"Buy a walker or cane. It'll pay for itself in time saved."

Throughout our entire lives, we've been exposed to many life hacks to get us through tough times. Whether it's using extra containers for pasta or creating emails to get a 50 percent discount on online purchases at Walmart, these are the hacks that keep on giving. These next 10 hacks are even better than the ones I mentioned. However, be careful what you wish for.

1. Want to cut the line?

Don't like waiting in lines at government and other buildings? There's usually a quicker line for disabled people. Buy a walker or cane. It'll pay for itself in time saved.

2. Want some free merch for your dog?

Don't waste money on dog toys or leashes, just take them from the lost and found at dog parks.

3. Want to go to a concert for free?

Get an orange construction vest and a hard hat, walk into the construction/staff entrance. Enjoy the show.

4. Want more space on a busy train?

Start praying loudly to Allah. You'll probably get the entire carriage to yourself.

5. Want more people reading your emails?

If someone hits the unsubscribe button on your company's marketing emails, send them even more. That person is actually reading them.

6. Want to see a couple movies for the price of one?

Buy a movie ticket, but plan out the theater's schedule so you can see multiple movies throughout the day, back-to-back.

7. Want half-priced groceries?

Live somewhere Amazon Prime Now is offered? Order groceries 50 percent off for life by making a new account every order.

8. Want a cheaper mattress?

Buy an online mattress from Casper etc. Return it. It will get picked up by a local charity like Goodwill or Salvation Army and you can pick it up at their store for a fraction of the price.

9. Want some free half and half or milk?

When ordering coffee at Starbucks, say, "Double cupped and with a sleeve," then go to the condiment bar and fill one of your cups with half and half or milk.

10. Want a free coffee?

Grab an unfinished drink that someone has left behind, walk up to the barista and ask them if they can heat it up for you. They will just offer to make you a new coffee.

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.

October Is Overrated, Let's Just Accept This Fact

I have never liked the month of October. I like the fall weather and the beginning of wearing sweaters in the crisp fall air, but I never associated this with the month of October.

This probably sounds like the most self-absorbed, egotistical, and frankly downright irritating white-girl problem... but there's more to this I promise.

The Mystery Of The Gospel

Also entitled, "The Day I Stopped Believing In God"

I had just walked across the street from the soccer field back to the school. I turned around and saw the cars rushing, passing each other, going fast over the crosswalk where I had been moments earlier. “It would be so easy to jump in front of one of them,” I thought, looking at the cars. “I could jump, and this life that I’m stuck in would be over.”
