Here’s the scoop, kids:
6 Strange Idioms English Needs - “Not my circus, not my monkeys” is just such a brilliant way of saying it’s not your problem, and it comes from Poland, and we need it, now, in our language. This article has 6 that are just breathtakingly beautiful at saying what we don’t have phrases for. Got any favorites?
Free 3 Minute Breathing Meditation - Sometimes, it just takes 3 minutes to recenter yourself, to feel better, and to come back down from the mania that life can thrust us into. Here’s a rad sound meditation, 3 minutes long, that can help. Use it, and use it wisely.

Global Fresh Water Demand To Outstrip Supply by 2030 - Sorry to be a huge downer, but this article was sobering to say the very least. We’re on track, right now, to outstrip our supply of fresh water on this planet by 40% in less than 7 years. I don’t know what happens to us after that, but it scares the pants off me. We need to fix so many things here, so many things.
Scientists Create Mirror That Can Reflect TIME Backwards - Yep, this one will bend your brain, but sometimes bending that grey matter is a good thing. Basically, give this a read, but scientists invented a mirror that can literally reflect back TIME, backwards. Holy crap. We’re about to be able to modulate material in time, and that’s wild. To quote the article, and really F you up: “Picture it like this: If you were to look at your face in a time mirror, you’d see the back of your head instead of the front.”
Crimson & Clover by the Pom Pom Squad - Saw this on Willow (the series) the other day, and it just worked, and I liked it. So maybe you will. Or not.

Want to hear the funniest prank I’ve ever done for April Fools? My best friend is not tech savvy at all. I posted on Craig’s list that I had free goats, and added her number instead of mine. So many people called her that her phone died AND she was terrified that people were going to show up at her house for the goats. 😆 I let it go on for 24 hours and then talked to her to see if she would bring it up. She said people were so mad at her that she didn’t have free goats. Didn’t know goats were a hot commodity. Best prank ever! 😆
My southern friend says “Not my pig, not my farm,” which is now my favorite thing to say.
