Here is this week’s list of blog posts, poems, short stories, and other tidbits from my favourite corners of the web.
They’re Made Out of Meat. I’d never heard of this story story before. Have you?
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.
