How To Use Writing As Therapy
I woke up this morning with every intention of crawling back into bed and forgetting what consciousness ever felt like. Car lights from outside crawled across my frosted glass window and I thought, how can it still be so dark outside? It was 5:30 A.M. and I didn't have to be up until 7. I cursed my mind for causing the stir, and couldn't fathom going back to sleep, so I sat up in bed, feeling the weight of every obligation that has fallen on my shoulders in the past few months. These days, the words aren't coming as easily, and each thought, every burst of energy is going toward auxiliary functions, like breathing and walking. This is what the first humans must have felt like when they first hit earth: firing on all cylinders in order to do such simple things. Exhaustion is the number one enemy of productivity, and still I press forward, feeling as if nothing I do is ever enough. I can't seem to figure out if I'm in the right place at the right time or not. Some days I feel stellar, and others I feel like I'm being stepped on by God's mighty boot, being jettisoned deeper and deeper into the ground by my own mused melancholy. I guess, being an artist, you can't help but be tortured right? It's been studied, people who "think too much" end up being the most depressed, because their thoughts encompass almost everything. It's hard to move and live day to day when your head is so far in the future that your body has already given out, and you're on your death bed. I feel like I've been living 20 years ahead of myself. I am never able to enjoy the moment. I am never able to give myself any credit. I am already in the ground as far as my brain is concerned. These thoughts, this person I have become is racing against time each moment they are conscious. This is why I love sleep, because the lights turn off and the party is over. I can rest. Getting there, is another story. I tried to sit down and write a song last night, but just the thought of that entire process made me so anxious that I had to walk away from it. That has never happened before. It scared me a bit. Like something was holding me back. I have to figure this out. I used to think writing a song, or writing things down could solve all of my problems, like magically once the words hit the page, I would be a new person. Sometimes it works, sometimes it makes me feel worse, but I guess it's all a form of therapy. I'm not sure what the point of this rabble is, or if it will be productive to likes, views or whatever, but for some reason I feel a bit better. Owning up to this emptiness will enable me to move forward right? This is what we have to believe in order to move on. In order to self-improve. It's like a cleansing of the thoughts. Now that they are on the page, they don't have to own my consciousness. Using writing as a means of personal excavation can be exhausting, dangerous and completely insane, but I swear by it. There is some truth to creating a reality in your head that doesn't necessarily match up with what's really going on. I have to admit there is something fearless about all of this. All the eyes and what not. There is a freak show element, though, and where the eyes and people gawk and stare, there can be real truth. I guess it's not self improvement, it's self defense.
How To Wash Cloth Diapers For The First Time? (Easiest Ways)
Cloth diapers are still a thing to make your baby comfortable in. When you don’t trust all the available diapers on the market, cloth diapers can be your only escape. Also, these are mostly suitable for newborn babies as they are very sensitive to deal with. However, after using the cloth diapers, there comes the washing hassle. So, if you are wondering about how to wash cloth diapers for the first time- you are in the right place. We got you covered with effective and easy ways for different cloth diapers that you will thank us later. In addition, we have shared a lot of tips and additional information to keep your baby healthy with cloth diapers. If you are a new parent hovering around for a true solution, without any further ado, jump right into it! How To Wash Cloth Diapers For The First Time? Washing cloth diapers is no big deal if you know the correct ways. Hereby, we have shared multiple ways for different cloth diapers so you can choose the washing method according to your baby’s diaper material type. Let’s get started! Method-1: For Cotton Prefolds and Cotton Fitted Diapers These are the most commonly used cloth diapers. These diapers will require 3-5 washes before these are completely suitable to use. So if you buy these for the first time, make sure to wash them at least 3 times and dry them properly before you use them. Here is the washing instruction for you: Step-1: put all the diapers inside the washing machine. If you don’t own one, pour plenty of water inside a bucket and put the diapers inside it. Lukewarm water will ensure a better outcome in this case. Step-2: now you have to use detergent, any sort will be usable here. If you want, you can use bleach in case you have microfiber diapers. But do not use any kind of fabric softeners. Step-3: at this phase, wash the diapers like your regular clothes. Step-4: thoroughly clean the diapers and dry those up. After drying, repeat the method 2-3 times more. Method-2: For Hemp or Bamboo Materials When you consider eco-friendly fibers for your child, hemp or bamboo is suitable to pick. These diapers require at least 4 washes to be prepared for use. Here comes the washing instruction if you have these fabric diapers: Step-1: put the diapers inside your washing machine or bucket. Step-2: use any sort of soft detergent, and water. The water can be lukewarm or cold, it depends on the manufacturer’s suggestion of your diaper. Step-3: wash like your