The Main 4 : Must Have Types of Friends

  Let's take a little trip down memory lane to your first day of kindergarten or grade school. You were probably nervous, scared, or excited. Maybe even all of the above. You were probably worried about whether you would like the school or people would like you. You were probably worried that you might not make any friends.   For a lot of us, that's how the story really begins for us, but at the end of the day, we end up making those friends. Someone them even lasting a lifetime.     Humans are social beings. We aren’t meant to be alone. That is why any sort of relationship that nurtures a connection between two parties is almost always beneficial to both parties. Friendships are always beneficial. Friends give  you all the love and support you need. If you are in any kind of situation your friends will always have your back. The point is, friends are very important and that is why you consider a friend is very important.  You don’t need a lot of friends, you just

5 life lessons to take way from The Lion King

 After a year of its release I finally decided to watch new live action lion king movie.

But I made an exception for this mostly because I never get sick of watching the lion king. I will say I don't regret it. One thing I do wanna know is I'm I the only one that kept on seeing Beyonce doing the voice over in the booth in their head🤔🙂?  Like anytime grown Nala spoke that was all I saw.

I stand with picky eaters

I am a #foodie. Always have, always will. Till I die fam, till I die. Naturally, as a foodie, I felt it was my duty to defend the good food out there that were criticized or not shown enough affection to by picky eaters.   I believed picky eaters to be the Vilgax to our #foodie Ben Tennyson. I used to think picky eaters were just annoying, obnoxious, and not so open to change. I can't count the number of times I've said "Picky eaters are annoying" or gone on some "Picky eaters are the worst" rant. The sad part is most of my friends are picky eaters and going out to eat is a hassle. We never tried new restaurants because of the fear of being starved that night. I used to get so pissed cause I thought they were being selfish. My philosophy is if you are not deathly allergic to it, then it's edible. But now, after doing some research I realized that I was not being empathetic with my picky eater friends.    How picky eaters are born   Picky ea

Places to keep your emotions from going *boom* in

Life is hard, it really is. If only there was a universal handbook for this. Everyone’s journey is different. Everyone’s hardship is different. Sometimes it's the complications in our lives that lead to hardships. This leads me to my next point: life is complicated and one of the factors that make our lives complicated is our relationships.  Friends, family, significant others, and so on all have the power to either make your life a living hell or a lot more bearable. When they happen to be satan’s spawns and make your life a living hell you either let them know and check their ass or, for the nonconfrontational folks, do nothing and let it pile up. Now the problem with letting things pile up is that one day you will go BOOM! Whether you plan it or not. When your feelings explode, the least you can do is be mindful of the location. Here are three major places to avoid going boom.  The bus: This is absolutely the worse place to ever let your emotions blow up. It doesn’t mat

All about dreams

Dreams are often described as reflections of what our mind wants us to do, dreams are a wish the heart desires. That is understood when having dreams of success, luxuries, or even dreams about a crush you might have… But what about those weird dreams of a giant milk carton invading earth or being a judge in the trial of a cartoon character. I know for sure those are not any wishes from the heart of most people. When recounting your dreams people proceed to ask you a couple questions such as; ‘did you watch a movie or read a book on the subject?’, ‘Did this topic come up in a conversation you might have had?’. Answers often differ to these questions and are often not helpful in giving helpful or meaningful answers. The real question here is: “Why do our minds have this ability to come up with concepts that seem so real, which we have no prior knowledge to, that may or may not have come from a real-life queue such as a conversation or movie?”.     According to recent studies, dream

Umm….. Excuse me, this doesn’t have a label

      When out shopping, people tend to read the label on the back of the item they are looking to buy. The label will tell you every single detail about that item; when it was made, what it was made with, where it was made, etc. Reading that little piece of information helps you decide whether the item is useful to you or not. The purpose of a label is to simplify things that seem complex. For example; you have a can of tomatoes in your hands. The look of the can is foreign to your knowledge and when you start wondering how they got it in there, how they preserved it and so on. Just turn the item around and BAM! You got a label to answer all your questions. With the label coming in for the save here, it's convinced you it's not that terrible. And it's generally not terrible when applied to perishable items. However, when applying the idea to humans, let's just say, as eloquently as I can, shit is fucked up.     Labels are extremely damaging to humans and I'm glad
