Like everyone, I guess I have a problem with stuff. With things - with keeping them too long, with placing emotional value on the physical object rather than the memory it recalls. Of course, I think I do this way less than everyone else, cause I don't have a problem with passive consumerism (errr....), and I don't spend tons of money on clothes, or shoes, or eating out, or on the latest gadgets, or all those things that personal finance books tell you to not spend money on.
It's comes as a surprise to no one, but there's now some official scientific evidence that drinking with your friends is has a positive impact on your mental health.
Seventy-five years ago, in 1938, Harvard University began a study following the lives of 250+ young men to see how the various ups and downs of adulthood would affect their experience. As Feelguide summarizes, "The study’s goal was to determine as best as possible what factors contribute most strongly to human flourishing. The astonishing range of psychological, anthropological,

A few weeks ago, we set about trying to come up with the perfect style combo for the urban bike commuter.

And in this new season, we're having some very serious discussions about going on an adventure and moving to a totally new city.

In football (as in American football, the brown ellipsoid one) there's a special section of the field dubbed the "red zone," that space betweent the twenty-yard line and the goal. And...a game's outcome is often determined by either team's performance in this zone.
