Here are 5 things you should know.
1. It’s extremely easy to learn the sign language alphabet allowing you to spell out and communicate whatever you want to deaf people.
This may not be the most effective way of communicating but it beats no communication.
2. Your insurance company might try to deny or delay benefits and you can break through the BS by requesting your policy.
Always ask for your policy, which is a written contract. That defines you and your insurer’s rights and obligations. It says when you’re entitled to benefits and what hoops you have to jump through to get them.
3. Companies like Teleflora, FTD, and 1-800-Flowers don’t actually have physical stores. They’re just middle-men who take orders, charge you a 20% service fee, and then turn around and charge the local floral shop a finder’s fee. So shop local and keep your money in your flowers.
They also display their flowers on their websites as “one-sided” arrangements, so they look much smaller once you receive them.
4. If you hear low key conversations when the a/c is on, or the refrigerator, that you are not having a psychotic break. There is a phenomenon where our brain sorts sound into something “known”, such as conversation, the sound of a gathering or such. It’s normal. It is pareidolia.
The article sums up the difference between pareidolia and psychosis this way:
“If you hear a symphony in Manhattan traffic, thank your auditory pareidolia for relieving your stress. But if you are convinced a toy doll is reciting a religious message, you probably have cause for concern.”
5. You can put non-professional things in resumes as well
If you have the talent, hobbies or out of work activities that require a certain skill or characteristic that relates to the job, you can absolutely use it as a skill reference. Companies like to see growth outside of work in their prospective employees as well.
