The Easiest Ways to Make Money, Without Leaving Your Bed
I can remember when I was 12, wishing I had my own money to go to the mall and buy what I wanted with. But, there are laws which make it illegal for anyone under the age of 16 to work, so I was stuck depending on my parents for spending money. One day I thought, "There has to be somewhere online where I can make money." I hopped on Google and sure enough—there were dozens of websites willing to pay me to complete surveys and even watch videos. I QUICKLY signed up and within about two months, my first check came in.
An Open Letter to My Dad
Dad, I can remember when I was little and only had eyes for you. You could do no wrong, you were my superhero, and if anyone asked who I was going to marry when I was older, I told them, "my daddy!" Of course as I have grown up, our relationship has changed, but you are still, and always will be, the man who has my heart.
Why You Need to Add Turmeric to Your Diet
I had first heard about turmeric a few years ago while scrolling through my Pinterest feed. It was a post about turmeric tea, but I quickly scrolled past it being that I didn't know what turmeric even was. Turmeric is a spice traditionally used in the Middle East and South Asia, but has worked its way into western culture. It is most popularly sold as a seasoning or in capsules and does wonders for the body.
The Struggles of Working at a Tanning Salon
I worked in a tanning salon for about two years and I loved it. I loved the atmosphere, the knowledge of tanning and tanning products I had gained, and of course- tanning for free and those employee discounts on lotions was pretty amazing. But behind the few perks comes a lot of struggle. Working with the general public is always difficult, but you see a whole new side of people when you work behind the counter at a tanning salon.
Shows Everyone Needs to Watch
Almost too often I have those days where I finish a show I was currently watching, just to have no idea of what I should start to watch next. I like to watch a variety of different genres, but usually not the same type back to back. Unfortunately, in my “recommended shows,” I am only referenced to other shows which are eerily similar to the one I just finished. Sadly, I scroll through the selections, just to get overwhelmed by all the choices I have, and get too annoyed reading the pilot synopsis that I scroll back to my “watch again” category and decide from there what show I will rewatch, AGAIN.
From Weakness Comes Strength: Part One
I honestly couldn’t even tell you how long I have wanted to tell my story. The full version, unedited, uncut, wholesome story. I’d be lying if I told you this is going to be easy for me write, and even easier to share. There are parts of my story that not even my own parents and closest friends know of. (If you fall into those categories, don’t take offense to me hiding certain things; I did this to spare feelings and emotions while I also prefer to cope with certain things on my own.) I am finally telling everyone everything to symbolize me going into my adult life with a clean slate: no secrets and no bottled up stories and hidden emotions. I hope me sharing this can help others going through similar situations.
My Gnocchi Experience: Gnoccheria by Luzzo’s
As an Italian, gnocchi is a classic dish that anyone and everyone enjoys. This simple, yet versatile dish can be easily made and enjoyed, no complicated appliances or procedures required. In fact, the basic ingredients include a potato (baked), flour, and salt (to taste).
