Recently A Year Without Internet
Interesting perspective from an Internet centered dude who took a year off.
Very similar to my own experience, except I only took a month off (which was much easier).
Friendfluence: How Our Friends Shape Us by Samara. Research has shown that having few friends is the mortality risk equivalent of smoking 15 cigarettes a day. Being with good friends lowers your blood pressure and has shown to increase our chances of recovering from disease.
Why women should embrace a ‘good enough’ life by Elsa. When it is time for my daughter to make her way through this culture of overwork, I hope she follows some of Sandberg’s advice. I will tell her to work hard and take a seat at the table, speak up and, of course, always negotiate her salary. But I will also tell her to set her own course and follow neither my model nor Sandberg’s. I will remind her of the time when she was barely 2 years old and ready for her first real Halloween.

Recently A Goodbye
The Office said its final goodbye.
I admit it hasn’t been the same since Agent Michael Scarn said his goodbye, but the show as a whole has been a happy spot over the years and is definitely one of my favorites of all time. I cried my ugliest cry saying goodbye. Farewell to a cast worth crying over because of writers working hard. 9 seasons. You nailed it.
