In books, you can learn from experience and emphasize something important for yourself.

Books: Power for students

Strange, but there are not so many who read books. For those who consider books to be the main source of knowledge, this is really strange. We will not take adults over 30. They do not have time for this. How they think. Let's talk about young people, let's call them students.

Students have free time. Everything fills it with something. Some are frankly bored, some watch TV and play games, and some constantly roam the streets. Why doesn't anyone sit in a chair with a smart book instead and try to change their life?
In my opinion, there are two reasons. Fear, insecurity, or constant procrastination. The student does not mind reading, but something stops him. Some kind of barrier. Or the well-known procrastination.The young man does not understand why reads books at all. What's the point of this?

Surely there are other reasons. I only brought two. In the first case, you need to overcome yourself. Take and start. And then get involved. The second is to understand that turning pages and peering at letters is extremely useful. There are many reasons to read. Hopefully, more than not read. We are talking about non-fiction literature, not fiction books. The latter is read mainly for entertainment.

I will tell you one reason why you should start reading. This reason is directly related to the idea of my blog.
By reading, you develop. From books you get information that can affect you, thereby changing your life for the better. This is self-development, and as for me, in its best form. There is nothing left. Understand that reading books affects life in general. positive and gradual. Don't believe? Try it!

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

Ross Woodhall

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
