This Amazing Mirror Cabin Almost Seems See-Through This unique cabin nestled in Joshua Tree in California’s Mojave Desert is really something else. Mirrors were added to the walls and windows to create the illusion that you can see right through the cabin, making it seem half transparent at times. The 70-year-old abandoned shack acquired and re-appropriated by artist Phillip K. Smith III has even been given a name, Lucid Stead. In Phillip’s own words ”Lucid Stead is about tapping into the quiet and the pace of change of the desert. All photos by Steven King Photography. LED lighting and other custom electronic components were installed within the building’s interior to illuminate it from the inside at night, giving the harsh, dull and monochromatic landscape a splash of light. Be warned though, do not attempt to approach from the direction of the sun! Source

How to Write a Book In Your Spare Time Many people say they would like to write a book. That statement is usually in the form of “I have this great book idea”, “I’ve always wanted to write a novel” or “I will write it when I have more time.” I used to say things like that. I kept promising myself that I would write a book someday. There are seven days in a week, but someday isn’t one of them. Do It Now I’ve had several friends who have told me they want to write a novel. The best advice I ever got from another writer was this: put your butt in the chair. Stephen King said, “The scariest moment is just before you start.” Making yourself sit down and start typing is something I fight with daily, even after having written two full-length novels. Just put your butt in the chair and start working. Finding Time The most common excuse I hear is “I don’t have time.” I wrote my first two novels by finding fifteen minutes, three times each day. In the morning, I woke up fifteen minutes early. Eventually, you will get used to it. Go img

You tell yourself you want change, but you’re too afraid to take action. You want a passionate life, but you meet roadblocks at every turn. At the heart of this failure to launch is a cluster of limiting beliefs and negative thoughts residing in your psyche and holding you back. You’re really just one or two thoughts away from the ability to make many positive changes in your life. When you learn to mentally and emotionally disengage from those thoughts, you will catapult your potential to do just about anything you want to do. This may sound like an outlandish claim, but you have no idea of the power and control limiting beliefs have over you and how dramatically your life can change as a result of extinguishing them. In fact, I’d be willing to bet 90% of your goals and dreams could be accomplished — if it weren’t for limiting beliefs and the incredibly powerful feelings that fuel these beliefs. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12.

Speak Any Language Fluently: 6 Study Hacks From Learning German I started to learn German after a day trip to Berlin 5 years ago. I fell in love with the culture and language immediately and decided that I would be speaking German Fluently by my next birthday. My affair with the German language eventually went from romantic to reality, and we had to work together to make our relationship work. Looking back, I now realize I could have cut the time it took me to master this language in half, had I only known what I know now. I’ve assembled this list of things you MUST know before you enter into a relationship with the German language. Each tip is titled with an authentic German proverb, so that those of you who are thinking of starting soon can have a head start! Translation: Probieren geht über studieren. It’s an accepted fact that speaking a language will lead you to mastery faster than studying it out of a book. The same is true for German, with one important caveat: You cannot speak for the sake of speaking. Starting to learn German is incredibly fun.
19 Questions We Should All Ask More Often We’ve all been there before, the lull in a conversation where it’s someone’s turn to ask a question in order to keep the conversation going. Maybe it’s on a date, maybe it’s with someone you’ve just met, or maybe it’s an old friend that you’ve grown distant from and are trying to reconnect with. Maybe it’s not a lull in the conversation and maybe you’re trying to more deeply understand the core of another but you can’t quite figure out how to go about it. The opportunities for deeper connection and understanding come from the questions you ask. Rather than asking standards like “So, how are you?” or “Where did you grow up?” What is one of the nicest things someone has ever done for you? Recently Cataloged 10 Things I Hate About Lists 3. 10 Controversial Ways I Plan On Getting Married I just want to have fun with my friends, that is enough.