regular clothes. Do not use any sort of bleach or fabric softeners here. Method-3: Synthetic Diapers These diapers are the easiest to deal with. You will not need to wash these diapers more than once to make them usable. However, the washing procedure of these diapers is pretty simple to follow as well. But once again, do not try any bleach or fabric softener upon these as well. All you have to do is to use your regular detergent and water to wash these. Afterward, dry these well. The drying procedure may take a while due to the material type, but you can use these right after drying. Method-4: Wool Interlock Fabric Diapers Hot water can damage the wools, so hereby, cold water is your only option to follow here. Let’s see the steps to follow: Step-1: put your diapers into the washing machine as wool diapers are machine washable. Make sure to put the mode into gentle or a wool cycle. In case you are hand washing, use cold water to get the work done. Step- 2: use any soft natural laundry detergent or baby shampoo to wash the diapers. Step-3: rinse them well and dry them. Wool diapers may take longer to dry off, but you can use the diapers after a single wash. Do Cloth Diapers Ruin Your Washing Machine? No, cloth diapers are compatible with machine washing. So if you want to lessen your effort and do not want to undergo hand-washing hassle, make the best use of your washing machine. However, keep your diapers separate that are made of different materials. For instance, wool diapers do not tolerate warm water, be careful about that. Also, if the diapers are not new, they might have poop or pee stuck inside. In that case, keep them separate and wash according to necessity. It is better not to wash the poop-covered diapers in the washing machine with other laundry stuff. Should I Soak Cloth Diapers Before Washing? Yes, you can soak your cloth diapers before you wash them. Even though modern diapers do not require soaking before washing, you can do it if you want to. It’s better to use warm water to do the soaking process. But in the case of wool diapers, use only cold water to soak the diapers. Is It OK To Soak Cloth Diapers Overnight? It is not a problem at all. You can soak the diapers in the water for as long as you want, even overnight. But pre-soaking the diapers for 45 minutes before washing will be fine as well. If you are in a hurry, you don’t have to wait for hours to pre-soak the diapers as it is not a necessity. Wrapping Up You cannot just use the cloth diapers right after purchasing. It is bad for your baby and may create a lot of complications including bacterial infection and rashes. So you have to be very careful about washing the diapers before you use them. Now that you know how to wash cloth diapers for the first time, hopefully, there is not any problem to face. We have given in-depth information and individual washing procedures to follow for different fabric diapers. Follow wisely and do not forget to wash cotton and synthetic diapers at least 3-4 times before you use those. Again, avoid using any sort of bleach or fabric softener while washing the diapers as they can ruin the material and cause irritation in your baby’s skin if not washed well.

5 Easy Ways To De-Clutter Your Space
Things. Things. Things. They hide in boxes. They cover our tables. We buy them every day. More. More. More. Sometimes we get overwhelmed by the amount of things in our lives. And when the clutter piles high and anxiety mounts it's definitely time to make a change. Here are 5 easy ways to de-clutter your life. 1. Assess the situation: Do you have a lot of stuff, or are you just holding on to a few things? The first step to figuring out what you need to do with your clutter is looking at how much you have. Check the surfaces of your tables, counter tops and shelves. If you notice more than 10 things you can do without, it's time to de-clutter. 2. Remove All Trash: The easiest way to de-clutter is to get rid of all the garbage in your room / house. Garbage is clutter. It can build up. Go around and pick up everything that's ready to hit the landfill. After your first go-round you should look closer and see if there is anything else that's trash worthy, like papers, old files or broken objects you've been holding on to. 3. Clear your surfaces: The easiest way to de-clutter and really see a difference is to clear off all your surfaces. Go through your tables, dresser tops and counter tops. Try and consolidate things into containers or just clear them off completely. After you've cleared everything you can choose a few items to hang on to as subtle, minimal decoration. This will make everything feel cleaner. 4. Invest in some containers: Whether they're for make-up, kitchen utensils or office supplies, containers are a great way to de-clutter. I use them on my desk at work, in my apartment and my backpack. You can go to cheap places like Five Below, Daiso, or any Dollar store incarnate to buy the things. You don't have to break the bank here. There are also lots of incredible DIY's to make your containers more fun with paint, ribbon and more. Adding containers and boxes can help de-clutter and make everything look a lot more put together. 5. Color-Coordinate: After you've thrown away your garbage, de-cluttered your surfaces and contained the remaining objects you'd like to keep you can transform your space with color coordination. It makes everything look less cluttered, more cohesive and a lot cleaner. If you want a seriously minimal look go with subdued colors like whites and sepia tones. For an ultra-girly look pastel is a great palette. Primary colors kept to one or two with a neutral anchor can do wonders for masculine spaces. It's pretty much all in what you like. But the clutter will look a lot less daunting if it's in a single palette.
