from “Text for Happiness. Or Sadness. Get Art Back”:

Mr. Mollica, the museum’s creative technologist, conceived of the project, but he is not an avid emoji user, and Mr. Winesmith admitted that his own emoji vocabulary was “limited.” So the museum recruited more fluent employees and set up a daylong “emoji boot camp” to understand the nuances of the characters. (“A peach is euphemistic for a bottom — we didn’t know that,” Mr. Winesmith said.)

watching the ferries pull up to the dock

from healthyish’s “25 ways to practice self-care”:

15. I Take a Break When I Need It the Most: At Work

I know what you’re thinking. The time to take care of yourself is when you have time to take care of yourself. Bright-and-early Saturday morning yoga. Sunday afternoon hike. But that’s not where my head’s at. I’m talking 3:18 p.m. on a Tuesday. When you’re sitting at your desk, ready to throttle your boss. Or quietly seething that your colleague got credit for something that your colleague totally didn’t do. That’s when you need to get up and walk away. And go do something. Anything. On such days, I head out for a coffee. Not because I need a coffee, but because I need to get out. I wander down to this little joint in a giant office complex on the Hudson River. And, then, instead of walking back to the office, I park it on a bench. And I just sit there. Breathing actual nonrecycled office-building air. Watching the ferries pull up to the dock. Because sometimes doing a better job means not doing your job at all. —Adam Rapoport, editor in chief

HERO x one million. reading more about her here.
