The walk took about 13 minutes but was always too long for my short legs. The house I lived in on Long Beach Island which turned into my grandparents’, cousins’ and aunt’s house in the summer was about a 10 minute walk to the beach. But we were on 6th street and the pavilion and lifeguards were on 5th street so we zig-zagged our way there every day of every summer.
How to feel like a slightly larger fish in a world of 7 billion people
With growing tensions in the United States' political system and a seemingly endless list of social and environmental issues spanning the country, as well as the rest of the world, it can make us normal folk feel helpless; like any one thing you do to help isn't enough. At the start of the pandemic when I was quarantined in my mother's basement, I took some time to research how I could help. I found national and international non-profit organizations and most of what they were asking for were monetary donations. I gave what I could but then quickly forgot where my money even went to and I was still left with the helpless feeling and wanted to do more.
Miley Does it Again
Let me caveat this whole story by noting that it might come from a place of bias. I'm a huge Miley fan, starting from her "crazy" phase as some call it, which started during my last year of high school. Maybe I wanted to live vicariously through her because of how bored I was. I was drawn to the essence of freedom she exuded. The more I listened to her music and followed her work I realized how little she gave a fuck what people thought of her but how big she gave a fuck about other people, animals and the world at large.
I don't know a lot about baking and I've never made donuts myself, but I'd say I'm a pretty good judge of a good donut. Let's be honest, it's not that hard to be. What is hard is to score higher on my personal donut meter than a Marvel's Market donut.
6 Ways to Learn How Amazon Does it Better
As an Industrial Engineering student, we study topics anywhere from making work environments more ergonomic to inspecting the quality of manufacturing processes, but the underlying theme of it all is efficiency. This term is where companies like Amazon can make a profit. They can upscale the market of shipping products by doing it faster and cheaper than anyone else. Efficiency can be applied to all business sectors from technology to human resources. Amazon capitalizes on efficiency by investing in robotics and utilizing the space in their warehouses in tried and true ways. Through my education in efficiency, here are some ways I came to understand Amazon's warehouse and how the company as a whole became so successful.
That Acting Class I Took in College
After taking seven semesters of engineering classes, I only had a few classes left to take to finish my major, so I decided to fill up my semester with other classes that I'd been thinking of taking to enhance my public speaking abilities and to fulfill some of my interests. I had originally thought of taking a public speaking class, but I was tired of the strictly structured classes and I also had the faint urge to revisit my childhood acting career. So when the time came to register, I enrolled myself in Basic Acting without knowing anyone else who would take it or if I even still embodied that young actress from elementary school (who, by the way, played the princess in Princess and the Pea which I am still very proud of but seems a bit outdated to add to my resume).
