Hi friends! We have a super exciting day today! We’re expecting to close on our hoouuuse!! Ahh I truly can’t wait to share more of the specifics when it’s a done deal (is it really weird that I’m so scared of us jinxing ourselves?!). Until then, here are some of the more interesting links I came across this week:
As a huge procrastinator, I found this article about the inverse—precrastination—very interesting. Excessive planning ahead and doing things too far ahead of time has its own problems.
An article that focuses on the importance of survivorship bias when looking at success stories.
Jack White spent 5 years and a lot of money to send a turntable playing a record into the stratosphere “to be an eccentric and produce a beautiful moment that people will talk about.”
The problems with airline travel have been in the news a lot recently so the NYT made an infographic about the economic realities of cheaper air travel. (We probably can’t expect first class service while paying greyhound prices.)
An article that talks about the importance of thanking people for doing household chores.
This is a pretty amazing weight loss story. She lost over 700 pounds!
