The Lost Boys "Sleep all day, party all night. Never grow old, and never die. It's fun to be a vampire." Truer words were never growled out of Jack Bauer's teenage vampire mouth. Just The Facts "The Lost Boys" is the father of modern vampire movies, post-1987. The Film (No Spoilers) The movie is all about a gang of wild teen vampires who roam the streets of Santa Carla, California. The premise of the movie is that it's cool to be a vampire, because they love to kill, wreak havoc, and mess with the puny human brain. Most importantly, the movie caused millions of girls to simultaneously drop their ovaries and become raging sluts almost overnight due to the hotness of the 99% male cast. Thank you, Joel Schumacher. *BTFIAU= Before Twilight Fucked It All Up. The Legacy of The Lost Boys TLB allowed vampires to become modernized and relevant to the 20th century. Oh. Well, okay, how about this? Or this. Fuck it.

Transformação do homem: finja ser quem você deseja ser | Todos nós assumimos um ou vários personagens para nossas relações sociais. As características desses personagens são criadas ao longo do tempo, com base nas experiências que temos, que por sua vez são frutos de nossas trocas com o ambiente e com as outras pessoas. Quase sempre ficamos presos a essas características como se elas fossem coisas realmente nossas . Dizemos que fulano é tímido, que sicrano é enfezado ou que beltrano é triste. A verdade, entretanto, é que essas não são características intrinsecamente suas. Quando ficamos demasiadamente presos ao personagem, acabamos traçando alguns objetivos para “mudar de vida”. Uma saída engenhosa para essa situação é você fingir ser quem deseja ser. Digamos que você é um rato de escritório e quer mudar a sua vida e ser um surfista despreocupado com a vida. Interprete o personagem do surfista. Primeiro, veja o que os surfistas fazem. Isso vale para tudo.

10 Ways to Optimize Your Normal Days Many years ago an old friend and I were discussing the meaning of life. He said, “I don’t think the point of life is to accomplish a certain level of external success. I believe we’re actually here to acquire and enjoy experiences.” That conversation took place about 15 years ago, and this idea has remained with me ever since. It’s a Zen-like philosophy because experiences imply living in the present while accomplishments dwell in the past or future. Reading this particular article is an experience, but you probably wouldn’t consider it an accomplishment… although reading some of my longer articles might qualify. We’ve been socially conditioned to value accomplishments and events more than everyday experiences. Accomplishments and events are certainly experiences too, but most experiences don’t qualify as either. When you realize most of your life will be consumed by normal days rather than extraordinary ones, you may feel motivated to raise the overall quality of these normal days. 1.

Many college students really don’t have a clear reason for being there other than the fact that they don’t know what else to do yet. As I’ve stated previously on this blog, the three-semester deal wasn’t my first time at college. That experience sent me into a bit of a tailspin. Your goals for college will likely be different than mine. 2. Once you know why you’re going to college, imagine your ideal outcome. Before I returned to school, I spent hours visualizing the kind of experience I wanted to have. This was a really important step. Visualization allows you to make mistakes in advance. 3. What about prerequisites? 4. 5. 6. 7.
