I'm wondering why so many of us are so intently focused on the dystopian future we seem to be living in instead of focusing on more positive aspects of modern life and envisioning how the future can be better for us and our descendants. Are people really so selfish as to keep procreating without concern for what is being left to future generations? There are a lot of really kind, smart people on earth and it'll be great to get together and create a nicer future.

This is a model of a Roman kitchen from 1 AD, over 2000 years ago. I like it because it's still basically recognizable as a kitchen. I wanted to share this because to me this shows that some human things never really change, and I think that's nice.

Someone who I really admire is Summer Rayne Oakes, who turned her New York apartment into an indoor forest with hundreds of plants. She runs a blog called Homestead Brooklyn and works to help people reconnect with nature in the city.

One thing I've come to learn in life is that if you look hard enough, you'll always find what you're looking for. If you spend all your time looking for things which you despise, soon enough you'll see them everywhere.

You can choose to do that if you wish, but it'll bring no joy to you or anyone else.

Life is far more enjoyable if you look for the beauty in things instead.

- stay off the internet for more than one consecutive hour! A movie, a walk, a playtime with pets (phones on silent!)

- eat the yummiest thing you can

- wash your face, brush your teeth, and maybe even shower

- post some weird emojis
