Build your career without sacrificing your life.
When I’m travelling, I always enjoy picking up postcards at local shops and sending them back home to my family and friends. They always enjoy receiving beautiful picture sin the mail, but do you know what they enjoy more when I go on long trips? They enjoy seeing my pictures. That’s right, as much as they all like to look at the beautiful landscapes captured on the tiny little cards with the handwritten notes, they enjoy my Facebook posts just as much, or even more, than the postcards that I buy for them. This is because the photos on my social media were taken by me, even if I’m not in the picture…so it feels more personal and less factory-distributed.
Now, thanks to a company called “MyPostcard” you can combine the wonder of sending your friends and family a physical card to receive in the mail and the knowledge of knowing that you were the person behind the camera! MyPostcard prints your photos out as postcards…or greeting cards, or even polaroid pictures! All you have to do is download their app “MyPostcard App” in the iTunes App store or Google Play and watch the magic transform right before your eyes!
So, if you’re planning on going on a trip soon, and you know you’re going to be seeing some beautiful sights, but you don’t know what you can bring back home to your family members, and you’re certain that you don’t want the gift to be too generic, you should give MyPostcard a try! I’m sure your friends and family will love receiving these customized art pieces in the mail every single time you decide to send them!
Teamwork is a wonderful thing, especially on a job site. Cooperation is needed to finish any great project, whether the project in question be a book, a bridge, a wildlife rescue mission, or an air conditioning installation. If you’re reading this, you’ve probably cooperated with someone already today, in order to accomplish a task. Did your co-worker send you a useful email? Did the driver in the lane next to you on the highway avoid ramming into the side of your car on the way to work this morning? Both of these scenarios are examples of teamwork and cooperation. The first example is teamwork on the job site.
Sometimes, we begin to feel a little out of place. Maybe our daily routine just isn’t cutting it anymore, or we feel out of touch from our co-workers. This can slow progress and completely bring creative thinking and problem solving to a stand-still. Luckily for business men and women everywhere, there are ways to feel more in sync with the rest of your crew. There are also ways for a manager or supervisor to bring their teams closer together, if they feel like they’re noticing an unhealthy distance between employees.
One of the most visually appealing ways to accomplish this task of unity is to wear a work uniform. Right now, your company probably already has a dress code, and you may or may not have fond feelings towards it. Either way, you must admit that it saves you the hassle of picking out an outfit every morning, the embarrassment of wearing something you didn’t realize would be inappropriate or quite different from what your co-workers are wearing, and it saves time because no one is stopping to stare at your outfit or accessories throughout the day.
If you’ve looked into team shirts, jerseys, or work shirts at all, you’ve probably come to the conclusion that many printing options are just far too expensive for your company to handle…and if they are affordable, the sizing, color, or stitching might be a little off par, which isn’t acceptable in a professional environment. As a businessperson, you are a walking reflection of the brand in which you work for. If the color scheme or design is too different from that of the company’s style guide, you’re not portraying the company realistically, and although the outfits would be the same, they could be a distraction as a majority, in themselves.
If you’re looking for a company that will get your work shirts right every single time, I’ve got just the place for you to go.

It’s finally February, and the weather is feeling like Spring ((and unusually so)) here in Kentucky. I’ve been itching to get outside and dig in the dirt, even though I know it isn’t gardening season just yet. What I have been able to do is go outside, take a little walk, and enjoy the fresh air around me. Not only is this good for my mood, it’s good for my lungs, my heart, and my New Year’s resolution to LOSE WEIGHT! Yes, I’m going there. Look, I know you’re tired of all the “lose weight fast” articles and the “you need to buy an outrageously overpriced gym membership” hype. That’s why I’m not going to take this article that far. Those people are unrealistic, in my opinion. I know this article isn’t going to motivate you to become a gym rat if you’re currently a couch potato, and it won’t help you lay off the chocolate that you love so much. So, let’s be realistic here. I’m about to name 10 REAL, AFFORDABLE foods that should be on your grocery list every time you shop. You can buy these at your local grocery store, or you can find them at super low prices through the links associated with each category. Either way, if you include these foods in your daily routine, you’re going to see a difference. Oh! Did I mention they’re all really tasty? That’s not a bonus…we all know it’s an essential.

