Embrace Your Anxiety By Reframing it as 'Excitement'

Historically, I’ve always been a slightly anxious person.

First day of school? Super nervous. First time meeting my boyfriend’s friends? I might need to hide in the bathroom for a bit.

It’s something I’m typically able to get over fairly quickly, yet it happens often.

DuckDuckSometimes is a Chrome extension that automatically redirects a percentage of your Google searches to DuckDuckGo rather than Google.

If you’re not familiar,...

If you’re located in an area of Florida that has been impacted by Hurricane Dorian, both Lyft and Uber are offering free rides both to and from local shelters.

In both cases, that free ride comes with a tiny bit of a caveat: it has to be under a certain amount to be “free” which means you might still have to pay a bit depending on how far away you are from a shelter.

Rewatch the Most Popular YouTube Videos From Exactly a Decade Ago Using This Site

I’m a sucker for those “On This Day” reminders from social media sites. Without fail, I’m delighted when Facebook resurfaces a picture I posted a decade ago of friends, and I like it when Instagram reminds me of a picture I posted a few years prior.
