GChat Digest: 2

Like most adults who work the traditional office 9-5, I spend my days working hard, and sending tons of links to my friends and coworkers via Gchat, messenger, or Skype. It’s almost like we speak in links. This is a roundup of my faves from the week.

  • I love being alone, whether I’m traveling solo, walking around my neighborhood, or just working on a project alone in my room. Not everybody enjoys time spent alone. This RookieMag article is a great starter guide to the art of being alone.
  • New York (and soon SF) may have Cat Cafes, but Japan has  Moomin Cafe. This looks like a lot of fun, actually. Oh, they also have a Penguin Bars, which really just seems like a bad idea, but I’d still go.
  • Michelle sent me a link to the BBC 1 Live covers, and here are a few of my faves:

  • The last This American Life did an excellent segment on death, by basically camping out and interviewing people working and living at a hospice. A few years ago I was interested in volunteering in hospice, but chickened out. After listening to this segment I’m pretty sure I made the right choice. I don’t know how they have the strength.