Scrap-booking For Lazy People: The Smash Book
Scrap-booking is usually viewed as a passtime for idle moms and old ladies, but in the digital age more and more young people are gravitating toward tangible memories. I keep a planner, and use it as a personal scrap book. But this is different...it's easier. Scrap books are supposed to be a chronicle of a year or so...wrapped up in a pretty bow with matching trim and perfect edges. This scrap book is much more punk rock. It's literally a mashed up book of memories without a timeline. It's a place to keep your secrets and laughs, concert tickets and vacation pics. When Instagram is not enough and you're longing for some tangible evidence...grab one of these. It'll give you some permanence, and as far as the internet goes, there's an existential problem with it: It doesn't technically exist. Deep right? Use a smash book to keep your memories safe. It'll lead to less stress and can serve as a creative outlet. Don't end up like poor Gandalf here...forgetting shit ya know? You can use these books to track your progress, like a planner or a calendar. You can make your own travel log. You can write yourself notes for the future. Or remind yourself of the past. Whatever your reason for chronicling your life...just do it. The therapy and happiness gained from tangible reminders of life has helped me move forward. And you can too! Use a "Smash" brand book or just utilize a planner or journal. Get some glue, and put somet things on the page. Get creative. You'll be happier!
5 Ways To Optimize Your Work-Space
Ever get major desk envy? When you come across a glittering space with perfect accessories, and beautiful natural light you think "That kind of space would make me work so much harder." Right? Here's how to get the space of your dreams and optimize your desk for maximum productivity. 1. Clear the clutter. Okay, having a few things on your desk is super fun, but if you're overrun with trash, papers and other stuff that doesn't help with your job, you're just setting yourself up for failure. Go through your folders and take out everything that's irrelevant and start with a clean, fresh space. 2. Clean up your computer. Not physically, but internally! Go through the folders on your desktop and delete all files that you don't need anymore. I have so many pictures, gifs and old documents I have to get rid of. Once your inner storage is all clean, you'll feel a lot more productive! It'll be easier to navigate and get things done in a more quick and efficient way. 3. Find the light. Natural sunlight is essential for a positive working environment. There is a reason that plants survive off of the stuff. Try to situate your desk or work area by a window for a better feel. Having the natural light at your side will lead to increased alertness and an overall mood boost. Try to move your desk around at home if you can, and find a window. It'll definitely help! 4. Pick up some accessories. Desk accessories can totally transform your space. The importance of surrounding yourself with things that make you happy can't be ignored. If you're a big fan of the color blue, buy some blue things! If you like pigs, buy some pig themed things! You know? It doesn't matter, if it makes you happy, it'll optimize your space. Need some inspiration? Check here! 5. Rearrange your supplies. This is an example of an overtly organized space that doesn't look too obsessive. Putting things in easy-to-reach places will make it harder for you to forget about them. Got a really useful organizer or notepad that you just don't use? Put it in front of you!! It may seem like common sense, but you'd be surprised what a change in organizational pattern will do for you.
