I adore this quote. It really is true, there must be two sides to every coin. Or perhaps I just like it because it makes the upcoming holiday indulgence seem like a prerequisite for being a good kid the rest of the year. More cookies now means more good deeds in 2013? Yes. Let’s go with that.
I overheard someone this weekend saying (and I think maybe I’ve seen it online somewhere as well?) ” if he is nice to you, but he isn’t nice to the waiter…then he isn’t a nice person“. I love that, and I think this quote is a perfect match to that idea. Here’s hoping that every year we are superior to who we were the year before!
What can I say, you can take the girl out of psych class but you can’t get psych degrees out of the girl. A little list of books I have my eye on, never enough information about the brain for my liking. Love 2.o is top of my list, though I’m a bit biased since Dr. Fredrickson was a professor at Michigan while I was in the department, and for all of us who pause the screen after Chuck Lorre’s TV shows to read his hilarious vanity cards, now they are all available in a no squinting required collection in What Doesn’t Kill Us Makes Us Bitter.
If the human mind is a bit heavy for this time of year never fear, the holiday reading list is coming up soon!
