If you don't already know, CNA life can have its best and its worst times. We should probably be called "Bed, Bath, and Way Beyond". And, in case you aren't a CNA and you're not aware, CNA's are more than glorified ass-wipers. Nonetheless, we encounter a lot of stuff during our shifts. Here is the daily life of a CNA as told by vine star and son of the internet, Gavin Thomas.

1. When your alarm goes off and you're debating on whether or not the paycheck is actually worth it

... But you usually get up and get ready anyway.

1. When a patient refuses a bath all week long and they tell their family you refused to give them a bath

The classic "Are you kidding?" face.

2. When you're on break and you hear 10 different call lights going off and people yelling

And you take your time clocking back in.

3. When you've been running around for hours and haven't had time to pee or sit down for a break and you look at the clock and see you've only been clocked in for an hour

And then someone has the audacity to ask if you're fine.

4. When you try to keep your cool after you answer a call light, leave the room, and the same patient turns their light back on again .2 seconds later

In your head, you're thinking, "I JUST LEFT YOUR ROOM. WHAT COULD YOU POSSIBLY NEED?"

5. When you finally sit down to chart only to get interrupted

https://twitter.com/gavinmiIa/status/933496446665527296

... followed by an internal (and sometimes external) scream.

6. When someone who isn't in the medical field swears that your job is easy

Sure, Jan.

8. When you finish giving report and you're going to clock out

http://www.twipu.com/gavinmemes/tweet/887535654925733889

You don't even say goodbye to anyone, you just RUN.

9. When you finally get home after a long shift and this is how you end up in bed

Usually with something to eat or drink while watching Netflix.

According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

Were all teenagers and twenty-somethings bingeing the latest "To All The Boys: Always and Forever" last night with all of their friends on their basement TV? Nope? Just me? Oh, how I doubt that.

I have been excited for this movie ever since I saw the NYC skyline in the trailer that was released earlier this year. I'm a sucker for any movie or TV show that takes place in the Big Apple.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded. I want to encourage everyone to look at something with an unbiased and unfazed point of view. I oftentimes struggle with this myself.
