9 Tips to Help You Survive Nursing School as a Christian and a Parent

Nurses follow Christ’s call to care for one another. While it is possible to demonstrate God’s love in a wide variety of professions, there are few career paths that demonstrate this concept as much as nursing.

Some people will be drawn to this profession from a young age, whereas others may commit to their mission later in life.  If you are a pa...

David Lynch Explains How Simple Daily Habits Enhance His Creativity

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wyVPEDS2VGk At first glance, Madame Bovary and Blue Velvet would seem to have little in common, as would their creators. But the artistic life Gustave Flaubert led and the one David Lynch now leads share a basic precept: “Be regular and orderly in your life,” as the former once put it, “so that you may be violent and original in your work.” Lynch has spoken about his ways as an artistic creature of habit many times over the years, as demonstrated by the in...

Es begann mit Love Bombing und endete mit Missbrauch

Is the Republican Brand Dying?

There’s a lot of talk about how supporting Trump may take down the Republican party. Perhaps that remains to be seen, but I wanted to do a little test within my own mind to see what I associate to each of these terms today, at least from a branding perspective. I was curious how the past four years may have influenced what I associate with the word Republican. Before Trump came onto the political scene, I tended to regard Republicans as mostly harmless but also patriotic, religious, and moral...

Sensitivity to Lying

Some people have a high tolerance for lying and falsehood. They can hang out around others who frequently share false information, deliberately or from ignorance, and it doesn’t seem to bother them. Either they don’t notice the falsehoods, or they aren’t much affected when they do notice. I’m not one of those people. I used to be though. When I was younger I could hang around people who spewed nonsense left and right and be okay with it. That’s basically how I grew up, being taught lots of fa...

8 Free Alternatives for Stuff That Cost Most People Money

I went to get the flu shot the other day, a trip I make once a year to keep not just me but those around me safer. And oh man I felt so sluggish afterward!

Luckily, I’m back to 100% now and everything seems to be a-ok. This year, we changed where we got the flu shot. We found out that our county’s health agen...
