10 times when computers were the worst

Tuesday, 23 February, 2016

Computers, albeit amazing, can be highly frustrating. Sometimes, it’s just an all out battle between you and the machine.

Although they are painful, you can probably rate to these 10 times when computers were the absolute worst:

1. This.

2. Password? What password?

GAH!!!! #laptop #password #incorrectpassword

A post shared by Seven Year Stitch (@sevenyearstitch) on

3. Internet connectivity problems

4. Computer crashes…

5. Any time slightly horrifying messages like this one pop up:

Always reassuring. #ComputerProblems #IWasJustCuttingAndPasting

A post shared by Lisa Smith (@dinoclaws) on

6. Forced upgrades that ALWAYS take longer than they promise they’ll take.

7. Two words: Tech support

8. The dreaded cracked screen.

9. Running out of space. #largefileproblems

10. When you literally lose every picture you’ve ever taken for no apparent reason at all.

But I don't have a backup. 😫😫😫 Ok this is real. After legitimately not experiencing a panic attack in several years, I may go through one over this. What do I do?! If anything I think I just lost ALL my photos in iPhoto? Has this happened to anyone else? It became corrupted or "damaged" and now I cannot access anything. 😫😢 I hardly ever post about negative sad stuff, but this just made my gut sink! I'm all about my pictures man. And this is stuff from years not just a few years. Is there anyway I can recover it without a backup (because I was foolish and didn't back my pics up). I'm taking it to Apple Support as soon as I can but I'm desperate for answers by any techies??? #techsupport #applesupport #techie #computerproblems

7 lies every woman needs to stop believing

Monday, 15 February, 2016

Every day, women are inundated with media that tells them that they aren’t good enough – that they need to be skinnier, more beautiful, and more attractive to be worthy of other people’s love.

That is wrong.

It’s time to stop believing those lies.

Every woman’s life is meaningful and valuable. Her memories and accomplishments are worth preserving and celebrating. Here are 10 lies that woman are told every day that everyone (not just women) need to stop believing:

Lie1

Beauty is much more than having great skin, good hair and wearing the right clothes. True beauty is having confidence in who you are. The most stunning women are those who value themselves beyond what they see in the mirror.

The media industry uses photo editing tools to make models look unrealistically perfect. Comparing yourself to someone who is digitally altered is a quick way to ruin your self esteem. Don’t judge yourself based off of fake standards.

You are beautiful – inside and out. Have confidence in yourself.

Lie2

Social media would have you believe that your neighbor next door really does have the perfect life – but it’s not true. Although her house may look spotlessly clean, what you don’t see in that post is the pile of dishes in the kitchen, the toddler screaming in the basement and her stress levels rising.

People only post the good parts of their lives and hide the worst. Don’t waste your time comparing your bad moments to other people’s best.

Lie3

If you’re single and looking, it can be really difficult to feel like your worth something, if someone isn’t interested in you. Don’t let dating rejection get you down – it just means that they aren’t the one for you.

Be happy whether you have a boyfriend or not. Staying home on a Friday night isn’t the worst thing in the world. Those weekends will pass, and there are much better ones ahead. Focus on your education, career, friends and building life for yourself. when the right man comes along, you’ll be ready.

Lie4

Women can have it all, but is that what you really want? Nobody is going to have a perfect job, the perfect family, the perfect relationship, the perfect clothes, the perfect house, the perfect Instagram account, etc. etc. etc.

You don’t have to do it all. You don’t have to be a Pinterest-perfect mom and a successful career woman to feel like you are a success. Do the best you can in whatever situation you find yourself is all that you need to do and be.

Lie5

Just because you are a size 0 doesn’t mean you’re healthy, and just because you’re a size 13 doesn’t mean you aren’t. There are plenty of super skinny people who eat horribly, never exercise and let themselves do horrible things to their bodies. Just because their outside appearance doesn’t scream “unhealthy” doesn’t mean anything.

Don’t obsess over your dress size. Instead, focus on your overall heath and wellness. Some bodies just aren’t meant to squeeze into a size 2. What matters is that you take care of your beautiful body. Don’t focus on the pounds. Focus on treating it right.

Lie6

Even if you’ve made horrible mistakes in the past, it doesn’t matter. Today is a new day. You can change, you can say you’re sorry, you can start all over again. Don’t give into the lie that you can never change — you can. And people do. Every single day.

If you don’t like something about yourself, or you find yourself falling into the same bad habits day in and day out, make the choice to overcome those flaws. You have it in you to become better.
Lie7

Don’t let anyone tell you that you are not good enough. You are. You have the capability to do amazing things. Don’t let fear and naysayers keep you from accomplishing your dreams. You have the abilities, talents, knowledge and power to do whatever you set your mind on doing.

Don’t give up on yourself!

5 proven ways to make someone fall in love with you

Friday, 12 February, 2016

Here at Yours.co, we are all about love.

Although you can’t force someone to fall for you against their will, scientists and scholars have studied love for years, and they have some pretty good tips on how to get the ball rolling.

Here are 5 simple things you can do to get someone to fall in love with you:

  1. Ask them these 36 questions

Can a series of thought provoking and deeply personal questions really help two strangers fall in love?

According to a study by psychologist Arthur Aron, it can. He created a series of 36 questions that help strangers foster closeness. The more you allow yourself to open up to another person, the more likely you are to love them. If you’re looking for a great date idea, this is a good way to get to know someone.

  1. Stay close by

According to a study published in the American Journal of Sociology, proximity and peership are important factors in attraction.

Living close to someone and seeing them on a regular basis dramatically increases the chance that you’ll be attracted to one another. So if you don’t have enough opportunities to see the person you’re interested in, find a way to be in the same places regularly.

  1. Maintain eye contact

Zick Rubin, a social psychologist from Harvard, found that people who have a high amount of eye contract have a stronger love connection. As explained in the Scientific American, “normally two people in conversation give each other eye contact anywhere from 30-60% of the time but couples who are in love look at each other 75% of the time.”

So don’t look down or look away when you’re talking to the person you want to attract (but also don’t be creepy — you have to blink every once in a while). Solid eye contact is key.

  1. Tell them your secrets

Being secretive in a relationship is never a good idea. In a study about self-disclosure and attraction, Dr. Richard L. Archer found that sharing secrets helps people perceive their relationship as special and helps you become more attractive.

If you want to build an intimate relationship with someone, tell them something that you wouldn’t tell anyone else.

  1. Touch them often

May studies have shown that touching is another great way to increase intimacy and build a strong connection. It doesn’t have to be anything too big – a high five, a hug, touching their arm when you talk to them, sitting closely. Touching helps your body release oxytocin – an important chemical in building relationships.

So even though it may seem uncomfortable, try to make physical contact when you’re having a conversation. (Just be wary of coming on too strong.)
