Friend of mine named his dog Dogmeat. *sigh* If the dog ever escapes the house, then my friend will have to walk around his neighborhood yelling "dog meat" at the top of his lungs. If anyone offers to join in searching for the escaped dog, then they probably will not be inclined to yell the dogs name.

My dad had given me black and white photos of my grandmother’s family. They were so precious to me, that I always kept them in my camera bag and looked through them. Then later that year my camera bag was stolen and all those irreplaceable photos with it. I still think about it 9 years later.

I am not saying disobey your parents but don't let them get in the way of doing what you want to do. E.g. my dad wanted me to become a Dr. and forced me into a college I didn't want to go to. It ended up being one of the worst choices Ive made. I'm now on track with my goals, but I wish I could go back and tell him "No, that is not what I want to do".

Also, life is hard. You will have setbacks, but you can do it!

Many of us have some pain in our bodies because we didn't love our body enough. Me myself is having some pain because of not loving my body enough but with practicing mindful breathing in order to release tension in my body my pain has reduced and I'm more happy and more peaceful. It's a easy practice but a great way to love ur body to bring more joy and happiness

I down to working 75% from 100% and it was so helpful.

if you get a long ad on a YT video, then in the bottom left corner you can hit the "i", click "don't show this ad again", and when it asks for the reason you just hit "cancel" in the bottom right corner. It'll skip the ad for you.

Many websites on the internet now have annoying "Try our app" or "This is only available in our app" popups. There are also features which are often disabled for mobile such as the zoom functionality.

You can often get a much better experience or get features which have been disabled for mobile by enabling desktop mode in your browser (usually in the options menu, three dots in the top right on chrome).

Some examples of this: * reddit will continuously prompt to try the app and will keep redirecting you to the app store page. This is not present in desktop mode. * I've not checked this one in a while but facebook used to force you to download facebook messenger to read anything in your inbox. Enabling desktop mode would let you read your messages without downloading the app. * ultimate-guitar.com forces you to use the app if you want to see the finger positions for chords... or you can enable desktop mode and just tap the chord and it will show you.

I get that the point of a baby shower is to shower the baby with gifts needless to say. Last weekend I attended a good friend of mines baby shower. She had given us a registry on amazon of stuff she wanted so I bought her baby gift ahead of time and had it delivered straight to her home. I did not want to show up empty handed to the baby shower since we are food friends, so between me and my coworker we decided to make a gift basket for the new parents to be. We put a lot of thought into it because let’s be honest they probably haven’t thought much about themselves since they found out about the baby. As well as how important it is for the parents to feel okay since they are the ones who will primarily taking care of the baby.

Inside the gift basket we added for the mom&dad: soothing eye patches (because she will be having some long nights) , a face mask, a lightly scented candle, nipple cream, nursing leaking pads, bath and body lotions, bubble bath stuff( for adults), mugs, coffee, tea, baby parenting books and a bottle of alcohol for the dad. And as fillers we used a bunch of candy.

Let me tell you they were not expecting to receive a single item for themselves and were frankly really happy and excited for all the items and felt spoiled. They also went on how it was such a unique idea and they would have never thought to bring the parents a gift to a baby shower! So next time you go to a baby shower consider getting something nice and thoughtful for the parents to relax!

You can always tell someone you aren't interested or just ignore them, but that sometimes makes sharks work harder for some reason. If you aren't perceived as someone who can land them a sale, you get completely off the hook.

I've scored graphics cards, speakers, televisions, phones, fans, record players and more by paying attention to what people have ditched on the curb. Usually I give it away to someone who needs it more than I do, but often I've found something so good it's replaced my current belongings.

Saying things like “I’m not interested” or “no thank you” often just push these people to sell even harder to change your mind. Once they find out you aren’t able to say yes because you rent they leave you alone. Works both for door to door solicitors or those people at Costco/Home Depot who try to give a sales pitch.

Long story short, it tears me off when someone ask to my sister when she will have a kid while she's sterile.

That's often very hard and not funny like "Your eggs wont last for ever you know ahah".

It may seem counterintuitive because the latter may be pessimistic or overwhelmed, but personal and secondhand experience has taught me if people never seem flapped or industrious it’s because work (and not doing well in it) doesn’t concern them so you’ll end up doing a really unfair proportion of the work.
