Is Your Friend A Cat Or Dog Person?

Is Your Friend A Cat Or Dog Person?

The best way to find out if you and another person are going to be great friends, is to learn whether they like cats or dogs. This trivial question may seem meaningless or irrelevant to some. However, knowing if this person likes cats or dogs can tell a lot about their personality.

According to Psychology Today, a dog person is going to be more outgoing. They are also going to be more conservative in their beliefs. Dog lovers tend to be more competitive too, but they won’t be assertive about this fact. They also seem to prefer their pets being submissive to them. Dog owners do not have as long as a commitment as cat folks. Dogs typically last seven to 10 years old whereas cats live longer lives. Dogs also give their owners constant attention.

Cat lovers, according to Psychology Today, w...

Conserving Water In California

Conserving Water In California

While the drought may technically be over for many areas of California, it is never a bad idea to conserve water. Not only is conserving water good for the planet, it can be very good for your wallet as well.

Many people argue against water conservation, stating that 71% of the earth is covered in water. This must mean there is more than enough for everyone, right? Wrong.

97% of all water on Earth is found in the oceans, which means that water is salty and undrinkable. This leaves only 3% of water as drinkable freshwater. Unfortunately, 66% of all freshwater on Earth is frozen and locked away in the polar ice caps.

This leaves very little drinkable water for all life on earth. With population rates on the rise, water conservation is becoming more and more important.

Passing Cars While Driving

Passing Cars While Driving

It is no surprise that Californians spend a lot of time behind the wheels. This means we spend a lot of time on the road, which makes it very likely that we’ve encountered other drivers who are less than great.

Every once in a while, we will come across a driver going far below the speed limit for that stretch of road. If luck is on your side, the driver will be in the right lane, leaving the left lane open to pass him or her. However, this is usually not the case. Often times, the slow driver is in the left lane, which is meant for faster traffic, or is in the only lane. This leads to other drivers trying to pass.

If done improperly, this can lead to serious accidents, especially in the case of 2-lane highways. In the case of 2-lane roads, passing is tricky.

A driver may only pass anot...

Why Modern Generation Is Losing The True Meaning Of LOVE

Why Modern Generation Is Losing The True Meaning Of LOVE

The true meaning of love has vanished in today’s society, by having virtual lives on the social media.

Shakespeare wrote that “love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind”, but what if we as a generation are focusing too much on looking with the eyes, rather than our minds?

We live in the era of virtual lives. We throw ourselves into taking the perfect Instagram pic, articulating the perfect Facebook status, and coming up with the perfect Tweet. Our online personas are exactly how we want them to be because that is how we want people to see us, but we as humans are inherently imperfect.

There is a growing problem among our generation: we are confusing the people we see online with the people we meet in real life, and in turn, we make little effort to develop a relationship with ...

Ways To Deal With A Stressful Work Environment

Ways To Deal With A Stressful Work Environment

We have all had a stressful day on the job, but when a stressful day turns into weeks and months, something has to give. One-third of a person’s life is spent at work, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). It only makes sense that if you’re stressed out over work, the other two-thirds of your life feels off balance as well.

When dealing with a stressful work environment you must first pinpoint the origin of the stressor. Is it a coworker, an upcoming event at the office, or the customers that are causing you stress?
