I Was Going to Write About the CT Slide, but…

I was going to write about the CT slide but then I remembered that people on the internet aren't always the smartest.

I Was Going to Write About the CT Slide, but…

Some of you may know that the Connecticut Slide is one of my favorite driving moves to pull off. Some of you may not. Some of you may be wondering what a CT slide even is.

Well, I'm not telling you.

I can't. It sounds stupid, but what if one of you readers goes and tries this in a Ram Van or something. Imagine the lives being put in danger. I can't risk that as inventor of the CT slide move. It would be irresponsible on my part. Sometimes, the best inventions are left uninvented.

Please tell you? I'm sorry, I just can't. No matter how much you pry at me I'll never let the secret out. It's for the Lads only. If you see someone pulling off a CT slide on the road (that is, if you're lucky enough to know what it even is) then know it's one of the Lads. I'm really sorry, but I just cannot let the CT slide secret out. Roads would be chaos if I did that.

Pretty please with a cherry on top?

This is assuming two things; one, that I like cherries, and you would be correct, so good for you. Secondly, you're assuming that I like cherries on top, which isn't always true. Cherries are good in any orientation; on top, bottom, right, left, upside down, right side up, you name it. I like cherries no matter where they are. In fact, I like cherries so much that I eat them right out of the container without even washing them. I'll pay the price for that later, but for now I'm content.

Pretty please with a cherry on top?

You are a fool. What would make you think bolding would convince me otherwise? I already mentioned that I like my cherries irrespective of their orientation on food or otherwise; why would bolding the word "top" change any of that? I can't believe you thought that would even work. Shame on you.
Pretty pretty please? No. Stop saying pretty please. Also, saying pretty twice makes me want to tell you even less, and that"s if I were to tell you, which I am most definitely not going to do after that last attempt. If you're going to beg me to tell you, at least get a little more creative.

I'll give you twenty bucks!

Really? Bribery, I see. It's not going to work, especially because I already have twenty dollars on me right now, so why would I need another twenty? I never need to use cash on campus, and I'm actually budgeting right now, so I won't need to use cash at all. Nice try, I'll give you creativity on that one. But it's still a no.

Twenty bucks and this MetroCard I found that expires in a month.

You've got to be kidding me. If I didn't accept your twenty dollars straight up, why would I do it for a MetroCard, too? Expires in a month? Come on. You can do better than that. That's insulting. In fact I think I saw you pick up that MetroCard on the ground right outside of campus. No, I don't need it for the bus. I never take the bus. Personal preference; and you still don't get the secret.

I give up.

Finally! You have accepted the fact that I will never tell you about the Connecticut Slide. This is something you need to come to terms with and accept. Now that you are doing so, I have a newfound respect for you. If I have another secret in the future, I am definitely willing to hear out your proposals in an effort to get me to tell you. Good day to you.

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

Constantly introducing young children to the magical works of nature will further increase the willingness to engage in playful activities as well as broaden their interactions with their peers


Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! 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.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

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.

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)

Paramount Pictures

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.
