Lindsay is a stay at home mom and wife living in New Jersey. She loves all things strange, quirky, and spiritual in nature. With a passion for reading, writing, and music, she tries every day to become a better person.

Being a mother is one of the most challenging jobs in the world. Like the video says, you never get breaks, you work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and you don’t get lunch breaks. Oh yeah, and you don’t get paid. Your mom loves you more than anything in the world, and she loves you to the best of her ability. She changed your diapers, stayed up with you while you were sick and nursed you back to health. She may have worked, and was exhausted atRead More
For some people, it’s easy to get caught up in the “people pleasing” mode where all they want to do is make everyone happy. Any form of rejection can send them straight to tears. This seems especially true when you’re younger and trying to figure out what you stand for and who you are. It is sometimes a difficult challenge to stand out and let your voice be heard. Humans are an instinctively social species. Our distant ancestors relied on one another for survival, so it is completely natural to wantRead More
library of old books
There have been many people throughout the years whose stories have lined the pages of our history books and become famous for their achievements, their bravery, and even their infamy. Because of their incredible accolades, here is a list of the 8 most badass people from history who will-and rightfully so-be remembered for years to come. 8. Hedy Lamarr A stunningly gorgeous Austrian actress and inventor born in 1914, Hedy Lamarr joined forces with co-inventor George Antheil, where together they laid the foundation for today’s Wifi, GPS, and Bluetooth wirelessRead More
This bizarre story took place at the turn of the 20th century. A prisoner by the name of Will West arrived at the United States Penitentiary in Leavenworth, Kansas in 1903. After seeing his mug shots, the prison clerk took one look at the photos and insisted she had seen him before. Mr. West explained he had never been to Leavenworth, and that she was mistaken. The clerk, convinced that she was correct, collected Mr. West’s Bertillon measurements (the identification method used to identify prisoners up until this case) and dug through the archivesRead More

Is Community College Right for You?

After graduating from high school, many kids decide to go off to college and further their education. At 17 or 18 years old, this can be overwhelming. Four year universities are undoubtedly very expensive, and unless you have a scholarship, going to a private or state school can put a very large hole in your pocket. Furthermore, if you go to college right after high school, the inordinate amount of majors to choose from is a frightening thing to take on. At such a young age, it’s almost unfair toRead More

Just think about it for a moment. You’re having a really bad week. Your boyfriend broke up with you, your check engine light keeps coming on and you have to bring it to the shop, AGAIN. You woke up on time (finally) but find you’re out of coffee and you want to punch yourself for forgetting to buy some the day before. Your coworker got the promotion at work that you thought you had in the bag. Oh, and you forgot to pay your phone bill so now you’re goingRead More

Have Near Death Experiences Been Debunked?

People from all over the world, from all different races, genders, and ages, have experienced near death experiences for thousands of years. Still, no one really knows what they are, how they happen, or why. One scientist claims that it is only the brain playing tricks on us when we are under emotional or physical duress, but is that really the answer? Near death experiences are pretty impossible to study scientifically. Scientists are trying to find a way to study the brain during a NDE. However, when someone is havingRead More

Depression Will Not Conquer You

No one is perfect, and no one’s life is perfect. We all have those inner struggles to deal with, and those annoying family members that aren’t going away. And things happen, we get strokes of bad luck, and it puts us in a funk. But for some, getting depressed is serious business. And when you’re depressed it feels like you’re never going to be happy again. You start questioning your self worth, and it’s easy to spiral downward into this deep, dark, and very scary place. And as someone whoRead More
The world we live in today is definitely not the same world as it was 50 years ago. Everything is based on technology and it seems that the art of human interaction and conversation is quickly becoming a thing of the past. Have we reached a point of no return? What else is there to be invented and discovered that will further pull us away from one another? In our generation, Gen Y, technology really took off and started its journey to become what it is today. Depending on whatRead More
