I have many skills, few of which lie within the realm of culinary adventures. After tons of time spent in organic chemistry lab and living on my own, you'd think I'd be able to work my way around a kitchen, but alas, my in-home menu offerings are limited to spaghetti, bagels, and the occasional omelette (fancy, right?) So you can probably imagine my horror when my parents left for Nashville yesterday morning, forcing me to feed myself for a week!

Recently I've been listening to podcasts before going to bed as a way of winding down. A favourite of mine is "Invisibilia", a thought-provoking NPR program about the unseen forces that influence human behaviour and psychology. Co-hosts Alix Spiegel and Lulu Miller blend scientific research, real-life case studies and personal insights to explore the incredible power of the emotions, ideas and thought patterns that define our lives.
