I am in love with Natsumi Hayashi’s blog and her daily “levitation” self-portraits. (via よわよわカメラウーマン日記)
Amusing text about us introverts.
“After an hour or two of being socially “on,” we introverts need to turn off and recharge. This isn’t antisocial. It isn’t a sign of depression. It does not call for medication. For introverts, to be alone with our thoughts is as restorative as sleeping, as nourishing as eating. Our motto: “I’m okay, you’re okay—in small doses.”

My goal is to read an article each day.

This website is pretty cool. Type in your address and it gives you a score (out of 100) based on how ‘walkable’ your neighborhood/city is.
My home at UNC is very walkable with a score of 89 but my parent’s home has the sucktastic score of 6.
It also gives you a public transportation score.
How does your neighborhood stack up?
