Can I go back to this past weekend, please? It’s grey and hot and I’m trapped in my office all day. I want to be roaming campus again!

Breakfast on Monument Hill. It’s so quiet! (at Monument Hill)

Just reading some first year notes at the old entrance. Holla holla! (at Sweet Briar College-Tau Phi)

"I think everyone does. Even happy people. They may not admit it to anyone, but I think they feel it. I think they close their eyes, or go for a run, or take a long shower, so that they can forget just for a second who they are and what they have to do day in and day out. Living is hard. And every day our feet get heavier and we pick up more baggage. So, we stop and take a breath, close our eyes, reset our minds. It’s natural. As long as you open your eyes and keep going."

Via the great researchers over at Reason comes a poll that will leave you with a great big facepalm.

from Time:

Millennials use language differently than Boomers and Gen Xers (born between 1965 and 1980). In the Reason-Rupe poll, about 62% of Millennials call themselves liberal. By that,…

The only group I see out there actually doing a good job education young voters and those about to start voting about free markets is Libertarians.  That’s because Libertarians do a much better job at sticking to principles and not just playing politics, even in casual debate between friends or over the internet.”

One day people will realize that libertarians are not the same thing as the Tea Party, the media has done them a huge disservice with their biased reporting, and that a third choice is not a crazy idea. The headlines with the Reason report says that millennials support smaller government (when the tax rate is explicitly mentioned), are wary of government power, are socially liberal and fiscally centrist, prefer to be rewarded based on their hard work, and favor individual freedoms over regulation. Hello and welcome to the club, libertarians!