4 Modern Gonzo Journalists To Follow
Although it's largely contested, Gonzo Journalism is still alive and well today. The birth of Gonzo came when Hunter S. Thompson attended the Kentucky Derby in 1970 and described the experience of being there, rather than a simple recap of the race itself. Since then, Gonzo or "Immersive" journalism has become one of the most highly duplicated and revered styles of writing. More and more people have taken to writing blogs about their experiences, and even have forayed into video. I subscribe to the Gonzo journalism ethos, and have tried to create my own style of writing as well. I have a long way to go as a writer, but it's nice to know I'm in good company. Here are 5 modern Gonzo journalists you should follow today. 1. Matt Taibbi This Rolling Stone contributor followed in Hunter's footsteps taking on politics and other newsworthy subjects. He's probably the most "traditional" contributor on this list. One of my favorite lines of his describes Goldman Sachs as, "a great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity, relentlessly jamming its blood funnel into anything that smells like money." Twitter: @mtaibbi 2. Vice This isn't really one journalist, but an outlet. As much controversy they conjure up, Vice has become an integral part of millennial media, and has given us a unique look into the realities of different societies and people around the world and at home. They even have their own TV network now. Twitter: @Vice 3. Shane Smith The CEO of Vice Media is an interesting character, who uses his journalistic prowess to engage in a greater dialogue about society and digital media in general. His video contributions to Vice's HBO show have taken him all over the world, even to places like North Korea. Twitter: @ShaneSmith30 4. I'm going to cop out and just link myself. Most of my work on here is immersive, but my favorite stuff is in my "Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail 2016" collection. I've been trying to work a bit harder on the fundamentals of writing, as like most Gonzo journalists, I value style and wit over a lot of the traditional aspects. When I was in school, a journalism professor turned me on to the work of Hunter S. Thompson, and likened me to him. I guess that's what led me here. Anyway, you can check out my writing here, or by viewing my personal blog here. In addition to my contributions on Vingle, @Patmanmeow is also doing his part to further the traditions of Gonzo. Check out his work as well. I actually was featured on GonzoToday, which is run by a lot of Hunter S. Thompson's friends and colleagues. You can read that piece here. Twitter: @TessStevens
5 Types of Co-Workers You'll Meet in Your 20's
Work is something that becomes a real priority in your twenties. You start your career, and you meet all kinds of new people. Here are the 5 types of co-workers you'll meet in your 20's. 1. The "Super Serious" Co-Worker This person has little to no life outside of work. They're all about business, all the time. Whenever it gets a little loud in the office, expect some shooting glances from this overburdened character. Watch out too, because if you're higher up than them, they're probably gunning for your job. This person probably just graduated from college like you, but they take things way too far. Don't expect them to come to happy hour, they like to drink alone at home. 2. The Social Butterfly This person is the nemesis of the serious one. This person probably has a bunch of shit on their desk and doesn't respect others' personal space, but they're the life of the office. You can catch them talking to everyone all the time, and more often than not they've got something in common with everyone in the office. This person is a party starter, has a lot of fun at work and doesn't really care what others think. They're all about happy hour and making the best of the work-day woes, they just get a little loud sometimes. 3. The Coffee Fiend You do not want to meet this person at a Starbucks before 8A.M. They cannot function without their first cup of coffee. In fact they're like a zombie or some kind of ghoul without it. The few times you have seen them without coffee, they've looked like a completely different person. Normally they're pretty even keel and do good work in the office, just don't be the one who takes the last cup, or you will feel their wrath. 4. The Sleeper This person can fall asleep literally anywhere. It doesn't matter if they're at their desk, by the water cooler...no matter. They're gonna be asleep. You're always surprised at how easy it is for them to just konk out. And you're even more surprised that they haven't been fired yet. Whenever your boss comes around to check up on things they magically wake up and everything is fine. Damn, you kind of wish you had their skill. 5. The Golden Boy/Girl This person can't do anything wrong. It doesn't matter if you're kicking ass at work or not, they're the obvious favorite. Your boss is always talking about them, encouraging them and making an example out of their work. It's like a flashback to the smart kid in class who got all of the teachers' attention. You secretly hate and also want to be therm. It's not personal, just business.

Why I Started a Love Journal
I'm single. I've had boyfriends before; I've been on dates recently. By no means do I feel that I'm in a relationship slump, but I decided to start what I have dubbed my love journal anyways. Why? Because I want to be better at relationships. I've come to realize recently that a big part of why some of my past relationships didn't work out had nothing to do with whether or not we were right for each other. It was more about whether or not we were ready to treat each other right. The distinction might be a little weird, but whatever, it's how I feel. I dumped a guy that was sweet (and is now engaged...to someone else!) because he didn't understand that I didn't want to be treated nicely all the time simply because I had been through a bad relationship before. I was dumped once because I wasn't into the romantic gestures that my boyfriend would spend time putting together. I'd only be able to give a simple smile back, and it was clear that our romance styles just didn't match each other. So what does this have to do with me starting a love journal? Basically, when I find something that annoys me in relationships, or that I find hard to deal with in relationships, or when someone tells me they find annoying about how I act in relationships, I want to write it down. I want to write and down and then write about it: I want to find what makes me tick and what I do that ticks others off. I want to figure out why. Is it really that I don't like big romantic gestures, or is it that I don't like what's-his-name that put one on for me before, and they remind me of him? Discovering more about your romance and relationship style is really important. You have to know yourself in and out to be able to fully share yourself with another person, and I think that love journaling (as funny as it may sound) may help me get to that point. Whether you're in a relationship or not, you can learn something about love and about what it means to you. So go ahead. Start your love journal. See if it helps you see anything more about love!
