  • Spotify has a website reviewing 2013. On it, you can see various bits of data about music in 2013. The page also provides some facts about your listening history. There could be inaccuracies with the data however. I’m not entirely sure that offline listening hours were accounted for.

  • Queens College offers a class called: Sociology of Drugs. Sounds interesting.
  • Availability Heuristic: The impression that something is more likely to happen because it happened recently.

  • While looking for appropriate summer classes, I took a look at the some of sociology classes offered.
  • Watched a VSauce video about risk and risk assessment.

  • Watching one of my fellows in a moment of distress made me aware of a different side of his personality.
