MEET NICK

Stephen and I met when we were both teaching English in China. Interestingly, this was the only instance when we have done things at the same time; I went to North Korea, Stephen went there later to run a marathon. A year after that I ran my first marathon. He married a beautiful woman from overseas ... and I’m still hoping to! This week I read something he recently wrote about ordaining a wedding, and I’m letting you read something I wrote years ago.
 

The Butterfly and Envy



Note from Stephen:
Nick helped me become a better teacher and guided me through the often intense, complicated, and breathtaking city of Yangshuo, China. A true advocate of the country, he demonstrated how you can respect and love a culture despite its disparity from our western norms. As two amateur philosophers, we often found ourselves in deep debate, sitting on flimsy plastic stools next to the street food carts that set up shop every night. I can still taste the cheap beer and odd-looking, oil-soaked vegetables that were served on a stick. I'm incredibly grateful for those experiences and look forward to meeting up with Nick again(maybe at his future wedding...)

A glamour shot that one of my students took during a class in China. Notice the important lesson of "I scream for ice cream" on the board.  
 

How to be Comfortable
by Cooper
 

Step One: Adapt to your environment 

 

 

Step Two: Experiment with radical and innovative positions


Step Three: Always take advantage of a good head rest. (smellier the better)


Step Four: Look as cute as possible so you don't get kicked off the couch


Step Five: Let go of all worries in the world

CNN airs fact-check graphics during Sanders press briefing

 


Such a bold and necessary move by CNN. With an administration that is constantly lying, news media outlets should do their part to prevent the spread of propaganda. That's the shit I like, keep it up!

Favorite Thing
By Tim Legend & Sophie Rose

 
At this very moment, I'm sitting in my office doing a weird little shake because this song makes me happy and think about my favorite things. Enjoy!

"To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children ... to leave the world better ... to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived; this is to have succeeded."
