The Secret to BEAUTIFUL Player-Created Books in Minecraft
When it comes to my Minecraft builds, I don’t consider them done until every room is furnished to completion. Over the years, this has naturally led to some pretty creative decorative solutions. At one point or another, I think we have all wanted to build a killer library, filled with custom player-created books. Personally, I have always loved the aesthetic of a well-built and well-stocked Minecraft library. It’s always nice when you can get your friends to make some custom books, but when you don’t want to wait, or if your library needs specific books without a massive time investment, I have a wonderful solution that has served me well. It even adds a bit more atmosphere, if not also a little whimsy, too.
How Ebay Sellers are Getting Screwed
As someone who has been working for multiple ebay stores for the past several years, with people who have been selling on the site for decades, I’ve experienced and heard several horror stories. I wish I could say these were rare and not the norm, however, from what I have observed, Ebay continues to make business decisions which mean more profit for the suits and less profit and protection for sellers (the backbone of the company). In recent years, there has also been a massive amount of freedom given to buyers, who can no longer even receive negative feedback from sellers. During the course of this article, I will be listing some grievances I have with Ebay and, while doing so, exposing some scams which are being run at the expense of sellers, with total freedom under Ebay’s nose.
3 Steps to a Happier Life in 2021
By now, it's a moot point that 2020 was a difficult year for us all. As we move into a new year with new possibilities, thanks to a new and competent white house administration, we will finally be able to take a moment to reflect on ourselves, for a change. Over the past year, it seems the entire world was forced to realize the value of self-care. Things stretched to a point where they would break, if we did not face the reality that we can no longer hide from our collective and personal problems. After what we saw happen in 2020, we can no longer sit idly by and allow our responsibilities, to ourselves and to our society, to go unattended. It is necessary that we become as well as we possibly can, so that we may treat each other as well as we possibly can. Ignorance, intolerance, and injustice can no longer stand in our society, and the only way to begin to overcome all of these problems is first by looking within ourselves and making the honest effort to change. So, with that in mind, I would like to share a few of the things I will be doing in the new year to be the change I want to see in the world.
