One example is the book Everything I Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten . It's a book about life in ...

For any of you that have read some of my earlier posts about my life, how I've never had a girlfriend, I don't have a ton of close friends and I don't go out to parties or whatever. You'll never know until you give it a shot. Honestly, you gain a lot more going out socializing than not. You don't e...

I think it's nice to have a small community. Newbies get their questions answered quickly and effectively.

Aside from fresh fruits and veggies, I snack on dried fruit, natural cheese, nuts. Before I snack, I usually ask myself if I'm actually hungry or thirsty.

Drink a lot of water.
