10 Tips For Getting Your Life Together When You’re Lazy AF

Published

on

If you’re a true lazy girl, you probably can’t be bothered to deny it. You hate exercise and effort and you enjoy fries, Netflix and romantic naps on the beach. You have a ‘live fast, die whenever’ mentality, which is all tea and roses until you wake up one morning to find that your life is in shambles. Here’s a quick-fix list of ways to loosely glue your life back together.

1. Repair Your Exterior

The quickest way to get your shit together is to create the illusion that your shit is together. If your hair is a nest of dead-ends, your eyebrows are reminiscent of a rare snow Yeti and your favourite pair of shoes reek of vodka, get a haircut, fix your eyebrows, throw out the shoes. Paying attention to little details such as the state of your nails is an easy way to appear polished and together.

2. Drink Red Wine

Studies show that drinking a single glass of red wine is equivalent to completing one hour of cardio in the gym. This is either a filthy lie or a personalized gift from the universe (personally, I choose to believe). If you hate wine, the next best thing is tequila and soda water–it’s low calorie and has less sugar than most alcohols.

3. Set Your Alarm 15 Minutes Early

If you’re always late and show up to work looking like Pete Doherty, it’s time for change. Sacrificing a mere 15 minutes of sleep can give you the edge you need to put your eyeliner on straight and unwrap a damn granola bar.

4. Hide Your Vegetables

Chances are, you’re not a huge fan of salads or bowls of raw beetroot. However, there are several ways to disguise antioxidant-packed veggies as snacks you actually  want to eat. Try making kale chips (they taste like regular chips!) or a green smoothie with cucumber, broccoli and pineapple. You won’t taste a thing and your booze-ravaged organs will thank you!

5. Minimize Your Hangovers

We’ve all had mornings where we wake up naked in the bathtub with a club stamp smeared across our face and chip crumbs tucked into our neck folds. When you’re lazy, recovering from this condition can be particularly difficult. To prevent the above from happening, take a shot of pickle juice before you start drinking. It’s an old wives trick that helps your body store electrolytes, preventing headaches and dehydration.

6. Multi-task Whenever Possible

When you go on your lunch break, take a walk around the neighbourhood park while you eat, simultaneously consuming and burning calories.

7. Buy An Impressive-Looking Planner

Something leather and embossed should do the trick. Sit down and write out all your important dates and reminders so you don’t have to keep writing out and losing hundreds of sticky notes.

8. Get An IUD

It’s a must for any lazy girl who struggles to remember to take their pill at the same time every day. Oh, and most IUDs are more effective than the pill!

9. Just Dance

Going to the gym simply isn’t going to happen, it takes too much discipline. Dancing alone in your room, however, requires no travel, no membership and it’s just as good for your heart-health as other forms of cardio. Pick your favorite banger and commence.

10. Start A Vitamin Regimen

When you can’t find the time or the energy to worry about minerals & such, vitamins are the perfect solution. In fact, a lack of iron or B12 might be the reason you feel tired and run-down all the time. Extra benefits include better skin, nails and hair!

Winning is to choose a casino and game with simpler rules

Blackjack is among the most popular casino games. It has found as much acclaim online as in brick-and-mortar casinos worldwide. It is a unique casino game in that it is as much a game of luck as it is a game of skill. As a player, you can always make the right decisions to increase your odds of winning. Here are some of the most effective tips to help you win more when playing this game.

Choose a Casino & Games with Simpler Rules

An important strategy to increase your odds of winning is to choose a casino and game with simpler rules. It is recommended to choose games that pay 3 to 2. Look for tables with the following rules:

  • Dealer makes a stand on soft 17
  • You’re allowed to double down on any 2 cards
  • You’re allowed to double after pair splitting
  • Choose games with fewer decks to increase your odds of winning

It is also ideal if the game allows surrendering.

