Finals are almost upon us. Before I dig in and finish up this semester, I thought I'd put up what I've been reading.

Strongly identify with this article, although I don't actually agree with much of the premise. I think the author has captured the experience of many of my peers… along with my family, teachers, and coworkers. Worth a read. How Millennials Became The Burnout Generation

This one is also interesting. There are subtle implications and assertions (along with a sprinkle of strawman) that don't ring true to me. But the piece is written brilliantly. Don't waste your time with the comments. I have been thinking a lot about nature/nurture and "blank slate" ideas lately. What Explains the Resistance to Evolutionary Psychology?
