Fangirl of sorts.
Dear Donald, You have Backpfeifengesicht. Good Riddance!
Dear Donald, Representative Hakeem Jeffries (D) said it best . You are a 'living, breathing, impeachable offense'. I didn't know who you were until the campaign period of 2015. My first introduction to you was through a meme - and it was a gerbil.
Don't Save Things for 'Best', Enjoy our Nice Stuff Even in Quarantine
Unless the COVID-19 pandemic is handled remarkably well in your area, like most people whose birth dates happened to fall during the earlier months of 2020, we'll probably celebrate our birthday in lockdown or quarantine. My birthday was on May 5th and like most people who have achieved milestones (like passing the 2019 Bar and Physician Board Exams, congrats!) or simply celebrating another orbit on this planet, we are limited in the ways we celebrate our personal victories.
The Diner Guests that Changed My Life
I have always worked the night shift. For some reason, I have always had a sharper mind at night than during the day. Also, they pay better for night shift employees.
Better Days: Freedom Tasted Like Hearty Seaweed Soup
Back in March, when the world was thrown in a loop because of the pandemic, a friend and I spoke what we would do after lockdown/quarantine was over. I said, I'd go to a Korean BBQ.
ICYMI: Top 3 Hidden Gem TV Shows to Binge During Quarantine
Being stuck at home during these trying times can be so tedious. But at least, we're not fending off a zombie apocalypse. We'd have to settle at home and be content with whatever form of entertainment that we have for an indefinite period. After all, that's as close as most of us could be a hero - by staying at home to reduce the chances of viral transmissions. Luckily, we have TV and the Internet to keep us at least a little bit entertained during these trying times. The three hidden gems I'm about to share here also deal with the themes of isolation, loss, and uncertainties. But, with the sheer force of human resilience - these programs have also shown that everyone can find their purpose and place in the world.
Learn Innovation in Iceland: The International Youth Summer School in Iceland is a Unique Opportunity for Future Leaders and World-Changers
The climate crisis and environmental degradation are persisting issues faced by this generation. Human recklessness is to be blamed for the current health crisis across the globe. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic that brought businesses and economies at a standstill, now more than ever, humanity is forced to rethink the unsustainable ways of our systems and even how individuals live.
Youth Global Forum: Discussing Indigenous Knowledge Systems, Inclusive Development, and A Well-being Economy
Article highlights: Indigenous knowledge systems have a more in-depth understanding of delicate ecosystems. The synergy between indigenous knowledge systems and modern technology are also drivers for inclusive development and sustainable economic growth. There is no universal answer to cure inequality. While governments play a vital role in shaping the economy and markets, they will not necessarily do so. In most countries, socioeconomic changes are driven by civil society groups, grassroots movements, and social activism. Investing in people, public social structures, education, and lifelong learning (more so for the ageing population) results in a healthier and more productive workforce which may result in skills that will still be usable in the near future. The closest possible option to close the gap of inequalities is to change our perspective on economic growth; shifting solely from GDP into a human-centered foundation. Case studies on countries that have shifted from the outdated GDP-centred economic model suggest that inclusive development and economic growth are not at odds with each other; they are not mutually exclusive and it's possible to achieve and sustain both.
