Should we mourn the end of blogs?
Any of you out there ex-Liverjournal-ers? 
I found this article from the Guardian interesting - - I definitely don’t (usually) look at Tumblr as work, it’s play. Do you? Amazing to think that those who are younger than me think that blogging is too slow and too much work. I love Instagram and Twitter as much as the next person, but there is something wonderful about having the space to post more - more links, more photos, more of your thoughts - than you do on the more up and coming social platforms that are coming out. 
What do you think? I have some fond memories of my emo posts from the Livejounal days!

Amazement at these origami skills

Up all night - the science of sleeplessness
If you, like me, are interested in sleep - how it works, why we do it when we do it, why some people do it more than others, why some people do it at “weird” times, etc - you’ll love this article in The New Yorker.
Really interesting to read the part about how our ancestors would typically have their “first sleep”, wake up for a short period of time to chat, have a snack, make love, etc, and then head back to bed for their “second sleep”. As a big fan of naps, I love this plan! 
And with that, it’s off for my one sleep…

Sometimes, you need to step outside, get some air, and remind yourself of who you are and who you want to be.

In my opinion summer is one of the best times of year to cook - there are so many vegetables and fruits in season and you can be outside eating al fresco, or grilling outside. It’s just lovely. 
This recipe is something I am adding to the list to try in the next few weeks, look how delicious it looks! Love the idea of “noodles” made out of non-pasta items.
Zucchini noodles with avocado basil cream 
Yum! Let me know how it comes out if you try it, too.

I can’t seem to get away from this song on the radio, and the tune is one that just gets stuck and won’t go away…. I think this will be my song of the summer when I look back on this year in the future.
