Another Amazing Idea of (Not) Mine: Read 10% of a Book Everyday

Another amazing idea of (not) mine! I discovered this on the internet and tried it out briefly, and I want to share it with you all.

This Thought Catalog article by Sam Thomas Davies advised simply:

Read 10% of a book everyday.

This is a very good idea. Think about how productive you might become!

Says Davies,

…if you’re an artist, an entrepreneur or any kind of a creative for that matter, you’ll understand how important reading is as a daily habit. Reading is learning and if you’re not learning, you’re not improving in your craft.

Books are awesome, and even though I had tons of free time this summer, reading still hasn’t come very easily back to me. This rule slowly eases me back into the cycle. Continue reading

20 Ways To Deal With People Who Annoy The Crap Out Of You

Thought Catalog

1. Realize that annoying people are inevitable. You can’t always walk away. It’s not always a matter of simply associating with different people. More importantly, we’re not built to be inclined to like everything about everyone, and vice versa. But do understand that continuing to be passive and let yourself be repeatedly filled with rage will only harm your own life and well-being.

2. Stop spiraling. When someone is really getting under your skin, we have a tendency to think extensively about why that person is doing so. You think of all the ways they are inconveniencing you, how annoying they are and you’re just waiting for them to do the next annoying thing that will throw you over the edge and when they finally do, you’re like, aha, I told myself so.

Well I believe this is the first reblog of mine. I think these are values that we’ve all subconsciously realized to be absolutely, utterly beautiful.

These qualities demonstrate selflessness and a general understanding of world, and life. While no one is ever perfect, someone to comprehends how to better their personality and their relationships with other people always has a certain sense of maturity and placidity sequestered to their personality.

Top 7 Ways to Get Writing Inspiration

It’s not that I don’t love writing, because believe me, I do. It’s just that some days I come home absolutely deflated, and not in the mood to write. So I turn to my inspirational muses (in no particular order).

  1. Thought Catalog

I remember about a year ago, before I’d even considered starting a personal blog, that I found an extremely thought-provoking post from Thought Catalog. It was about snuggling. The reason why it stuck with me is because it was very descriptive. I found myself looking through my internet history trying to find it a couple of months later, for motivation to write a descriptive paper in English class. And I looked back again right before I wrote my first post for the blog. Thought Catalog was the first blog I ever followed, and the sheer variety of topics that it blogs about astounds me. Of course, it’s made up of a diversity of writers, but that just means that there’s a section for every sort of reader. I find myself looking a lot to this blog when I’m looking for topics to write about, and styles to adapt and take notice of. Its minimalist design and breadth of articles makes it my go-to source for inspiration. Continue reading
