The video in itself was not designed to be a tutorial, however due to the ever-so-convenient camera angle, it may very well be classifyable as one. Comprendo? I hope this is sufficient to pass as a ‘non-piano playing piano player’…if that translates into anything in the English language!_

16 Common Dreams & Their Interpretations

Everyone has dreams…well, at least, everyone has subconscious dreams (ouch…). Did you know the average adult will of had 100,000 or more dreams within their lifetime? I once heard on top of this that one dreams up to 20 dreams a night…so what do these dreams actually mean? One expert claims it is the body sending internal messages to the person, and if one acted upon a dream, perhaps someone can change their conscious life (for the better, of course!)

Await no more…the answers to all of your dreams and an insight into your subconscious self *cue non-existent fascinated ‘woo’ from also-non-existent crowd*


 

STUPID SMARTPHONE- Smart phones and Facebook are the latest objects to Image result for tumblr phonecreep their way into our dreams. THE DREAM: The most common tech-dream centers around dialing the phone: either your fingers are too fat to dial the numbers on the keypad, or the call keeps dropping, or the person simply cannot get the desired numbers to appear on the screen. THE ANALYSIS: This is analysed to revolve around communication issues in real life. Failing to make a call- and thus communicate with another- may relay the real life situation in which you feel your thoughts, opinions or feelings are not being listened to or considered by someone else.


RUN FOR YOUR LIFE- For women, a commonly recurring dream involved being 2. The Dream: Run for Your Lifechased. An expert believes these dreams ae triggred by ‘fight or flight’ situations in waking life, in which one chooses avoidance rather than open confrontation. THE ANALYSIS: The question from this dream, experts say, is ‘what are you running from in your daily life? It is said that these dreams will promptly stop, as soon as the real life fear is confronted and dealt with.


HAIL TO THE CHIEF- “dreams about the president may symbolize your ability to Image result for tumblr presidentmake decisions and govern your own life”, an expert explains. THE ANALYSIS: “If the president is a helpful character in your dreams, then most likely you’re managing things well, she explains. If he’s a malevolent character, then you may be misusing your authority. And if he is in danger or not well in the dream, then you may be afraid to harness your own power”.


Image result for tumblr schoolSCHOOL DAZE- Almost all ‘back-to-school’ dreams can be related to job stress. ANALYSIS: “That’s a good indication you’re feeling uncertain of your place at work or even your career choice.” Worried about the school bell ringing? “That suggests we feel time is running out on us in real life in the career department.” THE LESSON: From this evident dissatisfaction, perhaps it is time to take action and bin the school bell. Maybe this means finding a new job, or solely making the existing one more meaningful.


FURRY FRIENDS- Dogs are said to represent the characters they possess: loyalty and friendship. THE ANALYSIS: “When you have a dog dream, think about whether the behavior in the dream mirrors behavior in a human relationship you have.” THE LESSON: “Ask yourself which of your real-life relationships reminds you of the behavior of the dog in your dream. Are you or is someone around you being as loyal as a Labrador or as vicious as a pit bull? Your dog dreams will clue you in to the degree of loyalty within you or around you and whether it needs some obedience training or needs to be let loose.”


FLYING HIGH- It’s said to be in connection with your ability to ‘soar to new heights’ and progress onto higher levels within your life. THE ANALYSIS: “You may find yourself flying in your dreams when you have broken free from a bad relationship or a heavy situation the previous day.” THE LESSON: “This dream is telling you to continue being inspired about something you’re doing…this dream is showing you that the ability to rise above and break free is alive and well within you.”


 SECRET RENDEZVOUZ- The affair dream does not have to mirror reality; there needn’t be a real affair to dream of one. THE ANALYSIS: “It does mean something is getting in the way of your relationship. Usually the culprit is work. But it could also be the Xbox, golf or fantasy football. THE LESSON: This dream can actually fan the flames of your relationship.  Once you can pinpoint the cause, compromise. “Offer to give up or cut back on something your mate isn’t a big fan of if he or she promises to cut back on the activity that is causing you to feel left out.”


