Welcome new subscribers, and a big thanks to those who bought a paid membership. Your kindness helps keep the lights on around here.

Here are my five things for the week:

  1. Because I never felt I explained it well enough, I did a deeper dive into why I'm doing a story a day, and my reflection on the first week. Also, I liked most of my stories this week, but I'm going to give Waiting some extra love because of the relationship in it.
  2. A video on why you should stop using Times New Roman from a research perspective.
  3. Eunoia is a dictionary of words that don't translate.
  4. This article on disgusting food is more than it first appears. At first, I thought it was just about food, but then it grew into something more about prejudice and racism. It's long but worth the read.
  5. Lastly, this 18 second video made me smile.

That's it for this week.
