    Created by Jack & Jenn at Who Needs Maps - Well, guys. I am turning 25. weh. After a bit of a whine, I realized I was having a quarter life crisis. What have I done with my life? Where am I now? What’s next? Have I accomplished anything I am proud of? FYI, I am Jewish Moroccan, so the parents are constantly asking about grandkids…(yikes!). Although most people coin monetary value and a 9-5 job with health benefits as success, I have found my version of success else where-through travel. I have had 9-5 jobs, I am currently working full time. But that’s not my…

    It’s always good to re-read books and to dip back into them periodically. When reading a new book, I often miss out on crucial information (especially books that are hard to categorize with one descriptive sentence). When you come back to a book after reading hundreds of others you can’t help but make new connections with the old book and see it anew. It has been a while since I read Anti-fragile. In the past I’ve talked about an Antifragile Way of Life, Learning to Love Volatility, the Definition of Antifragility , Antifragile life of economy, and the Noise and the Signal.

    Have you ever wanted different subscription forms for different pages or categories in your WordPress blog? Sidebars do not always have to contain the same content.

Sometimes we  have to write about things that are too personal, too important, or too sad for ads of any kind to be appropriate.
