12 Thoughts You Have As A Garage Saler

Garage sales are simply a necessity in small-town summer life. If you're an avid garage saler, then you've probably had these thoughts before...

1. How much?!

It's a worn-out T-shirt! They want this much for it?! No deal.

2. This cheap?!

Are you kidding me? I'd pay 10 times this in a store! Deal.

3. Where has this been all my life?

You can discover so many gadgets and gizmos you had no idea existed while perusing garage sales! Making my life easier? Yes, please!

4. Why in the world would anybody need this?

There's also those items that you have absolutely no use for... and can't imagine why anybody else would need them, either.

5. This is so old! Eww!

Rusty tools, VHS's, outstretched elastic waistbands. Sooo outdated!

6. This is so old! Awesome!

Records, books, jewelry. Sooo vintage chic!

7. These people are staring me down. Get me out of here!

There are those house owners who watch your every move. You can feel the judgment. Or the people who follow your gaze, read your mind, then proceed to try to erase any doubt in your mind that you should buy those items.

8. Do these people even know I'm here? Hello?

Then there's also those houses where you feel invisible. No "hey there!" or anything. You just awkwardly walk around in silence, feeling much like the distant cousin no one knows what to say to.

9. This smells awful!

You gotta do the sniff-test with some things. And scent can be the deciding factor in many purchases. Been there, sniffed that.

10. This smells so good!

Some people have the most beautiful-smelling laundry detergent. You almost don't want to buy that shirt because you know as soon as you get it to your house, it's going to lose its fragrance... and accumulate piles of dog hair. Sigh.

11. But do I really need it?

You find the most perfect piece at a great price. It's nothing you were exactly looking for, and you're not sure where you'll put it, but you just feel a connection to it. Decisions, decisions.

12. I have been looking all over for this!

This thought is a rare occurrence. Finding something you actually truly need at a garage sale is a once-in-a-lifetime chance! Count yourself extremely blessed if this ever happens to you!

Being a pharmacy technician never held as many risks as it does now. Exposure too hazardous conditions were little to none, and garbing up was only conducted in IV compounding. But, now, in order to give nurses the medications they need to help their patients, they need us, pharmacy technicians.

TikTok was banned by the president, but Instagram is here with its newest feature called Reel. Many of us are still wondering why TikTok was being banned in the first place. Was it all the dangerous TikTok trends? It was because of a security concern, but not in the way you might think.

TikTok is owned by Dancebyte, which is a China-owned company. Basically, just like any other app, TikTok collects the user's data. The main question to ask yourself when investing in any app or marketing tools who will be owning my data? So yes, China currently owns all the TikTok user's data worldwide.

I've always been a huge Disney villain fan — whether it was for their cryptic one-liners, enviable outfits, or sidekick banter. Some of the most iconic lines from cinematic history have been said by the characters we love to hate and occasionally dress up as once a year.

The fear-mongering Gaston I now find hilariously cringe-worthy is now charming and oftentimes considered by fans as rightfully justified in his actions. Die-hard fans of the Disney villain fan club claim alternate egos in their favorite evil characters, adopting their hilarious witticisms into everyday life.

I have definitely had my fair share of breakups. I broke up with my high school sweetheart my second semester of college (he was cheating on me), I had a breakup with another guy I thought I was going to marry, and others in between. Regardless of whether you're the one doing the dumping or being dumped, breakups can HURT.

Social media is something many of us have been addicted to (whether we want to believe it or not) since the moment we got it. I remember getting Facebook at 10. Instantly I was hooked. I loved being able to share my life with people, a little too much in my opinion, and I loved being able to see how/what other people were doing all the time.

- I have extremely sensitive skin, which is why I have always resorted to a plant-based organic beauty line such as Radha Beauty.

- Radha Beauty won me over years ago when I was looking for organic skincare brands.

- I was so excited to see they launched a new line incorporating USDA organic rosehip oil, so when their PR team sent me some, I could not have been more thrilled.

- After a week of using the products, my face felt as smooth as a baby's, looked more glowy than ever, and even cured some of my summer sunburn.

Radha Beauty isn't just a best-selling beauty brand on Amazon — it's a USDA-certified organic beauty brand I live by, and anyone who knows me knows I am all about holistic wellness.

Typically, it only takes three days for me to tell if a skin product is working or not because I have extremely sensitive skin. It's also why I have always stuck by plant-based organic beauty lines such as Radha Beauty.

5 Reasons To Put The Damn Mask On, And Stop Fussing With It

COVID-19 is real people, do your part to protect yourself and others.

Ilana Stein

With the ever-changing reality of our world due to COVID-19, there has been one constant throughout these past unforeseen months, masks. Ever since coronavirus hit the ground running in the US, the CDC has been recommending social distancing and mask-wearing to stop the rapid spread.

I've been an athlete my entire life. I love movement and I've been jumping, kicking, swimming, dancing, throwing, you name it since I was in diapers. I'm also pretty competitive and probably went through a few sore loser phases. What can I say? I like to win, and losing can sometimes feel like I've failed. Especially, when your competitor is your best friend or someone that you worked all year long to defeat.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.
