The weekend is just around the corner yet again. If for the past weeks, the two of you have been subjected to phone calls, emails, and quick dinners because both of you had to work late on weekdays, then you might need to do some catching up just to keep the relationship going. We all know that it’s going to take a lot more than that to have a satisfying romantic relationship. How can you make your partner feel loved when work is just eating up most of your time? Find time! Here’s are some ideas how.
Think you’re too old to learn how to ride a bike? Perhaps. But you’re not too old to learn anything new. Start things out as a past time for a weekend. Who knows, you might even turn some into hobbies. Give yourself a chance at learning some new knack instantly – by trying out these activities on a weekend.
How do you offset a stressful day at work? By ending it with a soothing night! Does your work suck? You won’t really feel this way if you love your job. But the thing is, it ain’t much fun if it leaves you all stressed out, regardless of whether or not the paycheck is a whopper. True, you have to perform your best and be no less than excellent. But the question is, what happens when you leave your desk? You slouch your way home with thoughts of deadlines ringing in your ear. You just need to unwind.
One other thing that can make you feel super depressed is friendship gone bad. Having a fallout with a friend is very critical, and it feels like losing a limb. When someone who used to be very close to you suddenly becomes distant and aloof, it’s very hard not to fret over it with the level of fretting snowballing depending on the closeness you used to have. How do you repair a damaged bond? What can you do to regain the trust you lost?
What are the things you feel you are yet to do, to have, to achieve? Life usually shows us that you have to work hard for the things you need, and even harder for the things you want. If you want more than what you have now, it’s time to focus your mind on building your future. Here are a few point to help you work towards achieving your goals.
It doesn’t mean projecting your personality at all times, making you seem like a snotty bitch. It means gaining people’s respect on your own opinions, feelings, and all the things you have to say. When you are talking to your colleagues and officemates, you can’t let them just cut you off when you know you have a major point or argument. You should know how to believe in the things you have to say and learn to be assertive so that people around you will start to listen to what you have to say.
Having a party at your place can be inconvenient at times especially if some of your guests lack some tact. The party’s died already, it’s already late, and they’re still hogging your couch. One way too deal with them is to send some subtle signals. Here are some of the cues that you could drop saying “Get out.”
Nope. It’s not Windows messing with you as always (it sucks how all those errors make you look like an idiot). But in terms of potshots taken, I bet you’ve insulted your computer a lot more than what a normal person can take in a lifetime. So wouldn’t it be time for your computer to take potshots at you for a change. Insult is a simple program that generates insults for you on the fly. It even has an editable database for you to add just a bit more insults. It’s just one of those fun downloads. Works in Windows 98, ME, XP and Vista. Download Insult here.
Ear pain while flying is caused by your eardrums expanding and contracting due to the changes in pressure. This might often cause discomfort, slight hearing loss, ringing in ear and dizziness. Here are some prevention techniques.
Opening a bottle of champagne will be easier if you chill it in a bucket filled with ice rather than chilling the whole bottle inside the refrigerator. The reason? Chilling the whole bottle would make the whole thing contract squeezing the cork firmly in place. With the neck clinging to the cork, you might not also get that popping sound. Dipping in an ice bucket would expose the neck to room temperature instead, preventing the neck from constricting the cork and allowing for an easy pop.
