Bits of my weekend

So my weekend was great... finally went to see Harry Potter 3D and loved it. After went to eat some of Ruby THAI Food at the South Bay Galleria which I can actually say it was pretty good. The Mango chicken was delicious.














Food

Why oh why did I get on the ride after eating.

Yes, we went to Yogurtland twice over the weekend. It might be because of the Hello Kitty Theme...lol

The next 15 minutes could make you smarter!


So I was about to throw away my April 2011 Glamour magazine. Well I don’t know about throwing it away, I kind of like going back to them for some old tips… like this one. The next 15 minutes could make you smarter. We all want to be smarter… right? These super fast tricks will help you get your game on, experts say.

Got one minute?

Test Your Memory

Look at whatever’s directly in from of you for 30 seconds. Now close your eyes and visualize what you saw. Without looking up, write down 10 items you just spied. This forces your brain to use both its language and visual areas, says Shelley Carson, Ph.D., author of your creative Brain. It’s a perfect tune-up before an important presentation.

Got two minutes?

Crank Up Some Music

Upbeat songs increase levels of the feel-good brain chemical dopamine. And “being in a good mood inhibits parts of the brain that are critical,” explains Carson, “so you’re better able to come up with creative solutions.”

Got Seven Minutes?

See Green

Can’t leave your cube?

YouTube “nature montage,” then takes seven minutes to look at images of land, sea and sky. Nature’s restful effect can enhance memory and attention almost 20 percent, a small University of Michigan study found.

Got 10 minutes?

Play More

Ten minutes of non-violent video games like Tetris quickness you’re through processes, letting you make decisions and see connections faster. Bonus: Video games distract you from anxieties, which can hamper quick thinking.

Got 15 minutes?

Have Some Coffee!

Or tea, for that matter: Caffeine revs up the central nervous system and boosts the hormone nor epinephrine, which acts like “brain adrenaline,” says Carson. You’ll see an improvement in attention and problem solving. Just don’t have more than two cups: Jitters ruin everything!

Try it… Hope it works for ya.

NEW BANNER...

Did you guys check out the new layout? So my co-worker (Marques) does graphic design. I wanted something unique that included Hello Kitty, so he made it all of it from scratch. I basically gave him an idea of what I wanted and he started sketching away. I love the LA lipstick tagging he added into the art… don’t you? (You might have to look for it a bit) Overall I’m happy… I might soon have to put this awesome picture on a t-shirt like this… even cooler on a notebook. In process to be ordered :)
BTW… Thanks Eileen for noticing right away and I’m glad you liked it.
