I know you’ve all heard of nits (head lice) and I also know that you all hate them. The pesky 1/8 of an inch insects feeding on the blood from your scalp, and are always reproducing and spreading – especially between young kids playing. Well, if you think they’re annoying and hard to kill, they’ve mutated!
Being a barista is a tough job and you never fully understand the stress and complexity of the job until either; A. You become one, or B. You know someone who rants to you about being a barista.
I thought, for this fun article, I would give you a rough day-to-day schedule of what it is like being a barista! It all begins with coming in approximately 15-20 minutes before your shift even starts. That way, if there is a line up (Which usually there is) you can have an appropriate amount of time to get your drink before you start work.
I am back with another CPU highlight, where I’ll be taking it retro with a game that came free with every IBM computer. It is a very simple, fun, and challenging game where you are a gorilla – hence the name – and you are hurling an explosive banana at another gorilla. The MS DOS 5.0 was released back in 1990 so you can imagine the quality of PC game this could have been.
The controls are actually very simple: when your turn begins you must put in the angle at which you want to throw the banana, followed by the velocity you’d like it to travel at. If that’s not challenging enough for you though, there’s also an option at the beginning of the game to adjust the gravity settings and increase its difficulty.
Unfortunately, without a doxbox you cannot access the original game, but people have graciously recreated this game online, where you can try it absolutely free. Click this link to play it now!
Let me know how you like it. Maybe it could be a game to put into the arcade – you never know!
Hey Everyone, I thought I’d give you a glimpse into what I have been dealing with these last couple months… Maybe you’ve been there before, or are there right now and do not know what to do.
As most of you know I have been working two, at most three, jobs and I am beginning to find myself at a place where I actually miss my social life. I actually didn’t understand how much I valued social interaction until I deprived myself of it.
I had never really heard of this saying before tonight but every time I say it, it becomes more and more true. Have you ever really thought of being in love, or love at first sight? It boggles my mind as to how our bodies and mind work, but I thought I would give you a glimpse of what I think about it.
I have never really been a very romantic person, and in all honesty I haven’t found that right person to make me want to bend over backwards for them. (I am assuming a lot of people have been here, and are probably here right now). I am here to tell you that it is not the end of the world. The way that we live our lives is our choice. But I haven’t always been this type of person. I had a lot of changes, broken heart moments, and relationships that have shaped who I am.
I had been a very insecure person about not being with someone and I really put my identity into having a relationship. Although at the time it felt very needy, it became just a way of life and I never really learned how to be content with where I am at in life. As time went by I went in and out of relationships very frequently, to the point where friends and family didn’t want to meet my partners because they knew this person would be gone just as fast as they came. Each time I would find one thing about that person that would attract me which then began a cycle of isolating myself around that feature or attribute about that person and ignoring those around me. I may be speaking to a larger crowd than I think I am. In the end, your personal life is yours and what you do with it is your choice. The thing you have to remember is that sometimes those who were there with you through some of your choices may not be there forever.
Have you been in a situation where you’ve allowed your emotions get the best of you?
