Sink or Swim: Why Are Millennials So Damn Unhappy? [Chad Hensley on Medium]

As a millennial, we must embrace empathy and vulnerability. Be honest with others, and yourself, about your fears, challenges, and concerns. And finally, as Abraham Lincoln famously said, “Things come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle.” Shift your focus, surrender your ego, remember the greater picture; roll up your sleeves, and work harder.

I caught a beautiful show this past Friday night…

Bonobo totally delivered the experience you’d want to see from him, and this tour better continue sometime in the Fall so I can go catch it again once everything from the new album has proper permeated my listening habits this summer. The tour rolls into Solano Beach tonight and continues on to Austin and New Orleans, so go grab one of the tickets out front if you find someone with an extra. This tour is not to be missed.

CARRIE BROWNSTEIN KEEPS IT UNCOMFORTABLE IN SEASON TWO OF “PORTLANDIA” [Co.CREATE]

Despite adoration from both crowds and critics, Carrie Brownstein resists the urge to get too comfortable with her success, and instead hopes to build upon it. “The notion that you’ve arrived, I think, is–first of all, it’s probably false–but it’s also a bad place to make any kind of art,” she says. “To have a sense of yourself as an impostor or an outsider kind of pushes you to not settle for something.”

Great feature article for any Portlandia or Carrie Brownstein fans…

Just added this new-to-me blog Dear Coke Talk to my Google Reader…check it out.

Here’s just one of the pearls of wisdom amongst a ton of sarcastic blog wit…

I’m tired of defeating myself. I just want to give in and take a pill and hope that colors become a little brighter. But I don’t want to lose a part of myself in the process. Do you think that anti-whatever pills are OK?

Psychopharmaceuticals aren’t magic beans. They won’t make the world a better place, nor will they steal your soul. They just modify your brain chemistry a bit, the result of which many find to be a benefit. If the pills work for you, great. If not, no big deal, and it doesn’t matter whether anyone else thinks they’re OK. It only matters what you think.

Good stuff.

The New York Times just sent a news update to my inbox with the following headline: Earthquake Strikes East Coast; Epicenter Near Richmond, Va., U.S. Geological Survey Says. Weird, right?

Scary is more like it, I’m sure. I hope everyone is safe and sound; I’m sure it was pretty weird to experience and the first of such for millions of people never subjected to the occasional tremor like we are out here in the Bay Area.

That said, I’ve still only felt one minor jolt in my life and it was definitely enough to scare me. The force of an entire building moving with you is not something you ever want to experience or remember.