 

LOOSING YOUR TEETH- This is said to be linked to the way you communicate in waking life. “It may indicate you allowed something out of your mouth that should have remained in there, like your teeth . Another variation is the “teeth crumbling or breaking” dream. This is often about weak speech. Maybe you don’t feel you made your point well enough in an argument, or perhaps you didn’t say anything at all when you should have.”


FULL EXPOSURE-“Finding yourself naked in public is a classic dream and may reflect feeling vulnerable and exposed in waking life.” THE ANALYSIS: Loewenberg says she had the dream the night before she went on “Good Morning America.” The root of the dream is often connected to the concern that others are going to see your flaws. THE LESSON: “Have you ever noticed that no one else in the dream seems to care that you’re naked and you’re the only one freaking out? Your dreaming mind is reassuring that you are the only one giving so much thought and energy to this situation.”


HOME SWEET HOME?- The house is representative of you, whether it is the home you know and love or somewhere utterly unknown. THE ANALYSIS: “Look at it as an honest blueprint of your current self-image. If rooms are neglected, this could be connected to a talent or skill you are no longer using. If you’re eager to explore new rooms, this could be connected to your need to learn and grow.” THE LESSON: “Finding new rooms is your dreaming mind showing you there’s more to you than you are using”- hence perhaps it is time to use that neglected talent, or expand further in your job, schooling etc.


HELLO, LOVER-“In dreams, sex is not about a physical union you want but rather a psychological union you need. For a woman to dream of sex with an unknown man, for example, may mean that she desires generic male qualities and is working on uniting these into her own self and behavior. Sex with a coworker doesn’t necessarily mean you secretly lust for the person, but rather that you desire his or her ability to handle clients with ease.” THE LESSON: “Your sex dream tells you that uniting a particular quality or attitude into yourself right now — a quality from your dream lover — will bring about a new life for you.”


APOCALYPSE NOW-“End-of-the-world dreams are very common and signal that some aspect of our own world is ending or changing.” THE ANALYSIS: “Moving to a new town, changing careers or quitting an addiction — all these milestone changes can bring apocalyptic dreams with them.”


WHERE IS MY CAR?-“Losing your car in a dream is connected to uncertainty or loss of motivation.” “Ask yourself what in your life you no longer want to continue or what is causing you to feel uncertain. This is found to be a common dream among retirees. It can be a reflection of their feelings of being directionless now that they no longer have a job to get up and go to every morning.” THE LESSON: “Your dreaming mind wants you to find a new path.”. “It’s time to try something different because the direction you are headed in now isn’t going to get you anywhere.”


FINAL FAREWELL-Dreams about death don’t usually signal a person’s actual demise. ANALYSIS: “Typically, they occur when things change or end in our lives”. “We may dream of someone we care about dying when our relationship with them is changing. Parents, especially moms, may dream of their children dying when the child has reached a milestone. We may also dream of our own death when we have undergone a major change.” THE LESSON: “Your dream is telling you that it is time to let go of what is passing so that you can look forward to what is coming.”


CLOSED FOR REPAIRS-“The most common metaphor for the clogged-toilet dream is the inability to use it  because of its condition. It’s often linked to the inability to express yourself when something is really bothering you. If you dream toilets are nasty, clogged or unusable, you need to ask yourself what frustration or negativity you are holding in right now. What is it that you are not allowing yourself to flush away?” THE LESSON: “This dream is warning you that your emotional plumbing is backed up. The more you allow your frustrations (to build up), the bigger ‘mess’ you’ll have to deal with in the end. Let it go!”


