Here is this week’s list of blog posts, comic strips and other tidbits from my favourite corners of the web.


via xkdc. Mr. Rogers is one of my heroes. I wish he was still with us.

The Secret to Forgiving Yourself. Why is it that we’re often so much harder on ourselves than we would be on a friend who made the same mistake?

How to Shrink a City. A Boston Globe article on how cities in the US are coping with – and even embracing – ┬árapidly shrinking populations. The idea of crops growing next to multi-story apartment buildings in the heart of a city┬áreally appeals to me. It seems like it could bring out the best aspects of rural and urban life!

You’re Not Lost So Stop Trying to Find Yourself. Why living in the moment and embracing uncertainty are the only sane options.

Gender and Occupying One’s Own Personal Space. I’ve been trying to do this more and more. It’s hard to break old habits, but the social expectations of how little personal space women are supposed to use in public is fast becoming one of my all-time pet peeves.
