How-to’s of Beauty or Beauty Education

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , ,

Sometimes being fit and beautiful is something that may seem impossible to achieve when actually all you need to do is think everything through and stick to the plan. You need to have ‘beauty education’ if you will.

It is: how to choose fashionable outfit that looks pretty and hides shortcomings. How to keep eating cakes and stay thin, in other words: how to be slim without major efforts.

Let’s start with what you should eat, or how you should eat. Although, actually, it is all about WHEN you should eat. We all know that a human body has its biorhythm and we should always remember about it and take it into account. This is why there is time for abstinence, there is time for salads and fruit and… there is time for cakes too 😉

Famous Gaming Scandals

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Gaming industry is one of the most prosperous industries in the modern world. There is no wonder that the companies want to earn more money using the popularity of the computer games, and sometimes they may perform illegal actions in pursuit of benefit. Some examples of their unlawful behavior were discovered and led to great scandals in the society.

One of the most famous gaming scandals is connected with Rockstar Games Company which created the Grand Theft Auto series. Everything is all right with the game except the fact that a secret mini-game was planted by the developers in the game “GTA: San Andreas”. If you think that it is not a big deal if a company has decided to add a bonus to their product, I want to disagree and inform you that this game called “Hot Coffee” had a strong sexual subtext. The company tried to convince the society that the hackers are to blame for this abusive addition, but the evidence was found that the hackers had nothing to do with this affair. Finally, the game received 18+ classifications and was even forbidden in Australia as this country does not use mature rating for the computer games.

Play the Movies!

I must admit that I am far from computer gaming. So far that this distance can not be measured by words or any other means of description. However, recently the situation has changes as I have discovered a type of games which seem to be suitable for me – games based on movies. I am a great fan of cinematographic art and when a good movie ends I feel a little sad like the part of my life have ended with the final titers. But the games developing the idea of the film is an excellent way to return to your favorite story and even become a part of it since you are playing the role of one of the characters. Here is the list of film-based games I recommend you to play, even if you are not much of a gamer, like me.

1. Spider Man 2. This game was released in 2004. Of course, there were games about superheroes before this release, but this particular game reflects the feeling of being a superhero better than any other game of this type. The creators brought realism to this story. While playing you really feel that you have super power to save New York from evil. The graphics is quite simple; it is a plot and the resemblance with the original movie which make this game worth playing.

The Art of Being Alone

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , ,

As long as I remember myself, I have never been alone. In childhood I was surrounded with my family, school friends and a merry company of my elder sister. Then I moved to another city to study in the university and started to rent a flat together with my best friend. In a short time a new company of fellow students formed around me. After graduating I left for a bigger city to work, and did it together with my boyfriend this time. We lived together for a long while but then one wonderful (or may be miserable) day I understood that he is just not what I need and decided to break up with him. I did not realize the consequences of this decision before it came the morning when I found myself alone.

Day no.1. This day became the saddest one. There was nobody to wake me up in the morning, nobody to fight with for going to the shower first, nobody to cook breakfast or being fed with a burnt omelet prepared by me. The day at work was the same as usual, but the evening turned into something special. I realized that I have only a few friends in this city, that I spent all my spare time with my boyfriend, that I forgot all my hobbies and everything people can do being on their own. I returned home, watched some soap movie, and discovered that again there is nobody to discuss it with and went to bed.

6 ancient kinds of sport

First of all, I’m sure that most people in this broad and seducing web are sports fan. When in the morning we read the newspaper – we look for the sports results. When we go to some news site – we are sure to have a look at the sports page. But have you ever thought of what was before we got the whole sporting world as we have it now?

Actually, I got interested in the prehistory of modern kinds of sport and found some deliciously interesting and at some points even extreme sports of our ancient predecessors.

Pitz.

This game originally appeared in ancient Mexico. In some sources it’s defined as mesoamerican game with the ball; in general it resembled modern volleyball (though the rules of this entertaining event are still quite vague) and the ball itself weighed about 4 kilos being made of a kind of rubber.

My First Experience in Riding a Motorcycle

Tags

First of all, let me assure you that I am not a huge biker with beard, leather jacket and immense boots. Just imagine the typical biker you often see on the streets of your city with all these attributes. Have you imagined him already? Okay, the point it, he does not look like me at all. I just like speed and adrenaline rushing through my blood. The sense of riding a bike is similar to the one you experience when flying. Nothing else can give you such emotions. So, if you are adrenaline-addicted you have no choice other than learn to drive and buy your own motorcycle.

My first step was to find proper driving school in the Internet. I studied the reviews carefully, but as I was completely unacquainted with technical issues I could not decide which school was the best and followed my favorite method which is called – put-your-finger-on-the-random-line.

College Student Tips: How To Survive In The Dorm

Tags

, , , , ,

The memories about college dorm life are polarized between two diametrically opposing groups: some people say it was the best time in their lives; others say it was a nightmare and prefer to bury these memories deep inside their hearts. If you are a freshman and don’t want to belong to the Group #2, check a couple of easy tips for how to survive in the dorm and get the best of your college years.

Get Along With Your Roommate

That’s absolutely crucial. Dorm life is all about compromising and tolerance, so make sure you act nice and friendly from the very first day. You have to put up with your neighbors even if they are complete jerks. Of course you don’t have to stay silent with your face bent to the earth without daring to lift your head and object when the dude you have to share your living space with wipes his boogers on the furniture or farts in the middle of the conversation. Just try to ignore your roommate’s minor shortcomings and nasty habits and remember that you have your own ones.

Man’s whims

Tags

The flow of time puts everything on its place. It had been decided long before the current age that men are strong and defending. They solve problems and take all the responsibilities for their families. But nevertheless, being so self-confident and stable, men, as any other human-beings, have the right for their own whims. So, let’s see what we have on the list of typical man’s follies;)

Tasty food. This is considered to be the main whim of our strong and brave. No matter what they say – they all love tasty food. The best woman for them is the one who can cook some interesting dishes and feed his appetite) But note, there’s no man who adores diet stuff. So, all those “green” salads and meat substitutes are not for them. All the food must be rich and nourishing.

Arrival to Maine

Dear Diary,

Today is my first day in this small town and am going to spend here the whole summer. The only thing that makes me feel good about this is that I am going to see my cousin Lesley (I haven’t seen here since the summer after the 7th grade) we were inseparable; I do hope we can recreate the bond.

Actually spending summer here wasn’t my first choice. It’s just that I am… grounded. I realize I am a little too mature for that (I am 21) but I still depend on my parents. So… I am going to get my first job. I feel a little weird about that since I’ve never worked before. It is a resort city and here must be a lot of places where I can work. Now I am at my aunt’s and on my way over here I saw a few restaurants that are hiring. I am thinking hostess. My mom wants me to work in the amusement park as a game attendant (she says it’ll help me to learn how to communicate with people, can you believe that?!) but it really freaks me out: a bunch of children running all over the park, a lot of noises and customers. I’ve seen people work in games, it is horrible! I remember once I watched that girl in a balloon-dart game, it was busy, she was a mess: trying to blow the balloons, hang them, take the money from customers and give them change. Meanwhile children were throwing darts trying to pop the balloons! I mean come on! It is dangerous.