READY FOR TAKEOFF-“Planes often represent a journey for which you have high hopes.” is most commonly found that planes are connected to career because, like a plane, your career is something you hope will take off, reach new heights and take you places. “When the plane comes crashing down from the sky, it may reflect a giant letdown that has occurred.” THE LESSON: “Be proactive in assessing and evaluating your career path and where it’s headed. Don’t let a little turbulence throw you off course — time to regroup and change directions…”



 

5 WAYS TO INSTANTLY BOOST YOUR ENERGY~ PLOTTWISTT

The result of these methods is said to turn your body into a ‘fatigue-fighting machine’…I’m not so sure these have the ability to transform a human into something bionic but I’m sure they’d do something  just as effective (only slightly less risky, I hope.)

So here goes… five exhilarating ways to instantly boost your energy:


flowers-tullip-unique-red-spring-roses-featured-Favim.com-417879
FIND SOMETHING RED: It’s odd maybe, well actually, it’s not. red is an emotive colour that is capable of physically changing the body: it enhances blood pressure and can boost heart rate. It’s known as a ‘stimulant colour’…
tumblr_lz1p6nRqm31ro8yeoo1_500
YAWNING – seems trivial and obvious right? But yawning is a way of cooling of your brain, and hence re-energizing it. (Fun fact: did you know the average yawn lasts for 6 seconds? Well, the more you know!)
tumblr_n39mpaWoii1rbgazio1_500
RUNNING/ WALKING- 2 hours…that’s how many hours of energy on average you will have after only a brief 10 minute walk.
tumblr_m5w8howQYb1rn8tzso1_1280
GET ON YOUTUBE- run and tell your parents: watching videos like dancing hamster (or ay other hilarious creation) will boost your blood pressure and increase heart rate, hence leaving you with a new and energised self.
chia-seeds-in-a-bowl
CHIA SEEDS- sprinkle some of these around! (Preferably keeping them on your salads, thanks). They are choka-bloka with Vitamin B, protein and fibre.
thW7FA0VOZ
STRETCH!- Bored? Tired? Lacking energy? Try this: stand in the doorway facing forwards with your feet several inches apart. Reach the sides of the frame, now grab the frame with your fingers and push your chest forwards, until you feel a stretch in your torso and back. Hold this for 30 seconds. The exercise stimulates the ‘sympathetic nervous system’; this hence, is clearly a beneficial little stretch.

8 THINGS YOU HAVE BEEN USING WRONG YOUR ENTIRE LIFE!

Do you use your hair grips (or bobby pins if you are that way inclined) upside down? Can you locate the built in straw-holder in your coke can? Do you know how to double the volume of your ketchup pot at McDonalds? Your life-changing wisdom awaits you…

‘Eat your way to smoother skin’

The long and short of it is, as obvious as it may sound, it is not necessary to pay astonishing amounts of money for some devil-looking cleansing serum when it is perfectly possible to obtain clear skin without the chemicals.

These foods are ‘anti-cellulite’- yes, I too what a little like ‘what the hell is this cellulite beast I have been eating my whole life, it sounds like some type of disease’. But no, this is cellulite:

ff

 


…And here are the top twenty foods to fight cellulite:


Tomatoes- great for fighting cellulite, also for containing lycopene, and vitamin C which promote collagen production…this in turn increaes skin elasticity. 
Pineapple- known for being an extraordinary aphrodisiac…(in case you don’t know what aphrodisiacs are…well…have fun googling that!). On a lighter and less odd note, pineapple is a rated anti-inflammatory. Again it prevents water retention
Watermelon- contains up to the equivalent of one glass of water per slice. Also a good source of potassium and fibre, of course. It is high in antioxidants that stimulate blood flow and fight against water retention…

 

 

Pears- provide potassium, and activate slow metabolism, and furthermore reduce the effects of toxins in the body.
Citrus- marvellous for vitamin C, certain for B, which help increase blood flow and reduce toxin deposits
Berries- for vitamin C to eliminate toxins and their deposits within cells
Bananas- great for stimulating blood vessels. Good source of potassium, vitamin B6, and magnesium. In addition, bananas prevent water retention and stress- great for combating cellulite. I REPEAT- BANANAS PREVENT STRESS?! Apparently.
Avocados- high in calories, yes. But they also are chocka-blocka f essential fatty acids that are tremendously good for skin. Just to top it off, they also improve blood flow and fight cellulite.

