5 Finger Personalities

    Here are the personalities for each of the fingers you use in your daily life! Your thumb is the one we use for everything, especially eating. Your index finger is the poindexter, it’s also the pointer. The middle finger is the thug, always bullying and being mean to others. Your ring finger is…confused. And your Pinky finger is the innocent and shy one.

    If All Of Our Younger Dreams Came True

      Everybody wanted to go to the moon when they were younger. Imagine if everyone got the opportunity to go to the moon, we’d all be living on the moon doing nothing. The moon would be filled with unemployed dreamers.

      Freedom Of Speech Tweet

      powerful images

        Because of twitter, our freedom of speech right is used to its fullest extent. As we go to different parts of the world, we see the twitter bird starts dying off as not everybody has that right.

        America’s tweety bird is alive and singing as we have our freedom of speech right. In other countries the bird is aware of what it says because its speech is watched. The bird starts flying away when in countries with temporary freedom of speech because it wants to avoid trouble. Then the bird turns into a robot in countries with manipulated freedom of speech. Now the robot bird is caged in when in countries with repressed speech. And finally, the bird is cooked having its freedom killed when in countries with no freedom of speech.

        “What Did I Miss?”

        powerful images

          Because of smartphones, this generation isn’t fully aware of life around them. We’ll roam the streets with our heads down looking at our phones and end up missing the opportunity of a lifetime because of it. We don’t live life day by day anymore because technology is taking up most of our time. We miss out on the real life as we enjoy simulations of life through electronics. Our phones have become the real life to us.

          Musics’ Influence

            Different types of music all effect the brain differently. Starting from the heating of the brain from rock music to the emptying of the mind by Raggaeton.

            Society Today

            powerful images

              Before, in the 20th century, people wanted to go outside and have fun but were tied down to their work and jobs. Their inner child would want to go out and experience life. Now in the 21st century we go outside as characters on games and have all of our fun inside with technology! Our inner child is doing the same thing we do in real life and doesn’t want to explore because as we grew up technology was always there!

                Life’s Biggest Disappointments

                powerful pictures

                  Remember when you found out that Santa Claus wasn’t real? How did that make you feel? If you were like most kids, you were probably disappointed.

                  What about your first heartbreak? This made you realize that love doesn’t last forever. As you grew up, finished college and got your degree, you realized that having this piece of paper doesn’t really guarantee you a job in that profession.

                  Now as an adult you see that the ideals you had as you grew up were most likely false and you have the pay the price for believing in them. And what is that price? Your time. Now as an older person you saw how much time you’ve wasted and now your life is withering away!

                  How to Quit Your Boring Life and Start Living an Interesting One

                  How to Quit Your Boring Life and Start Living an Interesting One

                  Think you have a boring life?

                  The definition of boring is dull or not interesting. Maybe you’ve been doing the same thing and living the same life for too long, or maybe your daily routine is limiting your growth and happiness. Whatever your reason is, the following list of 20 things can definitely make any day more interesting. Some of them are silly, while some are more meaningful, so hopefully just reading the list makes your life less boring and sparks your creativity.

                  Let’s dive in the list to quit your boring life and start living an interesting (and meaning) one!

                  1. Channel Your 7-Year-Old Self

                  What would he or she want to do right now? Color? Paint? Run around outside? Play dress up? Eat with your hands? Play that instrument hiding in the back of your closet that you haven’t touched in years?

                  Just because you’re a grown up doesn’t mean any of this stuff will be less enjoyable than you remember it. Give yourself permission to play.

                  2. Go Play with Kids

                  Speaking of little kids, if you have your own or access to any (in a non-creepy way, like they’re your niece or your best friend’s kid, you get the idea) go play with them!

                  They didn’t create an entire show called Kids Say The Darndest Things because kids aren’t hilarious. They also keep things so simple, and we can really stand to be reminded of this and stop allowing ourselves to get bogged down in boring details.

                  3. Order a Hot Dog

                  While you’re eating it, Google: “What’s in a hot dog?” You decide whether or not you want to finish it.

                  4. For the Ladies: Wear Your Sexiest Lingerie Under Your Work Clothes

                  Your “little secret” will leave you feeling anything but boring all day!

                  5. Play Cell Phone Roulette

                  You’ll need at least one buddy for this. Scroll through the contacts in your phone, stop on a random one and call the person.

                  You could spark an incredible catch up session or be incredibly awkward. Neither are boring.

                  6. Fill out a Pack of Thank-You Cards

                  Give them to random people who probably don’t get thanked too often for doing what they do ever day.

                  Ideas: police officers, librarians, servers, baristas, cab drivers, sanitation workers, teachers, people behind any check out counter, receptionists, your friends, the guy at the falafel stand, etc.

                  7. Sign up for a Class in Something You’ve “Always Wanted to Do”, or Something That Makes You Really Uncomfortable

                  Ideas: pole dancing, salsa lessons, improv, pottery, cooking, knitting (yup, there are classes for this, too!), karate, boxing, something techy like the workshops they run in Apple stores, get Rosetta Stone and learn that language you’ve always wanted to speak, etc.

                  What’s good about joining an interest class is that you will also meet new people!

                  8. Interview Your Grandparents About Their Lives

                  You can bet they’ve had some crazy experiences you probably never knew about.

                  9. Get up on Stage at an Open Mic Night

                  Whether you’re funny or not, get up on stage and just talk funny. And if you’re not, memorize a few of your favorite jokes and tell those!

                  10. Do Something for Someone Else That You Wish Someone Would Do for You

                  We all have a few ideas on this list. I promise you will feel amazing after and anything but bored.

                  11. Start a DIY Project in Your Home

                  It doesn’t have to be super complicated. If you need ideas, there’re plenty on Pinterest. Or you can also check out these 30 Awesome DIY Projects that You’ve Never Heard of.

                  12. Plan a Weekend Trip or an All-Out Vacation

                  This will give you something to look forward to.

                  Even if you don’t have the time or money to go on a vacation, plan for a staycation, which is same fun and relaxing!

                  13. People Watch

                  Find a bench in a crowded area (centers of transportation like airports, bus stops and train stations are great for this!) and just observe.

                  People are infinitely interesting.

                  14. Eat Something You’ve Never Eaten Before

                  Bonus points if it’s a random fruit or veggie.

                  15. Dance

                  You can get your friends together for a night on the town or just pull up a video on YouTube and bust a move from your own living room.

                  If you’re feeling extra brave, you can even dance in public and get other people involved.

                  16. Go to YOUTUBE and Search “Funny Pets” or “Funny Babies”

                  This is also a great quickie ab workout as you will be laughing hysterically.

                  17. Pick up a Book and Start Reading

                  Check out the NY Times Best Sellers lists and grab a new book you can get lost in.

                  18. Step Away from the Computer and Go Get Some Time with People You Care About in Real Life

                  Facebook stalking doesn’t count as real social interaction. You can even share this post with your friends and vote on which one you’d like to do together!

                  19. Check out a Museum You’ve Never Been to Before

                  OK, depending on your interests, this one might actually be boring. If you love learning, art or different cultures though, this one is for you!

                  20. Write a List of Things You Desire and Truly Want

                  This is a great way to help you figure out the real reason why you’re feeling bored about your life. Maybe you haven’t really done things that you truly enjoy? Maybe what you’ve wanted to do all the time has been left behind?

                  Think about the list of things you really want to do, and ask yourself why you aren’t doing these things (yet). Then start taking your first step to make what you want happen.

                  Now go make your life interesting and live your dream life!
