Bunch of links this post is. Here lies key things I have read:
1. Marriage equality, same-sex
Ruling that same sex marriage is unconstitutional in America. The New Yorker has a good summary on the key arguments for same-sex marriage.
There really is very little you can argue against same sex marriage without sounding like a selfish jerk.
2. White noise to increase your creativity
This is a website with audio that mimics a cafe. Some Singaporeans would say they get more productive at Starbucks or the likes. Really? Perhaps so. Research has suggested some white noise to be good for creativity. Although I don’t really believe the assessment, here’s a coffee shop background sound you may need one day.
3. On why I start not reading news news
At some point of time in my life, I realized it’s just impossible to catch up with all the news in the world. They are things that are nice to know that is happening but I argue that it is less important than you think. Important news come to you in the old fashion way — word of mouth.
Today’s mainstream news is filled with articles that embraces the negative aspects. There’s always an accident here, a murder case, embezzlement etc.. There just isn’t enough good news except for our Prime Minister planting a lovely bush at the gardens to commemorate some special day that the generation in the future will call history.
News isn’t all that bad though. Just read lesser. For me, it’s a lot lesser. And stop reading about mishaps of others and surround yourself with more positivity. Read social news briefly. Then do your stuff in life. Don’t ever read The Straits Times.