Groundhog Day is a holiday we all know as the deciding day for mother nature. Will there be 6 more weeks of winter, or will spring come early? Of course, most adults look forward to the latter choice, while many children pray for snow days to continue for just a little while longer. However, Groundhog Day has a literary significance as well. On February 02, 1882…approximately 5 years before the first Groundhog Day, Irish novelist, James Joyce was born.
James Joyce is regarded as one of the most important and influential authors of the 20th century. He published many books, just a few which are: Ulysses, Dubliners, Finnegan’s Wake, The Dead, The Cat and the Devil, Grace, A Mother, and The Ondt and the Grasshopper. Some of his more influential and popular quotes include: “Shakespeare is the happy hunting ground of all minds that have lost their balance.”, “Writing in English is the most ingenious torture ever devised for sins committed in previous lives. The English reading public explains the reason why.”, “Christopher Columbus, as everyone knows, is honored by posterity because he was the last to discover America.”, and “Your battles inspired me - not the obvious material battles but those that were fought and won behind your forehead.”.
Some fun facts about James Joyce are as follows: He was born in the same year as the famous author Virginia Wolfe. He was afraid of thunder and lightning. At least one of his literary characters were inspired by his wife. His books are now considered part of the “public domain”. He was born in the Republic of Ireland, but he died in another European country. Last but not least, of course, he was born on Groundhog’s Day, before Groundhog Day was even an official holiday!
If you’re a fan of James Joyce, or you’re looking to read some of his famous works, you can browse through the collection of books and other merchandise at low prices from Amazon, the world’s largest online shopping center, below!
Last month, I suggested that you start reading the “Fablehaven” series by Brandon Mull. If you caught interest in that series, you may still be working on getting caught up, and you may be excited to read the new release that will be available to the public this month! Is so, you can track the progress of the new release here.
If not, don’t worry. Not everyone enjoys young adult fantasy. Some of our more hardcore readers are looking for something a little darker, scarier, more honest, and more real. When I think of horror, I think immediately of Stephen King. No, I’m not going to suggest you read any of his more famous books like “Carrie” or “Cujo”. If you enjoy horror books, you’ve probably already read these classics once or twice. However, I will suggest a lesser known Stephen King novel that is just as genius as all the rest.
“The Bazaar of Bad Dreams” is a collection of short stories, all written by Stephen King. I picked this book up at the library a week ago, and though I haven’t had the time to finish it yet (it’s not exactly the type of book you crack open right before you fall asleep), I have enjoyed every second that I have spent reading it.
I’m certain that you’re familiar with Stephen King and (at least) his popular works, but if for some strange reason you’re not, here is a little synopsis:
“Stephen King is the author of more than 50 books, all of them worldwide bestsellers. His recent work includes Finders Keepers, Revival, Mr. Mercedes, winner of the 2015 Edgar Award for Best Novel, Doctor Sleep, and Under the Dome, now a major TV series on CBS. His novel 11/22/63 was named a top ten book of 2011 by the New York Times Book Review and won the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for Mystery/Thriller. He is the recipient of the 2003 National Book Foundation Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters. He lives in Bangor, Maine with his wife, novelist Tabitha King.
My favorite quote from this book, so far, is: “Human nature has no bottom. It is as deep and mysterious as the mind of God.”. If you’re wondering what this lovely piece of literature entails, look no further. The book review from Good Reads states the following: “There are thrilling connections between stories; themes of morality, the afterlife, guilt, what we would do differently if we could see into the future or correct the mistakes of the past. “Afterlife” is about a man who died of colon cancer and keeps reliving the same life, repeating his mistakes over and over again. Several stories feature characters at the end of life, revisiting their crimes and misdemeanors. Other stories address what happens when someone discovers that he has supernatural powers—the columnist who kills people by writing their obituaries in “Obits;” the old judge in “The Dune” who, as a boy, canoed to a deserted island and saw names written in the sand, the names of people who then died in freak accidents. In “Morality,” King looks at how a marriage and two lives fall apart after the wife and husband enter into what seems, at first, a devil’s pact they can win.
Magnificent, eerie, utterly compelling, these stories comprise one of King’s finest gifts to his constant reader—“I made them especially for you,” says King. “Feel free to examine them, but please be careful. The best of them have teeth.”