When to Hit

You should hit when you have the following cards:

  • Hand total of 8 or 12 to 16 and the dealer’s up card is 7 to 10 or an Ace
  • Hand total of 9 and the dealer upside card is 7 to 9
  • Hand total of 10 and the dealer upside card is 10
  • Hand total of 11 and the dealer upside card is Ace

When to Double

You should double when you have the following hand total:

  • Hand total of 9 and the dealer has an upside card of 3 to 5
  • Hand total of 10 and the dealer doesn’t have an upside card as 10 or Ace
  • Hand total of 11 and the dealer doesn’t have an upside card as Ace

At the same time, you should also know when it is best to stand. You should stand when you have a hand total of 13 or more and the dealer’s upside card is a 6 or less. You should also stand when your hand total is 17 or more. You can split your hand when you have 8s and Aces.

So make sure to follow these tips if you want to increase your odds of winning at blackjack.

Why it’s so important that Hollywood’s powerful women are standing up for all female workers

Published

By

It appears that 2018 is already shaping up to be the year of women working together across race and class divides to fight back against sexism and sexual harassment. On the very first day of January, new movement Time’s Up was announced via an open letter from women working in the entertainment industry. While it could have just been a statement against the alleged sexual assault and harassment of those working in Hollywood, this was a message of solidarity to all “sisters”.

Some very powerful women in the entertainment industry created Time’s Up, but this is not about personal gain – they are using their status to help the disempowered. Time’s Up is all about high profile women using their privilege to highlight and counter sexual discrimination against all women in employment, whatever industry they are in.

The movement is the work of more than 300 female professionals from the fields of television, film and theatre, including producers, actresses, writers and directors. Just a selection of the starry names leading and contributing to the initiative are Emma Stone, Natalie Portman, Cate Blanchett, Ashley Judd, America Ferrera, Rashida Jones, Selena Gomez, Reese Witherspoon, Kerry Washington, Eva Longoria and Ellen Page, as well as Donna Langley, the chairwoman of Universal Pictures, and top lawyers Nina L. Shaw and Tina Tchen. As the days have gone on, more notable women have been publicly adding their names to the campaign and contributing to the fund, too, using the Twitter hashtag #TIMESUP.

Hollywood’s feminists have previously been accused of representing an elitist group, who are far removed from the struggles of ordinary, less glamorous women. The Time’s Up movement is a serious attempt to counter these accusations through showing solidarity with working women of all backgrounds and ethnicities.

Their aim, is to raise $15m for a legal defense fund that can benefit low income victims of sexual misconduct. They also want to campaign for new legislation to protect women from harassment, and work towards gender parity at studios and talent agencies. A request has also been issued for celebrities to raise awareness by wearing black while walking the red carpet at the Golden Globe awards on January 7.

All women

The campaign’s cross class solidarity was prompted by a letter of support from the predominantly Latina Alianza Nacional de Campesinas. This national female farm workers organisation wrote to the women of Hollywood who had spoken out against sexual abuse following allegations against Harvey Weinstein and others.

In a moving section of their letter, the farm workers wrote:

We do not work under bright stage lights or on the big screen. We work in the shadows of society in isolated fields and packinghouses that are out of sight and out of mind for most people in this country. Your job feeds souls, fills hearts and spreads joy. Our job nourishes the nation with the fruits, vegetables and other crops that we plant, pick and pack.

Even though we work in very different environments, we share a common experience of being preyed upon by individuals who have the power to hire, fire, blacklist and otherwise threaten our economic, physical and emotional security.

While the farm workers might be expected to level accusations of elitism against their wealthy sisters, they stood with them. Despite the enormous gulf in social and economic status, they offered their support – “Please know that you’re not alone. We believe and stand with you.”

This act of solidarity clearly touched the entertainment professionals who have, through the Time’s Up movement, taken the first concrete steps to support poor working women. The Time’s Up letter mirrors the language used by Alianza, while intiatives like the legal defence fund are a clear demonstration that this is more than just a PR exercise

To the members of Alianza and farmworker women across the country, we see you, we thank you, and we acknowledge the heavy weight of our common experience of being preyed upon, harassed, and exploited by those who abuse their power and threaten our physical and economic security.

This collective action taken by so many women in the film, television and theatre industries is unprecedented. Using the celebrity status created by the very industry in which they have suffered might just be the best way to seek to protect all women from abuse, harassment and sexism​.
