Beautiful people of tumblr, I would like all of you to know I met Christa and Kristina today, and I want all of you to know how happy I am. They are literally some of the only reasons I’m here today. So many times I’ve just had it so rough and didn’t want to live anymore and just felt worthless, and I honestly just wanted to die, but then they gave me hope. They told me that they loved me during my sad days. They told me to love myself, and not to put myself down. They are so sweet and such role models and it means so much to me that they actually cared enough to take time out of their vacation to come and meet me tonight. Christa and Kristina, you guys are amazing and funny and overall just some of the most wonderful people I’ve ever met in my whole entire life, like you don’t even understand. I love you both so much it’s insane. I hope I get to see you guys again because I love you both so much. Please never stop being the amazing people you are, I love you both with everything I have and am. So once again, thank you. ❤
Since I get asked a lot about where to learn more about the human brain and behaviour, I’ve made a masterpost of books, websites, videos and online courses to introduce yourself to that piece of matter that sits between your ears.
The Brain Book by Rita Carter
The Pyschology Book (a good starter book) by DK
Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman
Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking by Susan Cain
The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat by Oliver Sacks
The Brain: The Story of You by David Eagleman

This Is Your Brain on Music by Daniel Levitin
The Autistic Brain
by Richard Panek and Temple Grandin
Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Noah Harari (not really brain-related, but it is single handedly the best book I have ever read)
Looked in my messages and saw this. Christa thinks I’m gorgeous? I don’t see how but thank you so much it means a bunch to me, I really appreciate it. You are so nice to your followers and that’s why I love you Mama Panek. 💕💜
It’s our favorite time of year again!! Any month that has a 5th Friday, there’s gonna be a Bodyrock. We’ve been throwing down with Illvibe Collective at Kung Fu Necktie since January 2011, and each party gets better and better. 6 DJs cold smackin’ the dance floor from 9pm to 2am. Plus, it’s free for the first hour with drink specials til midnight. We live for dance and DJ culture.
