New beginning

The New Year is coming in a few days and I guess that everyone does want to have a new beginning in the next year. As for me, my dream is that my parents will accept my boyfriend and do not reject our communication. Following the arrangement between my boyfriend and my parents, my boyfriend arrives in my home in advance and there will be a talking between them. Accepting the request from my parents, I keep the distance with them not to take part in the talking. About after one hour, they tell me that they are willing to give us a chance on the basis that he should own his house in the near future. Talking about the house in the cruel reality, I feel that it is hard for us to afford one in a few years because the condition of his family is not good and his work can not bring him a large number of money. Although our parents do not reject our communication, they leave us a big problem and we have nothing to argue with them but to agree with their idea. We are very worried about that matter and need to discuss the problem with our friends to hope that they will have some good views for us. However, they give us a strange idea that he can consider changing another job with high wage and pay full attention on playing the net game with the wow gold to earn some money. Listening to their words, we can not believe their ideas and put up the puzzle that how we can make money by the World of Warcraft Gold. Then they provide us an example from their partners to tell me that if we have been in the net game for a long time we will learn more on it and most of important is that we can win plenty of warcraft gold and then sell the gold to someone who wants to buy wow gold.After hearing their opinions, we still doubt that the cheap wow gold can be exchanged into money but my brother helps me do with the problem. As a matter of fact, my brother is always playing the net game and has earned a lot of money from it, so he lets me not to be worry about that affairs.Although we can not be sure that we will get some money from the game, we still attempt to do that as soon as possible and wish that some old players can do some favor for us.

Surprising Science

While technology develops at exponential speed, transforming how we go about our everyday tasks and extending our lives, it also offers much to worry about. In particular, many top minds think that automation will cost humans their employment, with up to 47% of all jobs gone in the next 25 years. And chances are, this number could be even higher and the massive job loss will come earlier.

Are you an overbuyer or an underbuyer?

One way to limit clutter is by being mindful of your spending.

Videos
  • Overbuyers are people who love to buy — they stockpile things as a result. These are individuals who are prone to run out of space in trying to store their stuff and they may even lose track of what — and how much of what — they have.
  • One way overbuyers can limit their waste, both money and space wise, is by storing items at the store, and then buy them when they really need them.
  • Underbuyers tend to go to extraordinary lengths to not buy things. They save money and do fewer errands, however, they often make do with shabby personal items. They may also, when they finally decide to go out to buy a product, go without entirely because the item may no longer be available.
