Today I'm sharing with you some of the intro to this very interesting book called, Origin Story: A Big History of Everything by David Christian.

It's hard out there for a Psych Prof.

Since 2013 there has been something very interesting and scary happening on college campuses all across North America, and beyond.

Got any other drummers out there? Keep at it! If you're ever stressed out from a hard days work, or school, co-op, relationships, anything, DRUMS can be an amazing stress reliever. Better than those stupid squeeze balls, screw that! No, you want drum sticks.
