Interesting point of note- "Research strongly suggests that people are more creative when they enjoy privacy and freedom from interruption. And the most spectacularly creative people in many fields are often introverted, according to studies by the psychologists Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi and Gregory Feist. They’re extroverted enough to exchange and advance ideas, but see themselves as independent and individualistic. They’re not joiners by nature."

Just saw your comment +Elsha Kwee! I fully stand by this article. There should definitely be a balance between having individual time and so-called "brainstorming"...both are as equally valuable. But in a supposedly creative field like marketing, I could only hope people appreciate and see the value in having space and time for thinking. Check out the author's website for more of her articles... guarantee you'll find it valuable! http://www.thepowerofintroverts.com/

Your religion isn't based on faith, it's based on geography

This thought has been in the back of my head for a long time. I just have a lot of trouble believing that it just so happens divinity struck people in different areas more. Religion, in my opinion, is based more on societal norms and pressures than by a serious dedication to finding the "truth" or best answer to life's biggest mysteries. There's of course diversity and people who go against the grain, but the graphic accurately describes religious concentrations.

But it's just a thought :) What do you think?

One of the most ridiculous thing I've heard: "If it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down." 

"Shutting the whole thing down"? -- Really? As if to say that all women have an internal manual switch that flips on and off to prevent pregnancy.

Reading this really made my stomach churned. What makes one think this will sit well with people?

Inspiring video. I haven't thought of what I might try, but it's worth a shot!

Do New Year's resolutions sound daunting? Why not try something new just for 30 days and see how you like it? Here's a 3 minute TED video about my 30 day challenges.

Why not give it a shot? It could be something easy like taking a picture a day or going for a walk around the block every day. Pick something you've wanted to try and give it a shot for 30 days! For January, I'm going to try to draw something every day. :)
