Moving forward to a smarter grid
Our country's electric grid consists of a network of transmissions lines, substation, transformers and more that deliver electricity from the power plant to our home or business—allowing us to connect power to our appliances. However, our grids are generating to its capacity.
Five things to do to keep yourself productive or just not feeling bored during the lockdown
The first idea I came up with is being active, go on a run, a job, a nice walk. If you live near nature, then you can walk on a trail, not near a lot of people. I’m currently using this app called Step bet. You bet a certain amount of money to enter a challenge where you have to complete a certain amount of steps in a certain amount of weeks. You are against other people within the problem and if you complete your challenge, then you share the pot with all other players that have completed the challenge too. A lot of people are riding their bikes, and if you are a person who has never ridden a bike, I think this is the best time to start. No cars and fewer people outside so you don’t need to feel as embarrassed in areas where you would learn to ride. I think walking around your neighbourhood is way better than going to areas that are most likely areas that are usually quite backed.
Simple, sustainable/eco-friendly alternatives for everyday products
1. Straws People use straws every day, most of the time you use a straw when you go out and buy a drink. You get one at McDonald’s, Starbucks, or just a general restaurant. Although many places have started to give out paper straws, they are still one use only. I highly recommend either buying a reusable stainless steel, silicon or bamboo straw. All three have their pros and cons. I prefer a silicone straw just because I am a person that bites on my straws and it can be folded nicely in your bag. They do have these foldable straws which are perfect for on the go. If you are a big bubble/boba tea fan, you can also buy stainless steel straws for these drinks, which I think is fantastic.
How to clothes shop better!
I currently have about 40 pairs of clothing that I have bought over the years that I regret buying. I realised I wasn’t thinking about the outfits I would wear. I’m going to present lessons and tips for buying clothes to save money!
I had a boyfriend with a needy ex-girlfriend and what I learnt which I will use in future relationships
The relationship lasted for ten months, but I feel that the only time where I felt the happiest was in the first month and a half. After that, it was pretty much a rollercoaster where I put myself through a lot and became someone I never wanted to be, which is scary to still think about it.
The Downsides to Relationships
Relationships are great, most of us know. Being in love is a great thing, but sometimes it can take over you. You start prioritising your partner over your friends and/or family, and you might not even realise it.
Dealing with Conflict While Having Anxiety
I’ve been dealing with anxiety since I was about 10-years-old, and at that age, I only really experienced it when I was in the presence of a specific person. I had a traumatic experience because of this person. At 10-years-old, I was shouted at badly and it’s affected me ever since. However, for the longest time, I didn’t know I had anxiety. I also developed depression about three years later because of bullying. It takes a lot out of you. I learned to hide my emotions as I didn’t want anyone to know what was happening—this included my friends and my parents. I also became very secretive and started isolating myself.
Changing My Perspective on My Ideal Guy
From a young age, I’ve always had crushes on boys, I think since the age of five years old. As I grew up in school and started to interact more with guys, I created my ideal boyfriend. But at this time it was very vague. I didn’t date till I was 17 and so my idea of what I wanted in a guy was based around the movies mostly and from what I saw from friends boyfriends. But their boyfriends were just boys, they were still immature and many didn’t understand the importance of maintaining a relationship with their partner.
