The next time a man starts yelling at you, cut him off and tell him you just can’t talk to him when he’s being so emotional.

I have done this and can confirm that is a LOT of fun to watch them implode afterward.

Did you know? The modern mongoose and the fossa evolved from the same ancestor, which arrived on Madagascar about 21 million years ago. Learn more.



I like that this doesnt glorify death, it doesnt make death an enemy.  Some death is sad, some death is at the wrong time.  But its still a part of life.

How do I reach this point in life

A town known as the “town of books”, Hay-on-Wye is located on the Welsh / English border in the United Kingdom and is a bibliophile’s sanctuary.

I live not far from here and I’ve never been. 

It’s on my list.

  1. My sister just moved in with me and I’m very happy about it. 
  2. I’ve been getting up on time all summer because I’m working on an online course. 
  3. I just had my first MBTI birthday on the 16th (?—pretty sure that’s the date).
  4. I think/work better in the morning. 
  5. Listening J.S. Bach satisfies my mind like no other music. 

What’s an MBTI birthday? And yay for living with siblings! :) My brother will move in with me in about a month.

My MBTI birthday is the (approximate) date I started exploring Myers Briggs. :)

And yes, definitely, yay for living with siblings—well with this sister anyway. I had my brother living with me until about a month ago and it wasn’t quite as smooth, due to conflicting personalities…
