5 things that shouldn't be on your resume

Five Things That Shouldn't Be on Your Resume
 
 
Obviously you shouldn't lie on your resume.  Because if you're caught there's no way you'll get the job.  But here are five more things that shouldn't be on your resume.
 
 
1.  An "objective" at the top.  It's old school, and you don't need it.  Almost no one writes anything interesting, and the objective is obvious . . . to get the job you're applying for. 
 
Some people replace it with a "qualifications" section, which is sort of like a quick summary of what you're best at.
 
 
2.  Your current work email.  Always list your personal email address.  And make sure it's something professional.  No matter how much you love horses, "horse-lover 25" WILL ruin a perfectly good resume.
 
 
3.  Big words you'd never use in real life.  One or two might be okay, but you don't want it to seem like you wrote the thing with a thesaurus next to you.
 
 
4.  Tiny, unrelated jobs from 15 years ago.  List jobs that show you have the experience you need to do the job you're applying for.  The exception would be if you did something for a really well-known company like Google . . . you can leave that on there.
 
 
5.  Hobbies.  If you've played piano for 15 years, great.  But unless the job somehow involves a piano, no one cares.  The one time it's okay to include a hobby is when you're young and don't have a lot of work experience.

5 things you shouldn't take on vacation

Five Things You Shouldn't Take on Vacation
 

When you go down your checklist and pack for your next vacation, feel free to FORGET this stuff.  Here are five things you shouldn't take with you when you go on vacation . . .
 
 
1.  Anything irreplaceable you don't HAVE to take.  Or at least don't pack it in your luggage.  Like if you HAVE to bring your grandfather's watch, make sure it stays with you the entire time.  And if your engagement ring isn't insured, why risk it?
 
 
2.  Sunblock.  Or any other liquid, really.  If it's over 3.4 ounces you can't carry it on the plane, and if you put it in your luggage, there's a chance it'll break open and ruin everything. 
 
 
You COULD be all organized and buy travel-sized bottles . . . but why not just travel light and buy it when you get there?
 
 
3.  A hair dryer.  Even budget motels have them, so it's not worth lugging around the extra weight.
 
 
4.  Too many shoes.  Unless you're going somewhere for a month, you shouldn't need more than two pairs.
 
 
5.  Too much clothing in general.  Most people pack at least one really dressy outfit, just in case they need it.  Then they almost never do, so be realistic.  If you're going to the beach, you won't need an evening gown.

[Hey, just tryin' to help you out!]

5 mistakes your making with booze

Five Mistakes You're Making with Booze
 
 
Here are five mistakes you might be making with booze . . .
 
 
1.  Using a frosted beer glass.  It makes it foam up, and kills the flavor.  Plus, it doesn't really make the beer that much colder.
 
 
2.  Letting the champagne cork pop off.  The right way to open champagne is to untwist the wire thing on the cork, but leave it on.  Then put your thumb on top of it, hold onto the cork, and twist the BOTTLE.
 
 
3.  Tilting your glass too much or too little when you pour beer.  The right way to keep the foam down is to hold the glass at a 45-degree angle.
 
 
4.  Letting the bottle touch the glass when you pour wine.  Apparently you're a classless heathen if you do that.
 
 
5.  Taking Tylenol for a hangover.  The alcohol in your system makes acetaminophen toxic for your liver.  Which is why aspirin and ibuprofen are better.
 
 
In fact, men who regularly take Tylenol aren't supposed to have more than two drinks a day.  And for women, it's one drink.

6 things you should NEVER buy online

Six Things You Should NOT Buy Online


Some people buy everything online now.  A friend who has free shipping with Amazon told me he bought a single TOOTHBRUSH on there the other day.  But here are six things that experts say you should never buy online.
 
 
1.  Kids' shoes.  Their feet grow too fast, so it's better to try them on first.
 
 
2.  Flowers.  Obviously everyone buys them online now, on big holidays like Valentine's Day and Mother's Day.  But if you're close by, you can get a much better bouquet for less money if you go through a local florist.
 
 
3.  Furniture.  It's better to actually sit on it first.  Because if you don't like it, it's expensive to send back.  And a lot of online furniture stores charge for shipping AND tack on a delivery charge . . . and both might not be refundable.
 
 
4.  High-end musical instruments.  If you're buying a cheap guitar for your kid, that's fine.  But if you want something good, it's worth the extra money to go to a music store and make sure it sounds the way you want it to.  Plus, it could get damaged in the mail.
 
 
5.  Rugs.  You can't really tell what the exact color is by looking at a photo on your computer.  And they're also a pain to send back if you don't like it.  Discount websites like RugsUSA.com don't usually cover the return shipping.
 
 
6.  Mattresses.  It's a really expensive purchase, so you want to lie on it first.  But not just because of the expense . . . you spend so much of your life sleeping, buying a mattress is the one purchase you don't want to cut corners on.

Caitlyn Jenner [my 2 cents]

Life is too short, way too short, to be ANYTHING but happy. And in a world filled with so much hate, negativity, and violence, finding true happiness is so important. Which is why I support Caitlyn Jenner 100%. Can you imagine the weight lifted from her shoulders? For her to know that she is finally free to be her TRUE self? She looks STUNNING and I think what she has done is INCREDIBLY brave and courageous. I wish her nothing but love and happiness on her new and exciting journey. If we could all learn to accept others, not judge them, and support what makes them most happy, no matter what our beliefs or opinions are....we'd be a better world. You don't have to agree with it, it's more about saying "if they're happy that's all that matters." Wouldn't you want someone to say the same for you? Listen to the words she is saying in this video, listen closely. How can you NOT be supportive of her? Why would you NOT want her to be happy? What kind of person would want her to continue to suffer? It's ALL...ABOUT...ACCEPTANCE. She's finally free. Breathe easy Caitlyn, it's finally over.

5 exercises you should STOP doing

According to a personal trainer, here are five exercises you should stop doing . . . because you'll just end up hurting yourself.
 
 
1.  Don't use the leg curl machine.  It puts too much pressure on your knees, and can also hurt your lower back.  You're better off just doing squats.
 
 
2.  Stop doing box jumps.  That's the one where you hop on top of a wooden box, and back down.  Most people get hurt jumping OFF the box, because landing puts a lot of stress on your knees, feet, ankles, and lower back.
 
 
3.  Don't run on a flat treadmill.  It's not a great workout, because the momentum pulls your feet forward.  But you can also end up running faster than your body's used to, which is hard on your knees.  So set the incline at 2% to simulate flat ground.
 
 
4.  Don't wear a weightlifting belt.  You don't need one unless you're doing major, Olympic-style powerlifting.  Plus your back and core don't get as good of a workout.  Instead, just flex your abs to activate your core during things like squats and deadlifts.
 
 
5.  Don't do overhead kettlebell swings.  You can still use kettlebells, just don't swing them any higher than chest level, or you can hurt your neck and lower back.

So THAT'S what the extra hole is for!!

We've all seen it, and we've all wondered what it's for. That extra set of holes at the top of your sneakers... turns out, they serve a brilliant purpose.

Seriously, this is genius.

Watch this video, and you might never have to deal with blisters on your feet ever again.
