This Thursday, July 12th, is National Simplicity Day in remembrance of renowned author and transcendentalist Henry David Thoreau on the day of his birth back in 1817. Thoreau is most famously known for his book Walden, which reflects on living simply in natural surroundings. National Simplicity Day is everyone's opportunity to take a step back from their hectic lives and reflect on how we can simplify our day-to-day whether it be by de-cluttering, slowing things down, or tuning into nature. What can you do (or stop doing) to simplify your life?


Did You Know

37 years go, today, the infamous video game characters, Mario and Donkey Kong were born with the release of Nintendo's Donkey Kong arcade game. Unable to timely obtain a license to the character of Popeye, and trying to tap into the North American market, Nintendo created the pet-gorilla-gone-rogue story line to mimic the ongoing feud between Popeye and Bluto. Mario, the hero of the game, was originally dubbed "Jumpman" before being retroactively renamed due to the game's success, and his character has lived on to be one of the most iconic in video game history. 


Have a great week and keep networking!
