    I've got a lot more time in work, and digging around on spotify only entertains you for a while. As a result I'm constantly on the lookout for decent articles and features worth reading. If anyone comes across anything interesting they read, post em here!!!!

    I read this this morning on rookie and thought it was painfully astute.

    Empathy, In Excess
    “Hardening my heart” against my abuser was not only OK, but necessary.

    If you were to ever read just one piece on Michael Jackson let it be this

    In the nineties, he worked with business advisers to market a new sports cola called, simply, Mystery Drink.

    That is just too good. He could have asked Bill Cosby to invest.