 

Nuts- packed with protein, fibre, healthy fat, vitamin E…all things marvellous at fighting cellulite. Eat too many, and the fat shall roll on, ‘all in moderation’, as they say. A handful a day keeps the cellulite away
Grains- pasta, black rice, cereals, and other grains are a great source of low-calorie energy. They are too packed with antioxidants that contribute to eliminating cellulite-forming toxins
Broccoli- as well as being an exceptional source of vitamins and minerals (blah blah, I know), this super-food is high in alpha-lipoic acid. This acid helps thicken collagen and thereby avoid cellulite.
Green Tea- Increases metabolic rate, which in turn reduces the absorption of unwanted fat. It also has diuretic and slimming properties- these fight water retention, and of course, cellulite.
Water- it helps eliminate a variety of toxins, which is handy since cellulite is absorbed by toxins. This means, reluctantly, the higher the volume of water drunk, the more toxins eliminated. So be sure to drink your 2.5 litres a day.

(SOME) SURPRISING CALCIUM SOURCES TO BOOST YOUR HEALTH!

I pains me to say it but LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER: always eat a balanced diet. This may sound as dull as hell and evoke an endless sense of foods with ‘HEALTH‘ written all over them…piles of fruit…vegetables…spinach…carrots EUGH. Well guess what…did you know that Cheerios are actually surprisingly high in calcium? Hm. Thought not. Your education awaits you my fellow (non-existent) friend…


HOW TO EAT YOUR WAY TO A CALCIUM OVERLOAD!:

  1. Drink a glass of milk after you wake up, and once again before bed. 
  2. Grab a handful of almonds with breakfast…you’d be ‘nuts’ not to! (sorrrry)– the most nutritionally dense nut, packing a crazy amounts of nutrients per calorie and ounce. Aside from calcium, they also contain potassium, vitamin E, and iron.
  3. And as for the cereal…well…CHEERIOS will do the job!– bet you didn’t expect that one… did ya now.
  4. Take an orange for a mid-morning snack– packed to the brim (not that oranges have a brim…) with not only calcium but VITAMIN C TOO!! Amazing. Thank the Lord for oranges (though he could have thought of a name with a little more imagination…)
  5. ….And why not have some orange juice while your at it?
  6. Fancy a yogurt? Take one!– Your calcium overload awaits…
  7. If you’re still not satisfied…take a nibble of cheese.

 


Don’t expect a six pack after employing this tactic, but do expect a ‘new and healthier you’…yeah I don’t get that saying either. Bloody advertisements.

I do wish for you to find this blog post thing interesting…in whatever form a lecture about the health of human beings can be interesting…basically thank you to the one or two lost people who were unfortunate enough to stumble across this site. *sigh of utter depression in empathy*.

Gooooooood ‘damn’ bye (as said by the all love-able Joey Graceffa from the world of YOUTUBE. I love him- just a side note, as you understand.)

REVISION HACKS FOR GCSE, A-LEVEL…

DID YOU KNOW THAT NEW TIMES ROMAN IS THE EASIEST AND FASTEST FONT TO READ? ARE YOU AWARE OF THE POWER OF CHEWING GUM FOR BOOSTING CONCENTRATION? HOW MUCH DO YOU KNOW ABOUT BOOSTING MEMORY?

Follow these simple tips and others in order to revise ‘smarter, not harder’…a stupid saying which deeply pains me to say (type) the said words but unfortunately it happens to be true.

You (yes, you, my non-existent reader I do(n’t) currently own) may perceive some to be trivial and blatantly obvious but trust me- I myself have just sat 23 consecutive examinations and appear to still be alive and jolly- so my advice, if nothing else, is utterly honest (kind of). So tip number one coming up…*nervous awaiting*

Revision-header


  • TIP NUMBER ONE– Don’t re-write the book. 

tumblr_neesv0g2wd1u1hkcbo1_1280
THE WRONG WAY!

