Here are this week’s Life Pro Tips.
1. If you’re taking a foreign language class and have to prepare a journal, essay, presentation, etc., use ideas and plot lines from sitcoms.
These assignments are meant to practice your language skills, so veracity doesn’t matter. And using sitcoms is ideal because it grounds your writing into reality, so you won’t encounter obscure terminology or fantastical scenarios. Plus, it makes these assignments worthwhile and fun as you’re not wracking your brain to come up with something more interesting than what you had for breakfast.
2. When a stranger asks you to take a photo of a group, take several before and during the “3 2 1” countdown.
Basically, just click the button from the time you get the phone through the final shot. People tend to appreciate candid shots and moments more than the staged ones. If nothing else, it gives them something to talk about later on. Of course, take the final one as well.
3. For people pleasers it can be very hard to say “no” and it is easy to get taken advantage of.
Practice by saying no to small things that don’t matter much. It will make it easier to say when it really counts.
4. If you own a pet or are taking care of one, look up the nearest emergency veterinarian right now so you know exactly where to take the pet in case of an emergency.
If the animal is suffering, it’s best to know exactly where to go rather than wasting precious moments looking up the nearest pet hospital.
Make sure it’s open on Sundays just in case.
5. Deer often hide/leave fawns in high grass at this time of the year.
If you are mowing high grass with a Riding Mower or similar machine take extra time and check entire field before you start. If you do find one don’t be afraid to move it, mama deer will not abandon fawn because of your scent.
