Totally me. I always google symptoms and freak myself out.
I have a really hard time hiding when I’m upset. I want more than anything to just go home and lay in my bed the rest of the day. Just sitting here at work is taking so much emotional effort. I wish I didn’t let my insecurities get the best of me.
Imagine, for a moment, that you’re a publisher hearing a pitch about a children’s book whose tangled plot braids together quantum physics, fractions and megaparsecs (a measure for distances in intergalactic space). The book also casually tosses out phrases in French, Italian, German and ancient Greek. Sound like the next kids’ best-seller to you?
It didn’t to the many publishers who rejected Madeleine L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time, which turns 50 this year. The novel was an immediate hit with young readers and with critics when it was published, and it won the Newbery Medal in 1963. Since then, it has remained a beloved favorite of children and adults alike.
But it almost didn’t see the light of day. At the time, L’Engle already had six books to her name, but publishers were perplexed by her latest.
Totally forgot about this book! I loved it when I was younger :)
“Those of us who own pets know they make us happy. But a growing body of scientific research is showing that our pets can also make us healthy, or healthier.
That helps explain the increasing use of animals — dogs and cats mostly, but also birds, fish, and even horses — in settings ranging from hospitals and nursing homes to schools, jails and mental institutions.” -Julie Rovner (photos by Maggie Starbard and Melissa Forsyth)
How do your pets influence and affect your lives?
Petting and snuggling with my little fluff ball always makes me feel better :)
I want to watch this documentary …so cool! We need people to do things like this in America.
