Wow that's a good one.

I'll use that one.

You met five twins?!

I was like...

Somebody in my hall was a quadruple twin.

I've met sextuplets before and I'm like...that doesn't make sense to me.

Oooooh that's where the vegetarian is!

Yeah

Bruh...

There's like a vegan burger

That's pretty cool

Oooh...

Let's just go there tomorrow

And so um the answer is yes and no.

Did you go to the practice rooms last night?

Did you practice last night?

I was so done that I just...

Did your wrist hurt?

My wrist hurt a little bit.

My wrists don't hurt my fingers hurt.

My fingers just hurt.

All the joints..?

Do you have any pain?

Nah Juney's a beast.

Yeah, like my wrists.

No pain it's just like...

My entire face just shut down

I was boutta sleep at the piano.

I wanna sleep on a desk or something or just on the floor but I'm scared...

We should tell him we'd rather practice.

You're allowed to play for a certain time.

Does he have like actual lessons?

I think it's any time; if you need help just go.

I thought it's just chilling...

We're going to do this for a month

Stay tuned.

Bro our wrists are going to hurt so much.

When my right hand bends, my wrist hurts.

You like shift your body to it?

Especially if it's like down there.

If you're down there for a while, though, your whole body is down there for a while.

Ok well his wrist hurts too so....

I'm like sliding the keys right now.

I might just get a slice of pizza to go...you know?

I've eaten straight cantaloupe for the last... three days.

Our RA told us not to eat the fruit because they're sketchy.

I ate that honeydew and it tasted like...not good.

I think they hold onto it for a whole week.

The blueberries are bad too.

Don't touch the fruit.

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.

Disney

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.

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.

-Having struggled with acne prone skin for years, I was cautious to try a new serum on top of the other products I've come to trust.

- 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.

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.

I am not in any way any sort of medical expert. These are just some tricks that work for me and have worked for others who also suffer from anxiety. These may not work for everyone, but I do hope these help some people in their fight against anxiety.

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.

Your Social Activism May Actually Benefit From A Cleansing Social Media Detox

In the craziest year of our lives, sometimes there's value in taking a break.

We are living through, unequivocally, one of the most dangerous, unstable, chaotic periods of any of our lives. From COVID-19 to crises of police brutality to the mass exploitation of the poor by mega-corporations, the world outside seems to be looking more dystopic every day. What can be done about it? For many, activism involves heavily posting on social media to keep others aware. However, this comes with a net negative cost — increased levels of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness about the state of the world. Why might this be? After all, in past eras activists have endured comparable and greater levels of abuse and relentless torment from oppressors. Why, now, are people getting so easily burnt out?
