Here are 5 things you should know.
1. If you have children, even a newborn, you should make legal arrangements for their care in case something happens to you.
Even if you are married and have a significant family you assume will take care of it…don’t assume. Life changes in a heartbeat.
No one wants to think about the end of life. It’s dark, it’s uncomfortable, it’s boring. But lack of planning has caused nightmarish situations that can go on for years after your death.
The minute you find out you are pregnant, you should contact an attorney/paralegal for creating a will and get life insurance.
You cannot presume your spouse will automatically get everything. That is not true. An attorney/paralegal can advise you best on this and your local/state laws.
Do not forget bank accounts and passwords. Not for social media, but for access to a lot of things. Safe deposit boxes. Location of documents, making sure your social security number is available for survivor benefits.
This is twice as important if you have children and you are divorced. Your former spouse will not have access to anything if you have not specified it legally and in writing. You have a vintage Shelby you want your 9-year-old to have when he turns 16? Put it in legal writing or it will likely be sold, or have no legal title or be uninsurable. Have a collection of vintage toys your daughter would love, even if she’s only two now? Put it in writing, because it could be sold, tossed or fought over.
Take an afternoon to plan, take another to sit down and put it in writing and have it properly notarized and witnessed. Your loved ones will thank you.
2. Koalas have a 20% chance of being infected with Chlamydia with many more carrying the disease.
If you are harboring Koala refugees from the Australian bushfires, please take the proper precautions to keep yourself clean and try to limit the spread of the disease.
Koalas are cute and fuzzy, but please be careful when harboring any if you are sheltering some. Avoid their urine and other bodily waste such as feces and any blood. Use a disinfectant and make sure to clean your hands and clothes thoroughly after interacting with them.
3. Your local animal shelters will take your old stuffed animals and rugs and be put to great use!
Cleaning out your kid’s treasure chest of old stuffed animals? Donate them to your local animal shelters, because the dogs love something to cuddle within their kennels. Rugs are great as well!
4. Youtube has a repeat button.
For the people who hate having to manually restart a video every time it ends. Youtube has a hidden option where you can right-click on the video and select a loop. But this only works on the desktop version of the website.
Now go enjoy your newfound songs to the fullest!
5. There is a website that lists every single music genre, allowing you to browse through them, search for artists to see what genre they represent and much more.
The website even has playlists for every genre, which means that you can discover a lot of new music and find cool genres you didn’t even know about
