Zen Habits: On Holiday

The American idea of being on holiday (or vacation) brings to mind images of empty beaches, sipping margaritas, or just lazing about for days on end. We think of a time when we don't have to worry so much and we get to "enjoy life". But how often do your holidays turn out like that? I just returned from a week long holiday in California and while it was fun, it was also very stressful.



First off, it wasn't just me and my sweetheart. We were staying with family. MY family. Aside from the plans we had made for ourselves, my family had made plans for us. This made for some truly awkward and uncomfortable conversations, and it added a lot of stress. We dealt with it the only way we know how - by staying true to ourselves. This led to some disappointment in my family, but such is life. It came down to being honest: This is OUR holiday and we will spend our time doing things we want to do. We still spent time with family, but it was on terms we found agreeable.

What news sources do you read everyday?

As many people know, . This has basically thrown my world upside down as it is where I check my news every single day, but it also has me thinking about WHAT news I read daily. I try to maintain a balance of global and local news, with a quality mix of hard-hitting journalism and hilarious lists of "things that prove I grew up in the 90s". BUT LIKE ALWAYS BEING ON THE HUNT FOR NEW MUSIC, I AM ALWAYS LOOKING FOR WAYS TO HONE MY MEDIA CONSUMPTION AND READ MORE QUALITY NEWS.



Therefore, whenever I meet someone famous, or a person I admire, the number one question I ask them is "what are your go-to news sources?".

Time Of Eve...

The time had come to stock up on a few obscure items, so, I turned to my favorite online retailer and ordered TIME OF EVE...

Two high school boys grapple with their own humanity in a world where people are serviced by androids distinguished from their masters only by the halo-like rings above their heads. Rikuo and his childhood pal Masaki find their assumptions about androids radically challenged when they come across Time of EVE, a cafe where androids and people are treated as equals.
