APRIL Articles

That time flies so fast is a cliche you don’t need to hear from me but that’s the truth. To be fair, I have to admit that this month, I managed to finish ONE PIECE Manga and two psychology books. It’s time for a new batch of articles! Feel free to click on the article titles to be redirected- I know my summaries and reactions tend to have very little content.

Mister Horizontal & Miss Vertical: A Minimalist Illustrated Meditation on How We Become Who We Are

The patterns are entertaining. Do not be mislead by the photos though because the topic is beyond them.

Uninspirational Quotes for People Who Hate Inspirational Quotes
Yes, this is not exactly what people may call an article but I got this from Ms Lea Salonga’s Twitter.
I like this in particular:
Be yourself,
No one else wants to be you.

Our Smallness and the Cosmic Scale: How Big the Universe Is Relative to Us, Animated

Sometimes, it amazes me how people tend to forget that there is something bigger than the four corners of office cubicles or comfortable homes they confine themselves in.

The Hidden Upsides of Revenge
They don’t say ‘revenge is a dish best served cold’ for nothing.

How to make the best mojito
I love Mojito and I do believe it’s the best drink for summer. Then again, I drink it no matter what season we have. I can’t wait to be able to perfect my own recipe, though.

The Nothingness of Personality: Young Borges on the Self

I’m still in a love-and-hate relationship with my personality test results but I do love reading articles about how people perceive personality.

There are 19 Smiles but only 6 are for Happiness

For a person who doesn’t smile often, this article is precious. In fact, while writing this, a part of my brain is counting how many smiles I put on my face show happiness.

The Marathon Men: Suicidal man will run alongside stranger who talked him down from a bridge
J.K. Rowling quoted this and since she’s the J.K. Rowling, what she says is beautiful must really be extraordinary.

It must be a twist of fate but it is fascinating that unsung heroes get the recognition they deserve through social media.

Georgia O’Keeffe on Success, Public Opinion, and What It Means to Be an Artist, in a Letter to Sherwood Anderson

It must be because I’ve read too much about MBTI and Carl Jung’s Cognitive Processes these days that I can’t learn to disassociate typology to how people write but I’m taking a shot at it: O’Keeffe might be an INTP. I cannot say for sure because I am not a certified typologist, I haven’t learned everything that has to be learned about Cognitive Processes but based on the chunk of letters provided in this link, I can somehow see a thinking process that concerned itself with what was already in the writer’s brain, paired by how she could recognize patterns ‘subconsciously.’ Her disregard for public opinion is also another consideration.

Here’s How Much Coffee Is Really Safe to Drink

Hurrah for four cups of coffee a day! How big the cup is a different topic. Just remember, 400 mg = 4 cups of 8-ounce coffee.
