Some Intermediate-Level Ideas About Tea – Part 2

Continued from yesterday’s post Varying exposure; South East Asian teas:   Off the broad themes here, it’s worth considering exploring tea types and sources outside China, Taiwan, Japan, and India.  Not that anyone could ever really “get to” all the tea types in China, or even do justice to just sheng pu’er or wuyi yancha.  The “generalist” approach is kind of assumed then. To me, it’s interesting trying something new versus only enjoying ever-improving close variations of past experiences.  ...

I Have Constant Noises in My Head

From a young man in Nepal: My brain is active all the time and has to either listen to all the subtle noises happening around and decipher their rhythms, or remember past memories and audio samples, sometimes on loop. I often get irritated by my my family members who I otherwise adore and are great people and I love them and behave well most of the times. When I wake up in the morning, I feel so sad about myself and the wretchedly unproductive day I’ll have to spend because everything is so inde...

Community Service for the College Application? Look at the YMCA.

Families often ask me for guidance on selecting the best community service and leadership development programs for their students. I recently came across a program organized by the local YMCA in my area that illustrates how easy it really is for students to get involved in community service. However, too often community service is just a notch in the belt or a box to be ticked. Students do it, but most just put in the hours without actually accomplishing or learning much of anything.

20 Tips for Traveling Alone for the First Time

Is this the year you will finally take that first solo trip? I was probably like you 12 years ago obsessing on how I was more intimidated than excited about traveling alone for the first time.
