Rock, Paper… WHAT? Oh, That American Culture!

Have you ever played rock, paper, scissors? If you were born in America, you know what I am talking about.

What a Day!

What a Day!

Photo credit: Hannah Carmichael Making the most of your time I’d like to present two main questions in this post: How do you spend an average day, and how should you spend an average day? Everyone knows there are twenty-four hours in a day, but what do you do, and what can you do, with those twenty-four hours?
