  1. keep good company. don’t hang out with negative, bitchy, judgemental assholes (or…don’t hang out with them too much. sometimes you gotta, especailly if they’re family).
  2. don’t do too many drugs or drink too much. (do shit, but everything in moderation.)
  3. floss
  4. hydrate
  5. unplug. we’re all too fucking plugged in, including me. put your phone in a drawer the next time you’re hanging out with someone. it feels amazing.
  6. yoga, mediation, or any kind of mindfulness practice is gold. it keeps me sane, at least. i don’t think i’d be here, where i am, without those things.
  7. i’ve been doing this one lately and finding it incredibly handy…occasionally look around, or wake up, and ask: “how can i be helpful” instead of “what do i want”. it re-focuses you.
  8. don’t take shit too seriously. everything changes.
  9. remember every so often that you’re going to die. sounds weird, but it helps. lastly….
  10. don’t watch stupid television, and especially stay away from advertising. it rots your time and your brain and your soul.

Darkened Cities by Thierry Cohen

Created by Parisian photographer Thierry Cohen this stunning photo series shows major cities from all around the world with no power. There’s no street lights illuminated, no cars, no homes lit up, not office blocks flooding the nights sky with light. With zero light pollution the starry skies above are able to shine bright and become visible.

A Letter To The Guy Who Harassed Me Outside The Bar

Reblogged from bookoisseur


“Ask your female friends, if you have any, if they’ve ever walked home late at night with a key pushed through their knuckles, just in case, if they’ve ever crossed the street to avoid a stranger, just in case, if they’ve ever taken the long way home because of the weird guy on the corner, just in case. Ask them if they’ve ever made up a boyfriend to get a guy to leave them alone, if they’ve ever gotten off a train car and moved to the next because you just never know, if they’ve ever shelled out for a cab because men like you were at the bus stop.”

This is a great, well-written piece by Emily Heist Moss. Read the whole thing.
