55 Hi’s    |    http://55his.com

55 Hi’s was started in 2010 by Ross Moody as a simple means of spreading inspiring quotes and quirky ideas. It has since spiraled out of control—in the best way possible—into an online greetings collective, of sorts. A destination for graphic goodness, tasteful typography, and artful alliteration. 

At 55 Hi’s, sincere life lessons are laid delicately onto handmade french paper where they frolic joyfully, side-by-side, with cards that become shot glasses. Why? Because both of those things will make you smile, and smiling is a nice thing.

THE MIND UNLEASHED.
A lot of things have changed recently. I chopped my hair off, I’m suddenly in my 4th job since college, I have found a love that is unrequited and have sealed friendships that mean and matter the most in my life. 
I am grateful with a new found penchant and thirst for all things wild, free and extremely adventurous.
I’ll admit that I’ve been pretty closed off during college and right after college - over cautious and a little bit of a… killjoy. But now, its as if the experiences of the world has given me an antidote for my wet blanket and a remedy for my inner withdrawals to try all things new. When I opted for my mind to be released from my inner demons, the world was no longer scary and pretentious. Everything is as it seems and I no longer feel the need to be adequate nor do I feel inadequacy in certain predicaments.
I feel myself…
Whole.
New.
Raw.
Opened to mystery, opened to possibilities, unbolted, unfastened, and unblocked.
Unblocked.
… It’s as if I’ve unblocked a part of my mind to help release my inner and true self.
This part of growing up is indescribable to me. It feels good to be here and to be completely exposed to the good and bad the universe can offer. To be able to tell the difference the failures life presents and still come out of it a little jaded but ultimately unbeaten. 
I don’t feel defeated even when the world gets the best of me sometimes because in the end, I’ve finally made this realization: I have my mind, my soul, my heart, my body and the people that matter the most in my life that love every single speck of me.
And that makes me feel pretty damned special.

Montessori education.

I was educated in the Montessori education

headandstomachache:

Montessori education is an educational approach developed by Italian physician and educator Maria Montessori. Montessori education is practiced in an estimated 20,000 schools worldwide, serving children from birth to eighteen years old.

Montessori education is characterized by an emphasis on independence, freedom within limits, and respect for a child’s natural psychological development, as well as technological advancements in society. Although a range of practices exists under the name “Montessori”, the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) and the American Montessori Society (AMS) cite these elements as essential:

Mixed age classrooms, with classrooms for children aged 2½ or 3 to 6 years old by far the most common
Student choice of activity from within a prescribed range of options
Uninterrupted blocks of work time
A Constructivism or “discovery” model, where students learn concepts from working with materials, rather than by direct instruction
Specialized educational materials developed by Montessori and her collaborators

In addition, many Montessori schools design their programs with reference to Montessori’s model of human development from her published works, and use pedagogy, lessons, and materials introduced in teacher training derived from courses presented by Montessori during her lifetime.

There are two ways to look at life. Actually, that’s not accurate; I suppose there are thousands of way to look at life. But I tend to dwell on two of them. The first view is that nothing stays the same and that nothing is inherently connected, and that the only driving force in anyone’s life is entropy. The second is that everything pretty much stays the same (more or less) and that everything is completely connected, even if we don’t realize it.
