2018 Reflections, OkCupid, The uncharity of college, Tahoe, The mission
|Taylor Milliman||Jan 15, 2019|
If you haven’t already, I strongly recommend just taking an hour or a few and thinking back on your favorite things that happened in 2018 and what you might want to double down on in 2019.
Plus, it’s just fun to remember how much happens in a year.
Articles to read.
“In 2018, MIT’s operating budget was ~$3.5B dollars, and its Endowment was $16.4 billion.” Long read, but worth it.
Hilarious, spicy, recently resurfaced OkCupid article. My favorite part is how clear that data shows that zodiac signs have NO impact on compatibility.
I do my best to avoid the news, but even I heard about AOC proposing a 70% marginal tax rate. I love this article because it presents rational articles from both sides, and features Tyler Cowen - one of my favorite writers/economists.
The funny part of this whole thing is that such a policy would probably never directly affect anyone reading this newsletter (I don’t think any of you make > 10 mill 🤔).
Regardless of how you feel about the policy, this feels like the democrat version of tactics Trump used to become president.
Say something outrageous that you will probably never be able to implement
get a ton of press because of it
I’ve been really digging The Mission Daily podcast recently. This episode is no exception and inspired me to do a bit of exploring this past weekend 😃.
Should probably consolidate the list a bit, but I’m enjoying the variety for now 🤷♂️.
This coming weekend I’m headed up to Tahoe for some skiing over MLK weekend. They’re projected for 32-48 inches of snow between now and Friday. I couldn’t be more stoked.
I’ll be coming back Monday night which might make it a bit tough to get the newsletter out but I believe 🙏.
That’s it! I hope you have a novel and beautiful week 😉
