The Brain Doesn't Obey The Mind
We’ve all experienced it, usually without having noticed. Driving to a familiar location on your usual route. For example, you arrive, and then the realisation that you have absolutely no idea how you got there hits you. This is true of many "mindless" tasks and behaviors. Subjectively, the time is just missing. Some are so convinced this is external that they swear they must have been abducted by aliens.
Freelancers: How To Manage Your Time Properly
When you start out as a freelancer it can be really challenging to keep up with your client's requests. Half the time you end up feeling like they are using and abusing you and the other half of the time you're trying to impress to keep the work rolling in.
What No One Tells You About That You Really Need to Know
Currently a bit behind schedule today. First of all, it was so noisy wherever I go went to try and work; secondly, it's so hot today that all you just want to do is sleep and not do anything, to be honest with you, but hey at least it's not raining and I get to be able to enjoy the nice weather.
Living Your Dream
Creating a life worth living seems to be a theme, a litany, in the underlying subconsciousness of people today. But it's the
So You Just Graduated
So you just graduated. You just listened to lengthy speeches about how many amazing things you are going to accomplish and how wonderful life has been so far. Your face hurts from smiling for so many pictures. You are surrounded by your best friends and all of the people that have supported you through high school in the most glamorous of clothing- all of it is like consolidation for that impending fear of graduation, that you’ll screw it all up after this day.
What It's Like To Be A Small YouTuber
Where do I even start about YouTube? Well, as this is my first post, I suppose I should start with myself, first. My name is Sophie Alice, I'm a 20-year-old living in England, studying two college courses, those being a Diploma in Counselling Skills Level 3, and a Diploma in Assisted Teaching in Schools Level 2. I was studying Functional Skills Maths Level 2, but then I learnt my name wasn't on the exam register and that course kinda crashed and burned.
Alice and the Endless Dimensions
This time I became tired of my daydreams even faster. Not that I didn’t like all those things I imagined, and everything was really very exciting, but the fact that it was all taking place only in my mind, left me quite a lot to wish for.
The Bad Business of Free
Authors work hard on their books. Independent writers not only have to work hard finishing their masterpieces but they also have to figure out distribution and marketing as well. Seems like a fair trade off for doing what you love, doesn't it? Well on top of all of that, you learn that people don't want to pay for your books; they want them for free.
I Hate My Job...Here's What I Learned
My first job was a delight, my second job not as quite. My second job was as a pharmacy technician for a major multi-million dollar drug store and it was a nightmare. I was in the busiest store within our district, underpaid, with bad management and at times horrible customers. At the time I would have given anything to get away from the job that was sucking the life out of me one prescription bottle at a time, but looking back, I am happy I stuck with it for as long as I did because it gave me a well-defined list of life lessons:
The Secret City Manifesto
When you've come to a point of inertia, a dead end, or walked a path that has led to failure, the only real option left is some kind of action. Inertia is the opposite of action so one must believe in kinetic force. Kinetic force is moving, active energy, but where and what it will accomplish in the end is not the goal. The goal is to simply get the boulder moving. So what is the motivation? To echo some of the words from a famous manifesto: "The price of existence is eternal warfare." In this case it's a spiritual warfare; warfare against those who oppose experimentation, freedom of expression and the taste of the unknown. This shall be their clarion call and their impetus to move forward without fear.
Quitting My Job As A Teacher Was The Best Decision I Have Made
It's midnight on a Sunday evening and I am not asleep. I have to be awake at four o'clock, but my brain seems unable to comprehend this fact. My body, like my brain, is completely and utterly exhausted and desires the quiet solstice of a good night's sleep. However, I know that even when sleep does finally come hours later, it will be tumultuous and fretful.
7 Things Anyone Planning To Attend College Should Consider
1. College Isn't For Everyone Many college students change their mind about their decision to further their education, putting themselves into hundreds of thousands of dollars into debt, wasted for nothing. Be sure to put a lot of thought into your decision, especially if you seem unsure about whether or not you really want to go, or about what major you want to study. There's always next year when it comes to going anyway.
