I usually spend the first hour of my Saturdays reading some Stoicism. The advice on dealing with insults from supposed friends always strikes me because I am so lucky to be surrounded by people who never offer backhanded compliments or genuinely mock me.

Every three months or so I do a gratitude list in order to try and cultivate gratitude, stem my desire for novelty, and seek tranquility by training myself to want what I already have. I usually write these in a notebook, but I am of the web and thought it would be cute to publish it as a blog post that I update every day.
