I could have used this information over the last 29 years of my god damn life

My mom taught me to pack like this and she gets mad when I come to visit and sees that I don’t use it.

I need to remember this for uniforms.

Oh my god, I am learning this ASAP. HOW DID I NOT KNOW OF THIS BEFORE?!

Meaningful Activities Protect the Brain From Depression

Our entire lives, when you think about it, are built around rewards — the pursuit of money, fun, love, and tacos.

How we seek and respond to those rewards is part of what determines our overall happiness. Aristotle famously said there were two basic types of joy: hedonia, or that keg-standing, Netflix binge-watching, Nutella-from-the-jar selfish kind of pleasure, and eudaimonia, or the pleasure that comes from helping others, doing meaningful work, and otherwise leading a life well-lived.

Recent psychological research has suggested that this second category is more likely to produce a lasting increase in happiness. Hedonic rewards may generate a short-term burst of glee, but it dissipates more quickly than the surge created by the more selfless eudaimonic rewards.

"Happiness without meaning characterizes a relatively shallow, self-absorbed or even selfish life, in which things go well, needs and desire are easily satisfied, and difficult or taxing entanglements are avoided," a study in the Journal of Positive Psychology found last year.

Anonymous asked: also east of west by jonathan hickman and pretty deadly by kelly sue deconnick are pretty good comics that are currently being published !

HECK YEAH

THANKS AGAIN ANON

Anonymous asked: you should also check out saga by fiona staples and brian k vaughan. it's still being published but it is really good and worth catching up on.

thank you anon

i actually have volumes two and three on hold at the library already so i’ll be checking them out fairly soon!!!

dadgangs asked: re comics: definitely check out morning glories if you get a chance, i think it's definitely up your alley.

HOLY SHIT THANK YOU

I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO REMEMBER THE TITLE OF THAT COMIC FOR AAAAAAAAGES

I KEPT THINKING IT WAS WALLFLOWER ACADEMY FOR SOME REASON

this is a big list yo

the recent new 52 reboot of dc makes it real easy to get your foot in the door with their INSANE FUCKING CONTINUITY. so starting there is a good place! best ones to start with (aka the only ones relevant bc the new 52 screwed up so much imo) are BATWOMAN(the caps and bold and italics are to emphasize that i would die to keep a single copy of this book from getting wet) and birds of prey. injustice: gods among us is the love of my life right now and follows it’s own continuity, so it’s also a fun thing to jump into. i also highly recommend the game which is fun as hell.

here is my to-read list to go along with my /comics page of things i have already read:

  • GREG RUCKA. ANYTHING BY GREG RUCKA.
  • GRANT MORRISON. ANYTHING NON-BATMAN BY GRANT MORRISON.
