It's the last Friday before Christmas. The city is buzzing, the offices are emptying and the year is coming to a close. Here are 5 things I'd like to share with you today:
Check out this excellent photo by wildlife photographer Sam Rowley. Sam discovered the best way to photograph the mice inhabiting London’s Underground was to lie on the platform and wait. He only saw them fight over scraps of food dropped by passengers a few times, possibly because it is so abundant. This fight lasted a split second before one grabbed a crumb and they went their separate ways. You can vote for him in the Wildlife Photographer of The Year Awards by clicking here.
Looking to meditate but also learn about the theory behind it all? Then check out the Waking Up app. According to their website, Waking Up is a guide to understanding the mind, for the purpose of living a more balanced and fulfilling life. They're also giving free access to the full Waking Up app courses to everyone from now until the end of the year, so get yourself the app by clicking here.
I feel like I fly in luxury when I add a carry on bag to my Ryanair booking. I think this trumps it. Casey Neistat got to fly for free on Etihad's €61,000 A380 'Residence' suite, which has a living room, bedroom and a bathroom with a shower. Madness. Check out Casey's experience below.

Christmas has come early for me as Tom Misch just put his first mixtape from 2014 up on Spotify. Perfect music to work, study or just chill to. Have a listen!
