Things That are No Longer Fun after age 25 (or so)

Written by

Your early 20s are the years to go out, tequila shots, make mistakes, and wake up the next day with go-get-em attitude, ready to do it all again tonight.

Yeah, well, that's all over now, Here’s a list of things that just aren’t fun anymore after you turn 25.

 1. Shots. What’s that thing where you make the poor decision to do something that you used to be able to handle fine just to prove you can still handle it, and then next thing you know you’re puking in a cab? Oh right, shots. 

2. Talking on the phone. When you and your high school best friend went to college, it was fun having the weekly two-hour phone call to share each other's #NewExperiences. Now it’s just like, fuck you, text me, why must I use my voice. 

3. Staying out late. I’m still young! I’m still young! I’m still y— And I’m asleep at the bar.Yeah, having got up early for that job of mine sure is a pain!

4. Eating hedonistically. Because pizza every day is and a greasy diet did not feel like death. But now you have an old(er) person’s digestive system and metabolism. Some late-twentysomethings still have iron stomachs, and power to them, Mac and cheese boxed dinners and Gatorade dinners don’t feel like they used to.

5. Complaining about your parents. Your parents, or at least one of your parents, is awesome. You did not know this until you realized recently that you are turning into your mom or dad,  and it’s actually kind of great.

6 Signs He Might Be A Keeper

Written by

Maybe you hit it off right away and you think after the first date “he’s the one”. But sometimes, even when there isn’t instant chemistry after the first few dates, if you give it some time, you may  realize you’re attracted to someone down the road.  Here, six signs—that experts agree—could prove you’re with a man who deserves a second (or third!) date.

1. Your Initial Greeting Is a Little Awkward 
Maybe he stumbles up the steps or gives you the world’s worst handshake. While it’s not exactly leading man material, being nervous a good sign: He wants to impress you. Overlook the awkwardness, laugh it off, and chances are he’ll act a lot more confident as the night continues, says Patti Feinstein, a Chicago-based dating coach.  

2. He Did His Pre-Date Homework
Maybe he asks about the dog you’ve posed with in your profile photo or wonders how you feel about the latest True Detective casting news if you mentioned you were a fan. “When men really like you, they’ll pay attention to details,” says Strickland. Not only that, but being genuinely interested bodes well for communication down the road.

3. You Don’t Check Your Watch
If it seems like the insta-chemistry is lacking, but you don’t even realize the restaurant is shutting down until the server taps your shoulder, it’s a good sign you have a lot in common, says Strickland. “Eventually, you’ll be able to suss out whether he could be a future boyfriend, but for now, just focus on getting to know him. If you like the way he makes you feel and you have fun, keep going out.”

4. He Talks Up His Family

Cats are Not Dogs

Written by
Cats aren't dogs, and they'd like us to remember that, an animal behavior expert tells the Telegraph. We stress them out by expecting them to be as sociable as our canine friends, happy to be petted and hang out in the same space as other cats. But that just doesn't fit with how cats think, says Dr. John Bradshaw. "
Dogs were sociable before they were domesticated," he says. "Unlike dogs, the cat is still halfway between a domestic and a wild animal, and it’s not enjoying 21st-century living."
And when a cat is stressed, it can develop dermatitis and cystitis, he notes.
In the past, "with cats, all we wanted was for them to keep our houses and farms and food stores free of rats and mice, and they got on with that," Bradshaw says. “It’s only in the last few decades that we have wanted them to be something else."
That's not to say your cat doesn't love you, he adds. It's just that they "have their own lives" and interests.
(And, as he told the Huffington Post earlier this year, your cat probably also thinks you are a very large cat; that's why, he theorizes, they communicate affection with humans the same way they do with other cats.)
Some tips: Cats are likely to spend more time with you if they approach you, rather than if you approach them first, according to research, he notes. And if you're planning to get a second cat, you might want to bring its smell home first on a handkerchief: "It’s the cat equivalent of exchanging photos before a blind date

The Safest Candles To Burn

Written by

As the seasons change, and cooler weather approaches along with shorter days  people begin to burn candles, but research shows some candles are safer to burn than others.  The most common wax used in candle-making, paraffin is made from fossil fuels, and in 2009, researchers found that burning paraffin candles releases hazardous chemicals into the air and those chemicals are not good to breathe. Safer options are candles made of soy, beeswax and vegetable oils. But some people feel that beeswax win the competition. There is some research that says they can  can effectively reduce allergies, asthma, and hay fever by releasing negative ions into the air. Although soy candles don’t boast medicinal properties, soy is clearly a better choice that paraffin candle, however, soy can contain GMO products. There are some who think beeswax candles are the safest, and here is more info on beeswax vs soy or paraffin candles. http://empoweredsustenance.com/beeswax-candles-and-allergies-an-effective-solution/

Remember that all candles are fire hazards. Never leave a candle unsupervised. Safest of all are battery operated “flameless” candles that look real candles but not flame or release of any toxins into the air. Additional source for this article: Yahoo
