Random thoughts from the last hour

Take a peek inside the mind of a 45-year-old Venezuelan. Dream come true, right?
  1. Are there more women than men on li.st, or is it just me?
    Not complaining at all, though, you ladies are the pinnacles of creation. But I find it curious. Do lists not appeal to my gender? Am I unique? (Of course not, just... Pretty cool.) 😎
  2. A notebook like this for a bullet journal.
    Made from recycled paper. Not too thick, but they're not expensive. We'll see.
  3. NaNoWriMo?
    To the uninitiated: National Novel Writing Month. The last of November is the deadline to write a 50,000-word novel. Who knows. Maybe I can. (If you're curious: http://www.nanowrimo.org)
  4. Is it truly possible to "actively fight cynicism"?
    Comes from the last point in my last list (Ten Learnings from Ten Years of Brainpickings). In a world where the cynics are everywhere, and it seems like it's the accepted way of living, do we even have the strength to fight it in order to achieve a more fulfilling life?
  5. I really want a Miharu-goma
    These are traditional wooden horses made in the Miharu province of Japan. Like everything Japanese they have a rich back story. But mostly because I find them beautiful. (Made an origami version last week. https://www.instagram.com/p/BL019BRBk7s/)
  6. Death by cassowary: worst in nature.
    Just read that headline.
  7. Finally: here's a puppy
    Just for sticking with me till the end. Thanks. ☺
