The negative impact of advertisements

How many advertisements do you think you watch each week? 
Stop and think about it, once you have your answer you can continue reading.

The average person watches over five hundred advertisements each week. 
Now just think about how much time you wasted. Think about what better things you could be doing with your time. Five hundred advertisements each week seems just a bit excessive. 

Your time is valuable, use it in a enriching way.

People that own companies benefit from advertisements because It helps them sell their merchandise easier and brings business towards their company. But for the viewers of all this advertising, it's bad. We get bombarded so frequently and we don't even realize it. Advertisements convince us to spend our money on stuff that we do not need or that may be unhealthy for us. For example, a big mac from McDonald's, or a clothing commercial. We get so convinced to spend our money from all these advertisements. 

But I think you should spend your money and time on better activities that will enrich you. Like a nice conversation, working out, reading, writing, sleeping,(yes sleeping), going on a walk, etc. You save much more time and money. Now you may be thinking "I may watch the advertisements but not buy the products that the company is advertising, so I don't waste money". Time is money. Your wasting your time watching them, so therefore you are wasting your money too. 

I don't watch TV, but I do watch YouTube. YouTube has a four or five second advertisement and then you can skip. So I'm wasting my time and money when I watch YouTube but the videos I'm watching are very entertaining and most of the time I can learn something from the videos I watch, so it's worth the four seconds. 

Overall advertisements could be good or bad.  It just depends on the situation. What is your opinion on advertisements? Did I change your viewpoint on advertisements? Advertisements may be a big or small part of our lives, but it's always good to know the meaning behind advertisements. 

Expressing yourself

Expressing yourself is very important if you want people to know you and if you want to make a impact on the world. Making an impact on the world is one of those things that everyone desires to do. You can do that by expressing yourself. You see how I bolded the words "You can", that is because you can do anything as long as you put effort into it. Do I want to make an impact? Do I want the world to know who I am? Do I want to be a strong individual person? Ask yourself those questions. If the answer is yes, keep reading. 

You can express yourself in many ways. 
*Creative outlet
*Your words

I think people should put themselves out there more. Don't put on a show for people, just be yourself. You want people to know the real you right? There is times when you have to impress people, but you can still be yourself during those times. For example a special occasion or a job interview. You just have to act more professional and change your attitude.

  Expressing yourself has many benefits.
*You will feel happier
*Expand your time
*You're confident and stronger
*Enhanced relationships
*Live with integrity
*Inspire others
*Feel more lightweight

Do you want those benefits?

Just put yourself out there and be yourself, it goes a long way. 

Room tour

This is my dresser. I store clothing, hair styling stuff, accessories, and beauty supplies in here. I love the big mirror and the way I decorated it. 
This is a closeup of the items on top of my dresser. I have a few perfumes and a glass bottle with fake flowers inside. 
This is my bookshelf. I don't store many books here because I don't read much. So I mostly just use this to display items that I think are delicate and pretty. You see that pink teacup, it's crazy to believe that was from the nineteen fifties. 
This is my nightstand. I store electronics and everyday stuff in here. I like having this nightstand next to my bed so I can easily access lotion.
This is a closeup of my nightstand. I decorated it with a cacti and a birdcage. I adore birdcages by the way, I have always just found them so interesting and unique. I don't have a bird, but it's just cool to look at. 
This is my bed, my favorite place in my room. I sleep a lot so this is also where I spend a lot of my time. I enjoy having the window right next to me too, I love looking outside the window, I have such a beautiful view. I'm very thankful for my bed. 
This is my desk. I go on my laptop here and I also sometimes do homework here. I like playing with the chair, like bouncing my feet off the wall.
One thing I enjoy to look at is this artwork of a fluffy, white dog and a stylish lady. This is absolutely adorable. 

My favorites of 2015

I love red lipstick and I wear it all the time. This will probably be my favorite for a while.
the lipstick I use is here (In pomegranate)
She is one of my favorite youtubers and I have been watching her for over a year. She has the best personality, she's inspiring, and best of all, she's super funny. She is vegan and my god, she eats the most delicious food. You guys need to watch her food videos!
You can watch her here
I love to watch sunsets, it's something I always look forward to everyday. They are so beautiful and the colors are radiating. The sunsets are one of the most prettiest things in nature, in my opinion. I advise you to watch the sunset. 
4) My clothing.
I love the clothes I wear and my style. Every aspect of it. That is what makes me who I am.
5)This water bottle.
This water bottle I take to school everyday and I just love it. Whenever I need water it's always there. The lid has a twist thing that closes and opens, so after you drink some you can just close it so it does not spill.
6)My laptop.
This is my favorite thing. I do all my blogging from here and I love browsing photos on here. It's also good for schoolwork too!
