1) Listening to good music while cycling to work. Also, having fun listening in on an discussion between to older men wether or not one is allowed to cycle through the red light when one knows it's going to be green within a couple of seconds (read: when the light for the cars turns orange).

2) It's Friday! That means working 'till 12h30. Quickly going to do grocery shopping and after that I'm going to crash in my couch and watch a movie or sleep a little.

3) Going out for dinner with friends in our favorite resto in Brussels.

1) Sleeping a little longer than usual. And not having to stay at work too late this evening.

2) Second pile of work at work is slowly starting to disappear as well. 

3) Finished a lot of things on my to-do list yesterday that had been standing there for way to long. Hopefully I can finish it today ^^

I would like to apologize formally for dropping the ball on this community. These last couple of weeks have been a garbage fire, but it's still on me, and I will do my very best not to let that happen again. Let's get me back on the rails and start our fall art movement!


Cubism

Set yourself a goal that you think you can complete between today, September 20th, and December 1st. This can be a number of colors completed, a certain palette, a number of styles or supplies used, a word count, a combination of these-- anything that you regard as a challenge. Comment on this post with your goal.

On December 1st, one of the mods will put up a post where you can comment reiterating your goal and whether or not you completed it. If you complete your goal, you get twenty Novelty Beads prompts, with an additional five prompt for every quarter to third you go over your goal, at the mods' discretion.

Goal-setting runs from today, September 20th, to October 15th. The challenge runs from today to December 1st. We will have an Amnesty Week immediately after as usual.

Set your goals in this post, and happy writing!

1) Rebooked my flight back home, seeing Ryanair cancelled it. We're lucky we can prolong our stay for 1 day (with work and the airbnb and such).

2) I have 3 drabbles that entered a little competition. If all goes well, I might get the results tomorrow... I'm pretty excited actually :p

3) Very lazy evening after training: dinner is already prepared and just has to be warmed up. And an early night in!

Helena Bottemiller Evich @ Politico: The great nutrient collapse
“Every leaf and every grass blade on earth makes more and more sugars as CO2 levels keep rising,” Loladze said. “We are witnessing the greatest injection of carbohydrates into the biosphere in human history―[an] injection that dilutes other nutrients in our food supply.”

Diana Kwon @ Scientific American: Are Some Psychiatric Disorders a pH Problem?
Multiple studies in the past few decades have found that when people with panic disorders are exposed to air with a higher-than-normal concentration of carbon dioxide—which can combine with water in the body to form carbonic acid—they are more likely to experience panic attacks than healthy individuals are.

Cathleen O'Grady @ Ars Technica: Health benefits of wind and solar offset all subsidies
The climate benefits of solar and wind power were hefty, but the majority of the benefit came from air quality improvements.

Frank Viviano @ National Geographic: This Tiny Country Feeds the World
“Water isn’t the fundamental problem. It’s poor soil,” [van den Ende] says. “The absence of nutrients can be offset by cultivating plants that act in symbiosis with certain bacteria to produce their own fertilizer.”

Rosalind Bentley @ Southern Foodways Alliance > Gravy podcast: Hostesses of the Movement
[These women] opened their homes to the architects and strategists of the [Civil Rights] Movement, providing home cooked meals, places to rest and safe rooms for plotting attacks on Jim Crow.
