Imagine you eat pizza every day. It's time for your next check-up at the doctor. The doctor looks over your test results, and the doctor says ...
It’s good to mold your beliefs into something better, taking advice from an experienced person about anything helps you change your thought process, and you should take plenty of advice from people. Parents help their kids understand things that the kids misunderstand, which involves healthy advisory sessions and seldom involves scolding if their kids don’t obey. This process of molding the wrong belief into something better involves reinforcement and punishment psychology.
In the Spring of 2018, I embarked on a magical adventure of a lifetime! I became a Disney World Cast Member through the Disney College Program. The DCP is a "paid internship" that allows college students to work at Disney World while getting some of the most valuable customer service experience in the world. While on my program, I worked at Colombia Harbour House in Magic Kingdom!
Time to take our fingers off our pulse and start living During these interesting times we are trying to cope as well as we can. Sometimes this means spending more than we usually would on unwholesome coping strategies.
On November 13, 2020, Harry Styles appeared on the cover of Vogue Magazine wearing a dress. It wasn’t an understated dress either, but rather one with frills and a low neckline. And this wasn’t the only picture in the spread where he donned feminine clothing. In four other portraits, Styles sported skirts. These feminine stylistic choices weren’t meant to make a political statement; rather, Styles notes that he just enjoys experimenting with fashion:
The Jedi have been the guardians of good and light in the galaxy for over a thousand generations. Led by their Grandmaster, they are sworn to protect the people of the Republic. Many Masters have walked the halls of the Temple, led armies, and channeled the Force over the thousands of years of Star Wars lore. The following is a list of the 10 most powerful Masters that have appeared in the litany of Star Wars media (canon and/or Legends). These are strictly the most powerful Masters, so those who were never granted that rank are excluded form this list.

One warning I always give any parent who is looking for childcare is that it is crucial not to have unrealistic expectations. Even though you want the very best care for your child, you have to understand that the very best care would be you staying home. Next best would be your child spending the day with grandma or Aunt Suzie who never was able to have kids of her own. If you are going to place your child in any form of childcare, including a nanny in your home, that person is a substitute and will never do things the same way you would.
I have been attending online classes since July 2020. The heartwrenching possibility is that the online mode would continue to go on till April 2021 when I will be done with my Master’s program.
Two decades ago, a brand new idea came into being through the vision of Jimmy Wales, an American-British Internet entrepreneur and former financial trader. Wales was born in Huntsville, Alabama, where he earned bachelor's and master's degrees in finance from Auburn University and the University of Alabama respectively. In 1996, Wales and two partners founded Bomis, a web portal that featured entertainment and adult content. On January 15, 2001, Wales, along with Larry Sanger and others, launched Wikipedia and now the site is celebrating its 20th year.
July, Corona does have a symptom for the uninfected, and that must be this summery slumber. These days, the sunlight burns moth holes through the curtains, making the 93 million mile trek just to wake me, a mummy wrapped in linens. Dog days were carved into our biological clock at an early age. Usually a favorite of school kids for their hibernation, this semester is loved for its sprinklers, ice pops, and 3 AM crickets picnicking out on the lawn. Overall, it’s somntastic, but the harvest time slug doesn’t seem to fit this summer well, considering at least what it’s been harvesting.
I have always wondered why many of the rich and famous choose to create minimalist style homes for themselves. I mean, they have pretty much all the money to do whatever they want to their homes in terms of decoration and design.
It can be the smallest spark of kindness from one furnace that can lead to an inferno for another. Something so insignificant for someone can change the outlook of another. It is something that is always said but not always acted upon. So simple in speech yet so hard to put into practice.
We’ve all been there. When the clothes are piled high, and the dishes are forming a leaning tower of Pisa. Coffee doesn’t even touch the chaos. This chaos was my life just a few months ago. Each morning, I would wake up with the same ideology. I would hit the gym, hook up to my caffeine IV, and grinned my teeth into a forced smile. For years, I entered the same routine, and it produced the same results. I was running in circles and not even coming close to self-actualization. I was barely making space for self-care. After years of following the same routine, I realized that it was putting me closer to my grave than my goals. If I wanted to survive past 40-something needed to change. So, I threw in the towel and entered the race. Here are three ways that quitting my routine changed my career.
Now, if you don't have a black mother or weren't raised by a black woman, this story may not resonate with you. In fact, for some of you "other" folks this story might leave you flabbergasted and feeling like this is your opportunity to stand on your soap box and judge. But, if you've personally had the "Black Mama Experience", well then this story will probably have you laughing out loud as you reminisce about something similar happening to you.
Hollywood’s next attempt at a coronavirus exploitation flick comes in the form of Doug Liman’s Locked Down, a heist romantic comedy starring Anne Hathaway and Chiwetel Ejiofor. These two play a couple whose relationship has run its course. After being forced to stay on lockdown during the COVID-19 pandemic, the two decide to steal a £3 million diamond.
In the timeworn trial of digital vs. analog, let's finally have that (tiny) piece of cake and eat it too: film photographers are not only actively embedding their work on Instagram, blogs, and other online platforms, they are also quite generously sharing their process and educating fellow amateur photographers on youtube.
POV. A new Vocal Challenge pops up and you immediately begin thinking about the creative angles you can take to tackle the prompt. You spend a crap ton of time brainstorming ideas, drafting and outlining your story and then you pour yourself into writing. You scour the web for beautiful media, photos and memes and happily add them to your story. Finally, all that's left to do is dot your I's and cross your T's and hit that 'Submit for Review' button. Done. Perfect! You promote the crap out of your story, posting it on Reddit, Facebook, Instagram, you name it! Then, announcement day rings around and...you don't win. You didn't even place.
I frequently find myself asking, how did I get here? This exact moment in time, about to do something really stupid? In this case it was definitely peer pressure. I was about to jump out of a plane in Namibia.
