How to Meow in Yiddish: A Note Of Appreciation To The Men We know that you also have a mysterious inner life. I bet it’s not the same as mine, but it’s the kind of inner vision that has produced most of the greatness in culture on earth. Once again we do it too, but this is about you guys. Astounding in your strength and creativity. And playfulness, given half a chance and some sympathy.

“He is happy who lives in accordance with complete virtue and is sufficiently equipped with external goods, not for some chance period but throughout a complete life.
“I can’t wait to get out of bed every morning. To me, it’s the only way to live. When the founders wrote about life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, they didn’t mean longer vacations and more comfortable hammocks. They meant the pursuit of learning. The love of learning. The pursuit of improvement and excellence. I keep telling students, Find work you love. Don’t concern yourself overly about how much money is involved or whether you’re ever going to be famous. I’m giving a talk at Dartmouth this week. It’s called the Hard Work of Writing. And it is hard work. But in hard work is happiness.” R.I.P, David McCullough

Max Factor’s Beauty Calibrator: A beauty-measuring device to analyze facial flaws, 1930s This is the Beauty Micrometer, a Clockwork Orange-style device that claimed to measure facial ugliness.
Dear kids: sometimes, self-care is ridiculously unsexy. It’s cleaning your filthy bathroom after weeks of ignoring it. It’s washing your bedsheets and vacuuming your floors. It’s forcing yourself to take a shower and brush your teeth. When that temporary motivation strikes, RIDE THAT WAVE as far as you possibly can. It’s the kindest thing you can do for yourself sometimes. Make your bed tomorrow morning. I’m serious. If you’re experiencing depression, the simple act of making your bed is an early morning victory. Each time you enter your bedroom, your made bed stands out as an accomplishment- no kidding. And the act of unmaking your bed to retreat back under the covers will feel unnatural. Stack up those easy victories- a made bed, a hot shower, a shave. Every little accomplishment is another step on your journey to better mental health.
How do I know? A duh. I know.
Nevada Northern Railway Museum Ely, Nevada Accommodations at the railroad for extended stays are something that no dorm could ever offer. The bunkhouse is reminiscent of a mountain cabin, but with more modern amenities like walk-in showers. Looking north from its kitchen, the Steptoe Valley turned purple at dusk with pinholes of white and red light from trucks along the highway offering a spectacular view of the Steptoe Valley. Adjacent to the bunkhouse, a caboose is also available to spend the night in.
