If you could change something about your home, without worry about expense or mess, what would you do?
I would make my home bigger, brighter and in the middle of nowhere. I’d turn it into a farm/sanctuary with lots and lots of animals and I’d have a massive garden.
Lots of white furniture and bright colors. Go for a minimalist and chic decor. Everything would be organized and I’d have lots of cool kitchen appliances. Oh and a massive fish tank. And a playroom for my animals.
Ooooooh and maybe get a sauna, jacuzzi and indoor pool. Ugh, an indoor, heated pool would be a dream.
You may not know this, but there is a virtually invisible, multi-million dollar industry built around the creation and distribution of simple words, phrases, and symbols (commonly known as “slogans”). You’re also probably not aware that there are countless companies who are willing to pay ordinary people BIG money to write them. Slogan Seller shows you the inside knowledge and tools you need to break into this industry and start earning money… even if you have never done anything like it before.
You don’t need to be creative, and you don’t need to be a good writer. All you need is a computer. Ready to find out how it works?
What time do you get up in the morning?
I get up when I need to get up these days. It all depends on what I’m doing that day. It’s also even more dependent on when I finally fall asleep.
I count my blessings on the days that I can sleep because I do have bouts of insomnia and those are the absolute worst. My insomnia episodes were so bad at one point I had to go see a doctor.
When I was in high school I could get up at 5:30 am, no problem. But then in college is when I started having problems getting up in the morning. Much of it was due to lack of routine, fluctuating schedules, being bogged down with so many assignments and stress.
After college, I still had a difficult time waking up in the morning and that was largely due to overworking. I’d be working 3 jobs at a time and would pass out at night and feel completely unrested and exhausted in the mornings.
Here are some tips I use to fall asleep and wake up:
- Create a routine. Let your body get used to the idea.
- Keeping the room as dark as possible.
- Stay away from the phone, computer, TV, etc.
- Have some chamomile tea or other soothing warm drink a few hours before bed.
- Do not chug water right before bed. I drink water before bed, but only a tiny amount so I don’t have to get up a bunch of times to pee in the middle of the night.
- Stretch before bed.
- Exercise earlier in the day or evening. Working out right before bed wakes me up.
- Shower in the evening so you can go to sleep clean and not have to worry about getting up early the next day for a shower.
- Turn off your phone notifications.
- If you’re a procrastinator- Stop! I know, I know. It’s easier said than done, but it’s impossible to sleep when you have all these plans and stress running through your brain.
- If you’re like me, music wakes you up so don’t listen to any high energy music before bed. Or invest in an alarm clock that plays loud music to wake you up in the morning.
- Don’t go to sleep angry. Try and settle your scores before trying to sleep. If that’s not possible try and get your anger out in other ways. Think journaling, meditation, video games, talking to a friend or working out. Whatever works for you.
- Make sure you are dressed for the weather. If it’s cold, dress warm and keep extra blankets closeby to keep warm. If it’s warm, sleep in light breathable clothing or put an ice pack in front of a working fan to get an extra cool kick from your fan.
- Eat healthy. Junk food will often make you feel sluggish. Don’t have caffeine in the evening. Keep away from the high sugar foods before bed and don’t eat a heavy meal before bed.
- Aim to wake up earlier than you actually need to so that way when you hit the snooze button, you still have a bit more cushion time.
- Plan out your next day’s schedule, outfit, breakfast or whatever else you need to get ready for the next day.
- Don’t be so hard on yourself. We all have our good and bad days.
- If you’re not getting your fix of Vitamin D during the day, you might want to invest in a sun lamp. There are sun lamps that come with alarms and help gradually wake you up in the morning.
- If nothing works, and you can afford to, go see a doctor. There may be an underlying medical issue as to why you are not sleeping enough or not able to get up in the morning.
- And lastly, don’t stress. And don’t stress about your stress!

Have you ever won a trophy?
I took dance classes from age 2 to age 9. We always got trophies for participating, but those trophies were more a courtesy thank you for participating type.
Some time in middle school I was on a soccer team and there was a local competition in which our team placed 2nd, so I got a medal for that. I played defense but I scored one goal during the season. I was definitely not the best athlete. I’d actually consider myself athletically challenged.
But, my biggest childhood achievements occurred in the 5th grade when I won 1st place for the ‘Why Science is Important?’ essay contest. I won 1st place in the entire school. I also won 2nd place in the science fair that year as well. My science project was called “Fancy Footwork” and it focused on the ability to use your right hand to write a number 6 and motion your left foot to write a 6 on the floor at the same time. And vice versa with the left hand and right foot.
Because I placed 2nd in the school, I was able to go to the county science fair, in which I place 3rd. I didn’t make it to the state competition, but it was pretty cool because I was able to get into some extra science classes after school with the other participants.
