Here Are the Kardashian Photos You’ve NEVER Seen

Feb 4, 2016 By Abby Heugel 0

Considering the Kardashian family circus that is plastered everywhere on reality TV, magazines, and the Internet, it’s sometimes hard to remember that they are actual people and an actual family.

Yes, they’re, shall we say, different, and it’s still unclear exactly why most of them are even famous. But that’s society and, the fact is, they’re not going away. We’ve tried. They’re still here.

But before they were here, they were in pictures from decades ago that portray a slightly more normal view of life inside their family. They played soccer. They had awkward school pictures. They wore pleather and posed on motorcycles.

What? You never did that? Then you weren’t a Kardashian…

This School Note Softened the Blow Of Test Scores In the Kindest Way

Feb 4, 2016 By Christina Caldwell 0

We’ve all felt the disappointment of a bad test score.

As standardized testing has become the norm at an earlier and earlier age, some educators have noticed that scores sometimes deflate students’ self confidence.

Harmony Hill Primary School in Northern Ireland decided to do something about it.

In a letter that the school asked students to read before opening their Transfer Test scores, they gave kids a little pep talk. And it was beautiful.

The full note reads:

“Before you open the envelope with your score in it, we want you to read this first.

Inside the envelope is a score. It’s a score you’ve been waiting for but it might not be the score you’ve been hoping for. If that’s the case, it’s only natural that you will feel disappointed.

We will be very sorry about that and will feel disappointed ‘for you’ too – but we won’t feel disappointed ‘in you.’

Unfortunately, in life, things don’t always work out the way we want them to and it can take a little time to sort out the feelings and thoughts we can have when that happens. We know that each of you has worked very hard and with a great attitude. No score can ever take that away from you.

In fact, we believe that your attitude and who you are as a person is much more than any mark on a test. Who you are and the attitudes you have with travel with you whatever school is fortunate is enough to have you as one of their new pupils in September.

That is so important.

You are quite simply ‘unique’ and we are very proud of you. Make us proud whatever school you go to. Don’t give up easily when the going gets tough. Grow up to be kind, caring, generous, loving adults who make a positive difference to this world by how you live your life.

Remember, the score in the envelope is just a mark for some tests. It cannot measure how amazing you are! So, no matter what happens in the next few minutes, today you must celebrate YOU!

With love from all the staff!”

Now that’s how you encourage students to try their best.

If You Drive Drunk, Helen Mirren Has Some Choice Words For You

Feb 4, 2016 By Christina Caldwell 0

Helen Mirren is the best.

She’s an incredible actress, has a sharp wit, and is apparently a vampire, because it’s impossible to look as good as she does at 70.

When someone so amazing is disappointed in you, it hurts.

So don’t drive drunk, because this 2016 Budweiser Super Bowl commercial is a taste of the kind of sass she can dole out.

35 Tweets That ALL Married People Will Relate To

Feb 4, 2016 By Abby Heugel 0

For better or worse, in sickness and in health. As long as you both shall tweet…

Marriage — that blissful union of two people who promise to love each other until the end of time, or the end of the toilet paper roll that someone didn’t replace.

Anyway, because not everyone can afford therapy, many people take to Twitter and the results often paint a hilariously honest picture of wedded bliss.

The BEST (of the Worst) Excuses For Not Working Out

Feb 4, 2016 By Abby Heugel 0

You know that working out is very important, so you do it most of the time. But then there are times when the only get-up-and-go you have is to get-up-and-go get more food from the fridge before settling back down on the couch for a Game of Thrones marathon.

Do they give out 26.2 stickers for that? If they don’t, they should.

At any rate, if you need an excuse, here are some that make “perfect” sense and completely justify hanging out in corpse pose on the couch for awhile. After all, that’s practically power yoga.

These ‘Shunned’ Things Were Normal Years Ago

Feb 3, 2016 By Abby Heugel 0

People talk about the “good old days,” and remember how things were before political correctness and, well, technology took over the world. Memories from a childhood 20, 30, or even just 10 years ago are probably vastly different than the ones that kids are making today.

So many things that were simply accepted decades ago would be taboo, shunned, or shocking if done and allowed today. Granted, there’s a good reason for some of these things, but others? Not so much. Redditors took to sharing those very things that made their childhood memorable that would never be allowed today — at least not in a court of public opinion.

Airplane Food Is VERY Different In First Class and Here’s the Proof

Feb 3, 2016 By Abby Heugel 0

You would think that shelling out hundreds of dollars for an airplane ticket would mean you’d at least be fed a decent meal. Well, if you choose economy class — which, let’s be honest, most people do — you’re lucky if you get a package of pretzels and a plastic cup of juice.

But if you spring for an actual meal, you probably wonder if those wealthy souls sitting comfortably up front in first class (with all the extra leg room) are actually dining on high-class fare while you’re relegated to food reminiscent of a high school cafeteria.

Well, wonder no more.
