Re: Article Dump

Just some things to share:

First and foremost: USDA is releasing a replacement for the Food Pyramid (tomorrow, June 2), which is a plate. It goes along with their new Dietary Guidelines. Aside from the fact that this is just about the only thing good that's come of the "Let's Move" movement, a lot of it is just common sense, so I'm happy about that. What does irritate me is the emphasis on low-or-non-fat milk. I honestly believe that when I drank more whole milk, I was healthier, and it helped me maintain a lower weight. I don't drink nearly as much as I should anymore, partially because it tends to upset my stomach. I was full more, and ate a lot less junk food.  

That's Church - Random n'at - I could go through this line-by-line and tell you how much I agree with virtually everything PittGirl is saying here, but that would be a waste of time. I read her blog because, more often than not, I agree with her completely, and this post is no exception. 

Things the NYTimes doesn't say - This is interesting. I like the notation - "Avoid: Decidedly". I wonder how many newspapers have this?
"Brave" - Future Pixar film - I have a little excitement over this. It could be a fun one!

Do you have secrets that you want to keep, just because? I will admit that I, like everyone else, have some things that I keep close to the chest - for example, most people know I look at pornography on my downtime (both for research - you can learn a lot about common preferences by what's popular in porn, as well as new positions! = and for recreation), but I don't think I'd prefer to share what kind with the public.
I also don't openly talk about certain subjects with certain people, as a means of keeping the relationships from being damaged, so that means that some of my opinions aren't public - this is actually recent, though. Too many people got unreasonably upset about things, and I just didn't want to have to deal with that. I just had to accept that I can't speak to all of the people I know freely, and that was a disappointing experience. It's made me very wary of sharing certain things - for example, up until this past weekend, my primary manager had no idea what my second job was, and I felt guilty about that every moment. 

How to Use Ramen in Every Meal Without Getting Sick of It - Thought this might be useful for just about anyone who ever has to go on the cheap.

Your commute is contributing to your unhappiness. And your unhealthiness. I feel like this is totally not news, but it's something people really need to remember.

What is your college major worth? I'm sure mine won't be worth epic bucks, but it's better than nothing, and I at least know I should be able to wade through instead of drowning. Often, all that matters is having a related degree, and even though my degree is Liberal Arts, it's more applicable to organizational, business, and personal consulting than many degrees I've seen. Plus less math requirements, so, yeah.

  1. I don't think any of my managers have known I'm a Stampin' Up Demonstrator so I find it a little odd that you thought so much about your manager not knowing about your second job.
