    Unpopular Opinion: Self Isolation Really Isn't That Bad.

    As an introverted mentally ill disabled woman, I have to say all this self isolation talk it's really not that bad. I mean the pro's I don't have to socialise with people and make inane chats about boring topics, that I quite honestly couldn't give two hoots about.

    USA Rx: Can it Help You Save Money?

    USA Rx: Can it Help You Save Money?

    For years, this was true - if you didn’t have insurance, you were out of luck when it came to prescription drug costs. With more than 80 million uninsured and underinsured Americans today, thankfully, this is no longer the case. Even if you have insurance coverage, many insurance companies exclude certain drugs from coverage or place limits on the maximum amount they will cover in a year, meaning the medication you need might not be available to you when you need it most. Fortunately, USA Rx can help you save money, time, and frustration when it comes to your prescriptions.

    7 Ways to stay sane as an extrovert in Self Isolation

    7 Ways to stay sane as an extrovert in Self Isolation

    I think we can all agree that at the moment we collectively hate this episode of Black Mirror. Everything has come to a halt and we are all worried about our friends, our family and ourselves, however the one thing that’s going to make an impact more than anything right now is our mental health. Having the right outlook impacts how we survive this without going completely batshit crazy, and how we help each other. People on their own are calm and collected, whereas people in a group have about the same level of chill as a clowder of cats on catnip, (yes the word for a group of cats is a clowder). In this article I, an extrovert, am going to help you with ways not to completely fall down the rabbit hole, and use this time we have in limbo well.

    In Isolation? 10 things you can start right now to stay sane

    In Isolation? 10 things you can start right now to stay sane

    It's undeniable that right now the world is a frightening, depressing, anxiety-inducing place to be...but as with everything there is a silver lining. Being away from family, friends, and co-workers in this difficult time allows you to focus on projects or hobbies that you've always wanted to foster but just haven't had the time. Now that there is no longer a pressure to leave the house, no fear of FOMO, no need to prepare as you usually would for the tasks of the next day, you can concentrate on things that bring you joy.

    Keep Your Workplace Safe This Flu Season!

    Cold and flu is natural, but painful! And staying away from it when the same goes viral is challenging! Especially in your work places. These are the centres where lots of people mingle daily and communicate in some way or another. Getting infected with the cold is but natural. But staying safe is an option we all do have even in such a circumstance.

    I Sit Down When I Pee

    I Sit Down When I Pee

    As we look into the rearview mirror of time and watch the previous decade fade into history, we look to the road ahead, and with the virtue of hindsight, may be fit to wonder what it was that culturally defined the 'teensies', and more importantly, what it is that we should have in the trailer towing behind us, to bring into the new decade [discard car analogy here]. There are many fit answers to this question, but one obvious one may be that which is best summarised as the MeToo movement. Men have been put on notice in a very real and public way, for all the blunder and bluster with which they move through the world. From the grotesque to the mildly annoying, male-centric behaviour has appropriately been put under review, and I, a fellow man, would politely like to submit my own gripe to be put under review here also. And that is the idea that has cultivated within our culture that men and boys ought to stand up when they pee. In the following paragraphs I will be outlining two key arguments in advocation for a sitting down urination protocol, with sanitation and basic courtesy as the prime and most important reason, and comfort as its secondary.
