Here are four weird things that make you seem smarter, according to science:
1. Walk at the same speed as other people. A study in 2007 found that when you walk faster OR slower than the people around you, you're seen as being less intelligent and competent than when you walk at the same pace.
2. Avoid alcohol. And not just because you're dumber when you've been drinking. A 2013 study found that just HOLDING a drink makes you seem less intelligent.
3. Use your middle initial. In a study last year, people's writing samples were rated more favorably when a middle initial was included in their byline.
4. Avoid using big words. Which is weird, because you'd think big words would make you seem smarter. But a study in 2006 found the opposite is true. SIMPLE writing makes you seem more intelligent than jamming in a bunch of words no one knows.
If you know ANYTHING about me, it's that I'm obsessed with my cat. Maybe I'm just being biased, but I am pretty certain I have the most adorable cat on the planet. So since I haven't posted any pictures of her in a while, I figured, why not? Below are a few recent pictures of Nova. She is the funniest little girl and has such a big personality. Note the one picture where she has just a TINY BIT of tongue hanging out haha! And the picture with me giving the look of "what is this weirdo doing," is right before she attacked my hair. She loves to chase it and chew on it. She's not quite all there sometimes, but I love that about her, because let's face it, neither am I lol. Oh, and the cutie patootie guy on the couch is my sexy boyfriend, Matt. Hope these pics can brighten your day!

As you all may or may not know, I am a die hard Eagles fan (HUSH IT LOL!). Well this year, my boyfriend and I decided to try something different with the colors of our Christmas tree lights and decorations, so we went with blue, silver, and white. Which we didn't realize until it was too late, are also Dallas Cowboys colors..........yeah. Haha, you can see the picture of it below. Oh well, we're stickin' with it.
I also wanted to show you a picture of our new little kitty cat we adopted. Her name is Nova (like Chevy Nova, my bf and I share a love for cars, plus "Nova" means "new and young," which was perfect.) She is the funniest little thing and so sweet. Super affectionate and VERY talkative lol. And she plays FETCH, like, legitimate fetch. It's hilarious. But she is just perfect for us and you can see her adorable face in the pictures below. Anywho, enjoy your week! And happy shopping!

The video is all over the internet. A house is on fire and people are screaming that there is a man still inside. Well another man named Tom Artiaga, who was just passing by, who by the way did not know the man inside the burning home, without thinking runs INTO the burning home and brings the man out to safety. THIS guy, is a TRUE hero. What's even cooler is that Jimmy Kimmel brought him onto his show and gave him the surprise of a lifetime that brought Tom to tears. Watch the awesome video below.
The video is a little long, but you can skip ahead to about the 3 or 4 minute mark to see the good stuff. This guy is an Alaskan blogger and watch what happens when he discovers what it sounds like to skip a rock across a rozen lake. I'll admit, I didn't know it made this sound, pretty cool stuff.
