1. Boy, the short weeks can feel the longest sometimes, amirite?

2. Science news:  Trees Seen Resting Branches while “Asleep” for the First Time.

3. Beautiful life advice from Andrew W.K., the musician behind “Party Hard,” “Party Party Party,” “Long Live the Party,” and “Party Til You Puke,” among others. (No really, it’s beautiful.)

And remember, at the heart of it all, there is a truth and it’s telling you that life is beautiful and that you are a good person who deserves to be part of it. […] It’s a truth that tells us everything is OK even when it seems like it’s not. It’s a truth that tells us that it’s OK to feel however we feel, even when it hurts. It’s a truth that tells us that life is more beautiful and awe-inspiring than we can even contemplate — and, most amazing of all, that we are a very real part of it. It tells us that it’s all going to be OK. That you will be OK. That you already are.