Yes, that’s great, you have re-written the entire book…some of which is (optimistically) in your brain but: (1) it took you 3 days to write, (2) you have used 2 of your favourite pens to do it, and (3) your time is actually more efficiently spend just by reading the bloody book.

Just reading the book (or whatever form the information be in) in front of you will save you a SHED LOAD of time. No- the information may not totally go in first time, but think: it takes you a maximum of 5 hours to read the book. It took you 3 days to write it. That is equivalent to 72 hours of non-stop writing. Within those 72 hours you could have read the book a total of just over 14 TIMES!! And by then, believe me, you’ll have nailed it.

I HIGHLY recommend too, reading aloud. Teaching your dog, cat, parrot, mother…whatever. It helps.


  • TIP NUMBER TWO- POST-ITS

1So basically revision cards.  Select a very small area- limit yourself to a maximum of 7 words- paraphrase. Then write it. Read through these before bed, over dinner, when you get a second.

Write a question. Test yourself. It’s the only real way to find out what you know, and what you don’t. Moreover DON’T BUY REVISION CARDS!! It is a heck of a lot cheaper to purchase a pack of post-it notes. Trust me.

A handy trick is with the small thin rectangular Post-it Notes. If you fold just the corner of the note down, you will be able to write your question on the visible part of the note, and scribble the answer on the under side of the folded down corner…then you can easily test yourself. Too you can stick these onto A3 paper and make an outrageously marvellous display…(as above).


THE FOLLOWING ARE A LITTLE MORE CREATIVE AND PERHAPS A LITTLE MORE ‘FUN’ (HAHA- FUN. & REVISION. NO.) SO HERE GOES…


  • TO MAKE YOUR NOTES NEATER- IMAGINE YOU ARE MAKING THEM FOR SOMEONE ELSE

This way neatness is of compulsion, not choice. Hence reading back through the works of art will be all the more enjoyable…and fun. 

 

  • FAST READING- USE NEW TIMES ROMAN

This saves yet more time, if you are to type out the notes rather than writing them, and using New Times Roman means you are just that liiiiiiiiittle bit faster. 

 

  • STAY ALERT AND AWAKE- SPRAY AN UNFAMILIAR SCENT

Weird as it may seem- it is scientifically proven to prevent the tugging and tight grips of sleep and drowsiness pulling you to surrender. And that means more juicy info into your expanding brain.

 

  • REVISING IN DIFFERENT PLACES- THIS HELPS TO RETAIN KNOWLEDGE AND IMPROVE MEMORY 

Avoid sitting in the same spot day-in-day-out. This will bore you, and if your bored, lets face it…your stuffed. So sit outside, stroll the landing. Go to a friends house…or even the dreaded LIBRARY!

 

  • FACT: CHEWING GUM ACTUALLY BOOSTS CONCENTRATION

It’s proven, its true, it works. Go to Tescos.

 

  • SAY ALL ALOUD

Mentioned earlier..but hearing the words you are trying to learn and going through the motions of speaking them means you are more likely to remember them next time you see them. Science and stuff.

 

  • THE HARDEST PART OF REVISION IS STARTING- So get the hell up and do it…QUICK!!



So there you have it, numerous revision tips to aid your quest to success. I hope this has aided my millions of (non-living, non-breathing) readers who take (no) interest in my teachings. *Sigh*. Anyway, so… yeah. Bye.

Ask yourself these questions:

I have a Facebook account; which may surprise you considering I write like a 55 year old lonely man. But every once in a while I come across some inspirational sh*t which really mucks up my already mentally unstable mind. But like I say, it’s inspirational sh*t.

