We all have had that first love…or maybe not a first love but rather “the one that got away”…you may want to find that person and see what could be!
Is it a good idea to try to find that person and possibly rekindle the flame? Yikes the thought is terrifying to me!
Now you would like to thing finding that person would result in a fairytale ending where you two run towards each other on a beach…in slow motion of course!
But chances are that person is settled down with someone or not really interested in you being a part of their lives. OUCH.
Lets take it one step further…what if all of that was on TV for everyone to see!?
You’re in luck! There is now a TV show called, ‘Find My First Love’! The show follows “a new man or woman who is determined to find a lost love in hopes of rekindling a former flame or finally getting closure after years of pining.”
The show is hosted by British TV personality Cherry Healy and she tells The Daily Mail, “We've had some amazing outcomes - some amazingly happy endings, Some are like a fairy tale - and some are not so much.”
I have to admit I’m very intrigued about this show!
As far as my ‘first love’ goes, I’m not sure I’d want to reconnect with him again. Last I heard, he got his tongue pierced and got all ‘jersey shore’ in college. I’m seriously hoping he’s outgrown that phase in life.

Do you have a preferred side when taking a picture? Ladies, we probably all do.
I prefer my left side…I think because of the way my hair parts, the left has become my predominant side.
The Daily Mail reports that, “Research has revealed that nearly half of women have a preferred half of their face — and it’s their right. A recent survey found they felt so strongly about not showing their ‘bad side’ that they panicked when a photograph was taken from the left.”
We prefer one side to the other because our faces are asymmetrical; each side of our face is different.
According to the research, your handiness plays a big part in which side you prefer for pictures. “Right-handedness explains a lot, too. Ninety per cent of the world’s population is right-handed, affecting everything from facial muscles to our ability to apply cosmetics better on one side of the face.”
The research even suggests that our preferred side can be passed down from our parents since we learn our facial expressions from them.
Who knew our “good side” was so scientific!!!
I’m not the nicest person when I’m HANGRY.
What is HANGRY?
It’s when someone is angry due to hunger. HANGRY.
I don’t know why at the age of 25 I get angry and aggressive when I’m hungry…and I cannot control it! It’s like all of a sudden I turn in to the hulk, but without turning green.
It’s never good to experience people who are hangry…if you come across a hangry person…RUN…RUN LIKE THE WIND!
What makes us angry when we are hungry?
Dr. Brad Bushman, a professor at The Ohio State University, explains that, “the pre-frontal cortex of the brain is the part that is responsible for self-control — and to demonstrate self-control, it requires energy.”
So without the energy from food…there is no way you can practice self control…so when someone says “Hey, how is your day?” you will probably bit their head off with a not so nice response!
I am guilty of being HANGRY a time or two…okay probably more than a time or two.
I always feel bad when my hangry-ness passes…I’ve said, “I’m sorry for what I said when I was hangry!” to Drew on more occasions than I can count ha!
It’s important to try to prevent yourself from becoming hangry…look, the cashier at Target is not out to get you and there is no reason to be mean to her…you just need to make sure you have access to some snacks throughout the day.
Being hangry is part of life…sometimes we are too busy to eat, just try to not be a total jerk while hangry!
I love being barefoot. If I don’t have to wear shoes, I won’t. I really like kicking my shoes off at work sometimes, under my desk where no one sees of course.
I wish it were socially acceptable to walk around the office barefoot!
Maybe more businesses will be implementing the bare foot workday!!! It could be good for productivity!
Kicking my shoes off right now!!
“German ergonomics researcher Dr. Dieter Breithecker explains a tie between going barefoot and lower stress: "Putting the soles of your feet in contact with all the normal sensations helps to relieve internal tension and reduce stress."
“Barefoot workers will also have healthier feet. If an employee can avoid sticking their feet in cramped, uncomfortable shoes for eight hours or more each day, they will be far less likely to deal with common shoe-caused afflictions that remove workers from the job.”
See it would be greatly beneficial to work in bare feet!
Here is why this won’t work.
It will look strange so have all of your employees in bare feet…and feet are actually gross to look at. Not everyone has pretty feet…and often then stink. So it might actually be harder to focus on your work when you can smell someone’s stinky ugly feet!
Plus your outfit would look incomplete.

After a first date, it’s hard to tell whether or not there will be a second date. It’s a terrifying thought to try to figure it out…does he like me? Does he want a second date? Will he ask me out again?
It’s stressful for guys too…they worry about whether the girl will want a second date too!
Well a Canadian boy named Tristan does not have to worry about securing a second date…he’s pretty much got it in the bag. He did save a man’s life after all.
Tristan was on his way home from a first date when he and his lovely lady came across a car that had smashed in to the side of a building.
So Tristan jumped out of his car and proceeded to help the driver out of the car. The driver Steve, 65, suffered a medical problem, which caused him to crash his vehicle.
Just in time too! Fire quickly engulfed the vehicle after Steve was pulled to safety!
That clearly secured a second date with his now girlfriend…obviously…you’re not going to not go on a second date with a hero!
Washing your hair is pretty basic ritual…I’m sure you’ve never even thought twice about it. I certainly haven’t…lather, rinse, and repeat right?
Ugh, changing a 25-year habit is going to be tough!
The Daily Mail suggests only shampooing your scalp, not the ends of your hair…when you rinse the shampoo it will cleanse the ends of your hair, which also helps prevent damage to the ends! Good to know!
If you scrub your scalp with a lot of pressure you could be causing your hair to become greasier! Nobody wants that, so ease off the pressure when scrubbing!
“Stylists also say it's imperative to rinse your hair for twice the amount of time as lathering on product and never use hot water.'The hot water activates the sebaceous gland which secretes oil and can leave hair greasy soon after washing. Use warm, tepid water for ultra clean hair and to extend the life of your blow dry.'”
No hot water? That’s not going to work for me…I like to turn the water as hot as it goes and then turn it back slightly!
So once you’ve corrected the way you wash your hair, I should also mention that you shouldn’t towel dry your hair either! This is because,“this creates friction and can damage the cuticle leaving hair dull and lifeless, blot dry instead to prevent damage,'”
You should just dab your hair with the towel. Okay there are way too many rules now!
Honestly, I’m going to just stick with my system of the past 25 years. It’s been working just fine for me.
