Why I love Science. :) (And a little motivation for being a great nerd)

I know many of you girls reading these blogs are interested in media, technology, journalism, etc., but I would like to take a break from all that good stuff just for a few minutes and give you a little information on another interesting topic: SCIENCE!Yaaaay. :)Most of you probably don't really like it, and that's completely fine. I didn't like it up until a few months ago, either. Now that I enjoy learning about it (my major's Microbiology with a minor in Psychology), I want more people to…See More

The 6 Pillars on Becoming a Better Person :)

Character. We all have one. Some may have a good one, while others... not so much. Based on the recent statements made by Donald Trump, his character lacks some major qualities, while Oprah has a character made of gold and free gifts. But what exactly IS character?According to whatwillmatter.com, it is "a morally neutral term describing the nature of a person in terms of major qualities." How you acquire these qualities depends on how you deal with everyday situations, and extraordinary…See More

"Preach! You should hear how annoying my cousin is. Every word that comes out of his mouth is literally a complaint. Even though he's lost like a ton of weight, all he does is complain about his weight, or he gloats about his body and how he…"

"Looks aren't everything. Believe me, I'm a model."

I'm a really strong advocate for TED talks on TED.com/talks, for nearly every talk they post can motivate, inspire, or inform you in ways no other website can. I've lost track as to how many talks I've actually seen, but this one talk (among with countess others) stood out the most to me. It's told by a model, who talks about what it's like to be in the business, and sheds light on the not-so-beautiful aspects of modelling. It's a great talk that I highly recommend to everyone!

Ever since I had a new friend I have felt bad about not spending as much time with my old friends what should I do to not leave friends out?

  • Try asking her if she would like to hang out with you and your old friends. If she doesn't want to, and only wants to hang out with you, then ask her why she feels that way. Also let your old friends know that you want her to hang out with all of you. If both your old friends and…
