Since I have been pretty busy recently, I have not had as much time to write new blog posts. While I am still constantly finding new things I love to recommend, I wanted to share some of my previous favorite recommendations. Over the course of this blog, I have now written over a year’s worth of posts (383 and counting), so you may have missed some of these along the way!
Kevin Kelly is the founder of WIRED magazine, which is one of my favorite websites to visit. On his 68th birthday he released a piece called “68 Bits of Unsolicited Advice” (because he just turned 68). I was listening to the Tim Ferriss podcast when I heard about this recent article.
The entire article only takes 10 minutes or so to read (but it could take much longer to digest and read carefully), and it is filled with so many amazing tidbits that you could incorporate into your daily life.
One of my favor pieces of advice from the article is “If you are looking for something in your house, and you finally find it, when you’re done with it, don’t put it back where you found it. Put it back where you first looked for it.” It seems so intuitive after you read it, but at least for me it is a piece of advice I have never heard before (but I will definitely use it now). Still, this is just one example of many great pieces of advice that is offered in the article.
I think the article has a little something to offer for everyone in any type of situation. Not all of the 68 pieces of advice will be relevant to you, but some of them will be, and that is why you should give it a look.
This is a blog for myself (and hopefully others) to keep track of all of the places, restaurants, books, movies, etc. that I do not want to forget. I am a college student who has lived in the US, Asia, and Europe for extended periods of time; I am very lucky to have had these experiences, and I want to share my recommendations with people interested in any of these locations.
NONE of these posts are advertisements. I do not have any discount codes or promotions for anything I write about; however, this should be considered a positive because it means that everything I write about reflects my true feelings. In order to keep this blog positive, my posts will only be recommendations for the things I enjoy the most in life. The topics will vary between whatever subjects I am interested in at a certain time, and I will have 1-2 new posts per day.
I wish I could have started this project earlier while some of my memories were fresher in my mind, but it is better late than never. I hope that other people will have the chance to visit or experience things that I write about, and I hope that people will have a similar taste in life to myself!
