A Day In Washington D.C.

In 2018, there were 22 million visitors to Washington D.C. – from the USA, alone! So, with that many people visiting, you know there’s plenty to see and do in the nation’s capital. While there’s no shortage of activities, there is a strain on time due to the incessant traffic. Thinking about visiting? Here’s a…

#BookLover Review – Sophie’s World

If you’re looking for a not just a good read, but one that makes you introspective, I suggest Sophie’s World. This is a novel I read as a class requirement my senior year of college and it has remained my favorite book of all time ever since. In the video I explain why but essentially,…

#1MonthNoMirrors

Yesterday, I thought about putting on an outfit that normally I’d never wear. In the past few months I found myself slimming down, most notably in my back. Due to a tumor at the top of my back years ago, I had always had extra back there. So, with the recent smoothness, I had pulled out…

Water Challenge

Here in my video, Water Challenge, I talk about doing something quite unique. My next few blogs are going to be specific to the water challenge itself. I sort of feel like if more people would take this challenge, whether it be for a week or a month, people would grow an awareness of what…

Leap Second

http://youtu.be/Qmoip2NAydE

This Saturday will be longer than any day you have experienced in the past 3 years. No, not because your in-laws are visiting.

There will be 1 second added to the night before July 1st in order to be in perfect aligning with time. It has come to pass that the earth has slowed down……… a super tiny bit but still.

Why? Because of a couple of reasons. First, the lunar pull of the tides has taken its toll. Second, the atomic clock which timekeepers use to.. keep time.. is a teens, weensy, tad bit fast. So, we get an extra 2 milliseconds a day.. and it’s been that way for 100 years. So, ever so often, time catches up with us and we have built upon an extra SECOND!

But, given the small influence the seconds are having, timekeepers have met recently to discuss the significance of said second. They decided they need to evaluate ONE MORE leap second to properly determine its value to mankind.. time.. and space.

Be prepared, people. This could be one of the last leap seconds you will ever experience. Use it wisely!

What do you think of the leap second? Do you think there will ever be any sort of impact to our technology or lives if we were to kick it to the curb? I’m not sure but you know what they say about a butterfly flapping its wings across the globe…

It’s an interesting thought of nothing else. Let me know what you think!

Eco-Friendly After Death Options

When considering recycling, many things come to mind.. aluminum, plastic, paper. You don’t usually contemplate ways to continue recycling into the afterlife. But now, everyone is trying to think of ways to be more environmentally friendly. This includes what kind of footprint (lol) you leave once you cease to live. Personally, I have never understood the…
