Learn to Laugh More

Originally posted on Ramona Crisstea:
I wanted to approach a new subject in this post that is different from the usual tips for dressing. I wanted to talk about something that is related to happiness and that is laughter. Through laughter we express out joy. Concentrate on the present moment because it is rich enough. Try to tell yourself that nothing is permanent, even the worries and unhappy moments. In addition to that remember that laughter is essential. The laughter can lit us from inside and help get through a rough day. You can take out of the wardrobe the most unconventional clothes and wear them. Moreover smile while doing so and get out of anonymity. You will see how everyone notices you and that is a good thing. This little thing can be on your list that makes you happy and remember to be grateful and joyful every day.

Indecision

Going back in time, I ponder over the last hour. I begin by reading ‘If on a Winter’s Night a Traveller’ because that’s what I am reading presently. At the back of my mind, I’m thinking about what an overrated book ‘Paper Towns’ is. After 18 minutes gone and I know it’s 18 and not 20 or 25 because I am wearing a digital watch. So it is 18 minutes 31 seconds precisely. I realise I’m on page 7. Bam, that’s where I started. I’ve read this sentence more than a dozen times. I am the man who comes and goes between the bar and the telephone booth. Or, rather: that man is called “I” and you know nothing else about him, just as this station is called only “station” and beyond it there exists nothing except the unanswered signal of a telephone ringing in a dark room of a distant city. I read it once more to see if it means anything different. Nothing. I must be out…

I can’t believe I forgot to ask you how your Halloween was! I’m super late I know. How was it? Did you get a lot of kids at your door? ? Let me ask you, what’s your cut off? Like what’s the cut off where you just wanna be like dude…..you’re too fucking old. ? My cut off is somewhere around twelve. Even around ten. When they start saying little wise ass, cunty things. Like they run shit. That’s the hardest thing about being an adult around a kid it’s just like dude, I was your fucking age. ? I’ve been ten, I’ve been twelve, alright? Then I’ve been eighteen and I’ve been twenty five; do you think I don’t know what you’re fucking doing? Do you think you’re playing with my mind mannnn? You’re not. ? ? Everybody’s gotta have that, you know? Like that adult…remember when you were a kid and there was that one adult where when your parents weren’t looking, he just looked at…

6 Most Valuable Life Lessons I’ve Learned

Disclaimer: Some of these are fact. Some are conclusions I’ve reached that I believe to be true. Take these- as I hope you take everything- with a grain of salt. God is in control I am not the center of the universe You will never truly know the mind of another, but never stop trying to empathize Listen. To other people. To wisdom. To opposing viewpoints. To your own mind Keep your head in the clouds but don’t forget about where your feet are Think deeply. Form your own opinions. Research. Never be content to mindlessly follow others Just briefly, I’d like to elaborate on point number 6. We feel comfortable when we fit in. Often, we’re so caught up in doing what everyone else is doing that we forget to ask “why are we doing this?” One thing I’d like to see more in America is people asking why. The first thing we need to do is question things (the tax system, vaccinations, or the quality of McDonald’s food, for…

Different Types of Annoying Male Co-workers

We’ve been working for at least five years now. There are so many personalities we’ve encountered. Although we live across the country from one another, it seems like we have a lot of similar co-worker experiences. So we’ve compiled a list with a few warnings attached. The general list was posted a few weeks back. We decided to add a few more to the list, and to add some helpful descriptions.

Play Store vs Playground

There are at least three playgrounds within the immediate area of the condo I live in, with my husband. Every morning when I join the rest of the corporate zombies on the clogged-up highway, I pass two out of the three playgrounds. When I return from work, I pass by the third playground. Yet, these playgrounds are empty and completely devoid of children laughing and playing on them.

Things I’ve Realized Working at a Front Desk

Originally posted on Me, Myself and Everything Else:
I’ve worked at a front desk for 7 years. SEVEN YEARS. That’s crazy to me! My first job was leasing office space. I loved it! I worked there for 4.5 years and was able to move up and become operations manager. It was such a fun job and I got to meet so many different people and hear about so many different jobs. My second job is the job I have now. I work for an HVAC company and pretty much do all things front desk. Answer phones, customer support, write orders, billing. You know, the norm! In my time doing these jobs I’ve learned some things…and they may not be the things you would think. Enjoy! 1. Your everyone’s sweetheart. I swear I get called more pet names at work then by my boyfriend. At first I thought it was an older guys thing, all the honey’s and sweeties I would get. But now I’ve realized it’s the young guys too. I’ve even been called babe.…

Exit: Stage Fright.

This topic is old news to me, considering how many times I have been called up for a presentation and when I go to give the presentation I clam up. I know I will never be able to avoid or run away from presentations, but it’s still one of my biggest fears. As big as my cockroach phobia and the idea of paranormal beings. If you have ever felt your heart beating so loud like a big bass drum, your brain and mouth suddenly going AWOL, and what feels like butterflies fluttering around in your stomach, then this is probably a typical scenario for you when it comes to presentations. Yours truly isn’t a fan of presentations. I abhor them. I detest them. I dislike them. I hate them. The idea of doing anything in front of an audience is not attractive to me. I suppose you could say that I’ve never been trained nor taught the proper way of stage performance. Not even when I used to play the piano. At the end of each …
