I’ve really only ever visited Discovery Park on sunny days, but this photo slideshow is showing me that this lovely nature preserve is worth a visit on rainy days as well.

"Since she’s joined, we’ve had this tremendous and unprecedented run of growth,” boasts BuzzFeed co-founder and CEO Jonah Peretti, noting that the site has nearly tripled its traffic in the past year since Nguyen began managing the data-science team last summer. Unique monthly visitors more than quintupled, from 28 million to 150 million, in the two years she’s been with the company. “It’s just like incredible to hire someone and say ‘your job is growth,’ and then you look, and she just like knocked it out of the park."

Even if you’re not heading back to school you can still stock up on some stylish supply essentials.

I cannot tell a lie—I have legitimately been feeling a whole “back to school” vibe this September, even though I’ve been a working professional for well over a decade. On that note, I pretty much want everything on this list.

"I have advice for people who want to write. I don’t care whether they’re 5 or 500. There are three things that are important: First, if you want to write, you need to keep an honest, unpublishable journal that nobody reads, nobody but you. Where you just put down what you think about life, what you think about things, what you think is fair and what you think is unfair. And second, you need to read. You can’t be a writer if you’re not a reader. It’s the great writers who teach us how to write. The third thing is to write. Just write a little bit every day. Even if it’s for only half an hour — write, write, write."

Wisdom from Madeleine L’Engle, quoted in her biography. Couple with Hemingway’s advice to aspiring writers and Virginia Woolf on the creative benefits of keeping a diary, then revisit L’Engle on writing and creativity.  (via explore-blog)

I’ve been failing on all three counts of late. Currently brainstorming ways to make time for the written word.

I love most of this, but especially #6: “Perfection is like chasing the horizon.” Just as long as we all agree that, as far as writing is concerned, perfection is not a Thing.
