Everyone should have the experience to go whale watching at least once in their lifetime, preferably during their teenage years or older; this will be more worthwhile to completely understand the marine facts that are taught among the boat. Going as children or bringing children along is also an extremely fun time; their amazement at the sight of marine life is indescribable. All whale species will not be seen and perhaps none will be seen, but with the intelligent of the captain, interns, and marine biologists on board, they’ll know the prime spots to explore during that specific time of year and specific time of day, which will hopefully lead you to some incredible marine sightings, just like it did for me.

Whether you see the whales you were expecting to see, dolphins, differing species of fish, or maybe something greater that you were not expecting overall, it is a wonderful experience that everyone should try out. There are many places to go whale watching and each is just as enjoyable as the next. The long and enjoyable boat ride out to the midst of the ocean is only the beginning. When you look around, no more land is seen and there’s absolutely no knowing of what is swimming under you in the depths of the ocean or what may be happening down there.

Once you’ve reached the few destinations you’ll be searching for whales at, the facts will begin. The marine biologists on board will keep you updated on what type of whales you are watching and more facts will fill your mind about their daily living styles. Perhaps you will learn about their migration patterns, family life, what they do for fun, what they eat, where they are most successful in their eating habits, friendships, and much more. This is a trip that will last a few hours and you will not want to return back to shore once you’re out there. Being able to look off into the distance and only see the ocean, which looks like it’s never-ending, is a sight that cannot be described and can only be experienced. There are an enormous number of species in the ocean that we are unaware of and every single day, more is learned. It’s absolutely astounding to know there’s more out there but to not know exactly what it is.

Whale watching was a breathtaking experience that everyone needs to take a chance to do. It may change your perspective of the ocean and may even convince you to want to help change how the ocean is treated and what it is doing to the species that live in it.

“The ocean is Earth’s life support.”

“Everyone, everywhere depends on a healthy sea.”

“But the ocean is in trouble…What happens if we do nothing?”

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

- Though as a little girl, I had the silkiest, softest hair that would get compliments everywhere I went, since I turned about thirteen I've since had coarse, dry hair no amount of deep conditioning masks or sulfate-free shampoo could fix.

- I started using the Raincry's Condition Boar Bristle Brush several months ago, and while I noticed that my hair had been softer, silkier, and shinier than it had ever been, I didn't make the connection because I never thought a simple hairbrush could make any difference in my hair texture.

- I will be the first to admit that I thought it was ridiculous to spend nearly a hundred dollars on a hairbrush, but this one eliminates the need for me to use any heat tools or styling products on it.

- I put some oil or a serum in my hair when it's wet, brush my hair with the boar bristle brush once it's dry, and end up with the lowest maintenance, shiniest hair I've had since I was 8 years old.

Everything You Need To Know About Macronutrients, Because A Diet Should Be More Than Calories

Pay attention to what you're eating, not just how much you're eating.

Plenty of people are familiar with the "calories in, calories out" (CICO) method of dieting which can be used for losing, gaining, or maintaining weight. This method relies on calculating a person's total daily energy expenditure (TDEE) to ensure that they are not overeating or undereating to achieve their desired weight. TDEE considers a person's height, weight, age, gender, and level of activity to determine what their caloric intake should be — some calculators can factor in body fat percentage as well. When I used a TDEE calculator online, it said that my TDEE would be 1,990 calories if I was trying to maintain my weight, but are all calories created equal? I'd argue that they're not.

It might seem obvious to some of you that 1,990 calories of macaroni and cheese are not healthy at all compared to 1,990 calories of varied foods (fruit, veggies, meat, bread, etc.).

Just Because You're Asked To Be In A Wedding, Doesn't Always Mean You Should Say Yes

If you can't invest time, money, and YOURSELF, maybe say no to the offer for the bride's sake!

Being in a wedding is a really big commitment. I personally think if you've never been in one before, you don't understand the time, money, and energy that goes into being a part of it.

I'll admit it, when I first met you, I wasn't sure how well things were going to work out. Although I didn't know you that well at the time, we seemed to be opposites in almost every way. You were cool, edgy, and laid-back, and I was more awkward, goofy, and anxious.
