You can sketch

Drawing is the process of layering shapes, lines, and scribbles on top of each other until you get a happy result.

Sketching is the process of roughly putting an idea on paper. It is used for exploration and a great way to brainstorm. When you make a mistake, use it to your advantage, or if you can't, move on.

Self Improvement

4 IDEAS

Gain career clarity first

In order to advocate for yourself you must seek in you your strengths, the things that vitalize you among those that drain you, and knowing which environment empowers you and enables you to do your best work.

Other people won't advocate for you and they most certainly won't speak up in your absence.

Jane Austen: a model of perseverance

Beyond the love and romance, the novels of Jane Austen has a layer of steel and resilience that may inspire us in uncertain times.

Jane Austen's own life was a lesson of perseverance: She published six novels in seven years and died at the age of 41. When she was 25, her rector father retired. Austen, her parents and her sister spent the next eight years travelling between small properties in Bath, relatives' homes and seaside resorts. Much of this life is reflected in her heroines.

Meteors

Meteors, or shooting stars, are pieces of space rock burning up in the atmosphere as gravity pulls them towards the earth. Most meteors are created from icy comets which undergo sublimation due to the sun, turning from ice to gas.

The ice evaporates and forms a stream of debris, slamming into our atmosphere and creating a spectacular display of meteor showers in the night sky.

News consumption

Abstaining from all news would probably look like you're about to betray your civic duty, but watching every story in real-time is a betrayal of your sanity.

Consider checking in on the news once a day for 45 minutes, preferably in the morning. Listen to radio news or a popular news podcast, or browse the main headlines of a newspaper. However, do not watch cable news or look to Twitter.