So, (not) being a lonely 55 year old man, I thought I would create some inspirational sh*t…well. Google and I. We are very fond of one another…um. I felt a little more lonely when researching questions, which involved the typing of “questions to ask y…”, which I would have followed up with “yourself”, had the suggestions not been:

pictures

No suggestion for questions to “yourself”? Okay. *Creeps back to hole in ground*.

So without more-damn-a-do, lets ask questions, to yourself, to make you seriously re-contemplate your potentially already contemplated life. Yeah.

Cat-Wallpaper-Tumblr-1366x768

> Question to ask yourself number one (in your face Google- this is history, apparently)-

If this were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today? 

(the preferable answer being yes, if no, then GET A SHIFT WITH YOUR LIFE WOMEN/MAN!)

> Question two:

What matters most in my life?

(Apart from Nutella, and Joey Graceffa. Oh and Cameron Dallas. And Tyler Oakley, and Troye Sivan and the WHOLE youtube community. #TeamInternet).

> Question three:

Have I done anything lately worth remembering?

(Apart from reading this blog. Obviously. Obviously.)

>Question four:

What have I given up on?

(A friend? A goal? Reading this blog? < OI)

> Questionio five:

If I had to instill one piece of advice in a newborn baby’s mind, what advice would I give?

(*Slush warning*)

>Question se…six:

If I try to fail, and succeed, which have I done?

(Failed, obviously. Right?)

>Question seven:

What do I need to change about myself?

(Don’t say your phone, or your clothes, or your eyebrows, think DEEPER.)

>Question eight:

How many of my friends would I trust with my life?

(“With my life” being like…hanging of a cliff over a shark infested ocean, or something.)

>Question nine:

What do I want most in life?

(For me- utter happiness. *Face palm at self*)

>Question ten:

Which is worse: failing or never trying?

(Come on…DUH)


Thank you for reading this wee snippet of a blog I threw together for my millions of (non existent) viewers…I appreciate your time! I hope you now have fully re-evaluated your life and will take any necessary action…or whatever.

MAYBELLINE NEW YORK MASTER GRAPHIC LIQUID EYELINER: REVIEW| YAY OR NAY?

So this is undeniably an eyeliner, so I can start of by saying it lines the eyes…sometimes. Its temperamental nature leaves a nice ‘bold’ INVISIBLE  line above the lashes, completely contradicting the whole nature of the product. The packaging states:

“Liquid marker eyeliner for a bold graphic look.”

Without the ‘bold graphicness‘, the eyeliner is shaping up to be the equivalent of that sold in Poundland (*POUNDLAND PROMO: EYELINERS, MASCARAS, LIPSTICKS FOR ONLY £1, ROLL UP ROLL UP*).

However, on the rare occasions that it actually decides to do its job, the result can be somewhat satisfactory. As promised, the liner ACTUALLY LINES THE DAMN EYES, providing a bold, striking black line. The sloping head shape also aids application, and allows multiple styles to be easily drawn onto the eyelid. It looks a little something (exactly) like this:

malhar_140921_0106

So once you’ve actually got some colour out of the thing, you prey it will last until you are 71 to recoup the stress of the whole damn painful process. Well good news, although it pains me to say, the line is incredibly long lasting…providing you don’t wash for the next 7 decades. Waterproof is not a nature withheld by the product, and so any moisture may provide you with a larger line than desired, and covering a lot more of your face then anticipated…

Other pros of using this product run along the lines of: its bold black colour (when it is so kind to show its face…or however you mould the expression to fit a non living object- oh lord), its flat base, its resistance to clump, and last but most certainly not least it was made in Italy. I always get excited by the thought of a guy with a 10 foot moustache ringing cowbells making eyeliner pens- normal right?

….And the final look is one of about 10,028,264,739,102,837 ways to wear this type of eyeliner, but preferably don’t follow this striking but quite frankly overpowering example:

MASTER_GRAPH_Model-Shot_665x602

(I think the emphasis is on the precision of the line, not the fact she now has a 50/50 white:black ratio eyelid…)


Thank you for reading, passing by, or for just about anything I could find to thank you for!
