Introverts are observant by nature. They’re the quiet ones who prefer to sit at the sidelines and observe those around them. And no, they’re not judging people when they do this. This also doesn’t mean that introverts are wallflowers. They can talk your ear off if the topic is something they’re passionate or know a lot about. They simply don’t feel the need nor have the energy to be social butterflies.

As Susan Cain puts it, “We’re not anti-social; we’re just differently social.”

Never say ‘no’ to adventures. Always say ‘yes,’ otherwise you’ll lead a very dull life.

October has finally arrived, which means I can officially begin my annual tradition of telling you about creepy museums and attractions. I made a miserable attempt last year, but I am determined to post more than a few things, like, I might blog every single day. Shocking, I know! I even got an early start with my recent posts on the abandoned Jewish cemetery in Chicago and Jame Dean’s grave. Expect more cemetery-related posts because I have a backlog when it comes to that topic. Anyway, here’s an old post from the blog’s early days, which you may or may not find disturbing:

Florence’s Museo Galileo (formerly known as the Institute and Museum of the History of Science) is a must-see for science nerds. There are over a thousand objects, including globes, barometers and microscopes, from the last five centuries. But that’s not the eerie part of the museum; it’s Galileo himself. Although he died in 1642, he was reburied in 1737 after a monument had been erected in his honour. During the exhumation, three fingers and a tooth were removed from his remains and believed to have been lost to history. But in 2009, the body parts ended up for sale in an auction. Now Galileo’s mummified middle finger from his right hand is now on display in a gold and glass reliquary at the museum for all eyes to see.
In case you didn’t know, Galileo is most famous for saying Earth revolved the sun, which was condemned by the Vatican. Church teaching at the time held Earth as the center of the universe. He had been condemned for “vehement suspicion of heresy”. It wasn’t until the 1990s that the church recognized its mistake over the Galileo incident. In my opinion, Galileo has the final say by raising his middle finger to the whole freakin’ thing.

A simply amazing museum. I spent HOURS there. It’s by far the best thing about Florence except food.

Tipover Tuck

This stretch is good for your hamstrings and also loosens tight shoulders.
Stand with your feet hips-width distance apart. Interlace your hands behind your back. Keeping your legs straight, bend at the hips, tucking your chin, and bringing your hands over your head.
Relax the back of your neck and if the stretch is too intense, release your hands, placing them on the backs of your thighs, and soften your knees. Hold for 30 seconds and slowly roll up to standing.


One of my favorite poses. Great for a good stretch in office cubicle-land.

I think the thing people don’t realize with that bullshit “well not all guys are dangerous, you should give them a chance” or what the fuck ever is like 

if i had a plate of cookies and i was like yeah, a few of them have laxatives in them and one’s got cyanide in there, BUT THEY’RE NOT ALL LIKE THAT

you’re probably not gonna take a fucking cookie

I can’t breathe. This is so accurate.
