Tim Urban is the founder of cult-favorite blog Wait But Why, where he does deep dives into big life topics—like how to pick your life partner and religion for the nonreligious. His musings on why procrastinators procrastinate resulted in a TED talk (complete with Tim's hilarious stick-figure illustrations), which Sheryl Sandberg said “just might be the funniest TED talk I have ever seen.” Tim has lived with his tortoise Winston for the last 11 years and doesn’t know why everyone else doesn’t have a pet tortoise.

4 things Tim loves:
"Muji furniture. My apartment has both a Muji beanbag chair and a little Muji pillow and they're both amazing. Beanbag chairs are highly underrated."
"Cotton Candy Grapes. These are weirdly unbelievable and actually taste like candy."
"The Mac app Flycut. Allows you to keep multiple copied things on your clipboard at the same time for later pasting. I use this 40 times a day and I feel like no one else has heard of it."
"Burning Man. This is kind of a weird one, but I spent most of my life thinking Burning Man was annoying and that people who loved Burning Man were annoying, and then I finally gave it a try this year and it was the most fun thing ever and not at all what I thought it was. Who knew?"

Last week Laurie Leopold from Chicago won the Brooklinen gift card and sent in her Reader's Find:
"Pretty much the only jewelry I wear now is from
Michelle Starbuck. I love supporting local artists and her geometric designs using vintage brass are so classic. The kind of pendants and chains you can throw over a grey tee or dress up." 

In the spirit of sharing cool things, YOU AND 2 FRIENDS can all win this exclusive-to-Undrrated necklace set from Michelle Starbuck—thank you, Michelle! (It includes one labradorite Mini Vega necklace and one brass Vega necklace, a $104 value.) 

The first 25 subscribers who invite 2 friends to sign up for Undrrated 
here (just respond to this email with your friends' names after they've subscribed) will get entered in a drawing to win a pendant set for all three of you.

I love doing these giveaways—stay tuned for MANY more chances to win!  —Marina
