How to be Alone: A video that changed my life.
This is an amazingly inspirational creative piece.
I honestly just want to say thank you for not erasing my text, just to replace it with yours when this video is so special to me. Thank you so much for not doing that. <3 That was so kind of you.
I believe my life may have changed from watching this. It’s a whole new perspective on being alone. I love this
I get so overwhelmed when I see this again and again on my dash and watch the notes grow.
I KNOW THIS WOMAN I’ve met her she lives in my hometown she was our poet laureate for a year
THIS VIDEO LITERALLY CHANGED MY LIFE and taught me how to embrace my introversion and was my inspiration for going to dinner alone and going to movies alone and traveling alone and it’s still relevant and still challenges me on a daily basis
I’m so glad that so many people get to know Tanya Davis and this incredible piece of art
Still one of my favorite things ever
This was incredibly inspirational
I saw this video many time son my dashboard, and only just watched it. i highly recommend it!
In case you’re in need of motivation, have some from the Doctor.

Amazing button sculptures by Miami based artist Augusto Esquivel. Absolutely stunning stuff!
Alright, moving along to dopamine (DA), which is probably my favorite neurotransmitter (and likely yours too- even though you don’t realize it!). Dopamine is the neurotransmitter involved in addiction (shown above for cocaine- since cocaine blocks the dopamine transporter, it causes dopamine to stay in the synapse longer), and basically anything rewarding. When you get a surprise or win some money, dopamine is what causes that feel-good rush! It’s the transmitter involved in reward, but it also has other functions as well- it helps with prefrontal concentration, accurate movements, control of thoughts (too much can cause hallucinations), etc. It’s really an incredible molecule!
Dopamine is produced in the Ventral Tegmental Area (VTA) and Substantia Nigra (SN) in the midbrain and has widespread effects throughout the brain- in the basal ganglia circuitry and throughout cortex. I’ll be talking more about this one in coming posts since it’s quite fascinating to me!
