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

We Hate Our Bodies, and It’s Not Our Fault via DelilahSDawson. This post started going viral a couple of week ago. You might have already seen it. If you haven’t, give it a read. It’s a good one.

They’re Made Out of Meat. I’d never heard of this story story before. Have you?

Songs of the Earth via tapastic. We’re all made of atoms. This is what happens when you really think about what that means.

I Want to Hear the Snow via navaara. The pictures accompanying this poem are perfect.

When Children With Autism Grow Up. This really should be a book.

Measles Is Just The Beginning. I really hope this article never needs to become a book, but it looks like it might.

The interesting thing about Happy Money: The Science of Happier Spending is that I’d already figured out some of it by trial and error already.

People get accustomed to treats if they happen regularly. They mean more (and have fewer health and financial consequences) if they really do only happen every once in a while.

Experiences are more worthwhile than buying stuff.

Helping other people is a great way to feel happier.

I’ll leave it up to my readers to discover what the other recommendations are. They were just as intuitive as the ones I listed above, and none of them require you to be wealthy. Even a few dollars can make a big difference in how happy you feel if they’re spent on the right things!

I’ve decided to take a break from recommending books for a while, so this will be the last one I promote on my blog for the time being.

What have you been reading?
