Can you spare any change?

Today I have a burning desire to share with you  my experience got in the game "Spent". It doesn't come as quite a surprise that money makes the difference and is part and parcel of our hustle and bustle. You need to have a razor-sharp mind, to be a quick-witted and careful about your spending.     While playing I conjured up image that I was an average American, who worked as a waitress in a restourant and got $262 pay per week. From my first steps I came to realise that I had to make cutbacks, become thrifty- to spend money wisely and always keep track of my outgoings. First and foremost, I rented reasonably priced appartment to live in; then I arrived at a decision to skimp on the Internet and visit public library to get access to it. Money was tight at that moment, so feeling a bit under the weather, I went to work, instead of calling in sick.        Be perfectly honest, I was broke and was  living on a shoestring budget. As a result it was quite a tall order to …

How to stay as fit as a fiddle being on a shoestring budget?

It doesn't come as quite a surprise that students are always on a tight budget and around the clock are dying of hunger while being snowed under with a great deal of workload. The quickest way out is either having a quick snack en-route, buying ready meals with saturated fats or stodgy processed foods. So, how can we kill two birds with one stone -  be in high spirits and healthy and do not spend too much money? 
      First and foremost, let's become aware of possible consequences  of consuming junk food which is full of diverse harmful additives and flavours (in order to make the difference to our physical and mental health) and put our thinking cap on it. GM foods such as greasy chips and fizzy drinks may bring about spoiling your appetite,reducing metabolism, overeating, obesity, and to make matters worse, food poisoning, eating disorder, gastritis,a stomach ulcer...       After taking into consideration all above mentioned, the time is ripe toarrive at a decision and to com…

Why does our education fall behind?

It's my firm conviction that we need to keep up with world's improvement process which in this day and age is part and parcel of our hustle and bustle. To put it bluntly, I really take the view that education shouldn't be behind the times but enhanced by some reforms. So, first and foremost, I would like to give my feedback on two TED talks concerning the subject.       The first speaker, Sugata Mitra, is expressing the rough idea that modern system of education is obsolete. In this way he suggests to give a SOLE (self-organised learning environment) a go which would mean that you may not be a quick learner with razor-sharp mind, a real bookworm who buries himself in books or a leading authority in the field of science, but just desire and  a thirst for knowledge is an immense asset which smooths the way for acquiring it. Frankly speaking, I have grasped the importance of picking up any information that you will need in the near future just from the environment.        The s…

Happiness is only real when shared

Even now I am cool, calm and collected and of course on the edge of my seat to pour out my innermost thoughts according to this topic. So let's carry on) When it comes to me, I am sitting and typing this blogpost eagerly, from which I usually derive pleasure, with broad grin and being in high spirits. But what about you? It goes withot saying that you are definitely thrilled and in a state of euphoria after receiving compliment on your outfit. You are reluctantly doing a great deal of workload on Friday evening, because you are at the end of your tether. Or you are just filled with dread and shaking in your shoes because of worms/insects... Well, as you have understood we are alive when smile, smirk, giggle, burst into tears, scream...       I am such a kind of personality who is sensitive and vulnerable, and it is better for me to reveal and get everything off…
