Home Massage
How to Learn Massage at Home
After a long and tiresome day at work, giving your spouse a relaxing massage is something he or she would highly appreciate. Massage is simply the act of maneuvering the body tissues in order to relax the physique and the mind. The principle behind performing massage is the proper flow of blood into the essential body parts like the muscles and vital organs in order to remove tension and nourish them at the same time. You might think performing massage will require you a formal education to obtain a license, but the truth is massage home learning is possible!

The first step in massage home learning is to purchase some learning kits which include, among others, instructional videos and lectures. It is seriously difficult to imagine how a certain form of massage is performed without the aid of videos and demonstrations.

In addition, applying massage home learning lectures and techniques by practicing massage to a real person, e.g. your spouse or kid, will further boost your mastery and expertise. This way, you will be able to utilize the theories in a practical sense, i.e. apply the correct amount of pressure, massage the correct body parts, and the like.

Set a time of the day to take on these lectures and practice them. Without a fixed time for learning, you may tend to delay things and procrastinate with finishing these massage home learning lessons.

Also, in taking massage home learning courses, you should start from the beginning of the lecture kit/course. Skipping prior lectures and getting to your desired lessons will defeat the purpose of massage home learning. In order to become a professional masseuse, you have to master the basics of the skill, i.e. body parts, pressure points, correct maneuvers, etc.

Lastly, massage home learning does not stop once you have finished the entire course you purchased. There are serial programs which you can take on in order to further your skills in massage and physiotherapy. Massage home learning is a worthwhile activity—it is fun and easy to learn, and best of all, you can make a significant earning out of it.

Interior Design Example
Interior Design Lessons for Beginners
Interior Design is a fascinating, creative, and fulfilling field of study for anyone, especially those who consider themselves to have an eye for matching colors, patterns, and objects to their surroundings. While interesting and fun, it also requires years of serious study and practice, and for that reason many people are afraid to take the first steps toward choosing it as a career. But the reality is that no matter who you are or what your budget is, you can take those steps and begin to enjoy the process of learning and growing in an interior design career.

In order to become an interior designer, you must start by taking lessons, and luckily, lessons come in a variety of flexible options in order to fit your preferences. Taking a course at a local art school would be one extremely straightforward and effective way to go about it. You would have regular hours and be able to enjoy the benefit of having a teacher and a class to learn interior design with.

But not everyone can afford, whether by time or resources, to go to the regular interior design classes at an actual school. In that case, another option would be to take private lessons, following your own schedule and most likely stretching out the course to take much longer. These classes would be more flexible but also probably end up costing you more money in the long run.

The final and perhaps the best option left, which many, many people have come to see as right for them, is online or distance learning interior design classes. Online classes let you follow your own schedule unsupervised, only requiring that you send in assignments on time and get passing grades. These are a great way for a beginner to start, because not only are they cheap, but they are also time efficient, effective, and allow for review and rereading whenever the student likes. With a good distance learning course, anyone can learn interior design at their own pace.

For the amateur interior designer wannabe, there are so many home decorating shows being broadcast on channels such as HGTV, TLC and Bravo now that these are a great resource for learning interior design. Many of the shows have websites with even more resources for you to check out, and some of the show's designers will even answer online questions. Becoming a great interior designer doesn’t necessarily require getting a degree. Many interior designers don’t have degrees but started out in similar creative professions, such as fashion design, creative design or art. And of course, if you didn’t start out in a creative profession, don’t worry. It’s likely that if you are even thinking of entering this field that you are a creative person, and with the right training and interior design lessons, you could become one of the greats!

Scary Saw Puppett Face
Sexy Halloween Costumes or "Billy" Halloween Mask?
Yes, that time of year is coming up again, and I know what you’re thinking. People everywhere are asking themselves aloud, “Should I go with sexy Halloween costumes, or the “Billy” Halloween mask?” The answer could very well mean the difference to a basket full of candy and a cool party invite, or an uneventful night.

Does your face already resemble a mask?

One of the biggest deciding factors for most people when they ask themselves “Should I go with sexy Halloween costumes or “Billy” Halloween mask?” has to do with how they look already. If their face is pretty scary without any makeup, perhaps a mask is the better option. Or perhaps it would be wiser to accentuate these things through makeup to enhance their scariness, for example scars or deep pock marks.

Does your body compliment a sexy costume?

Regardless of what shape someone’s face is in, if they have a rocking physique, that sexy gladiator or nurse costume may be the better answer. Therefore, to accurately answer the age old question, “Should I go with sexy Halloween costumes or the “Billy” Halloween mask,” you might consider the shape of your body.

Low body fat makes up for plenty in the facial region, and in most cases after 9PM, will completely distract people from their bloody drooping left eye altogether. Here are some sexy outfits which have proven to be the most popular for those that have been diligently eating well and working out.

Popular Sexy Costumes for Women:

  • She-Devil - There’s something incredibly appealing about a naughty girl in red spandex with a pointy tale that everyone loves, especially when she’s got a body built for temptation.

  • Nurse - Who doesn’t like waking up in the emergency room to a knock out nurse in a short skirt and thigh high see-through stockings?

  • Maid - Although they never clean the room while people are actually in it, maids with the little hat and high heels seem totally realistic to most guys who don’t think about the shoes, and are supreme eye candy.

  • Disney Character - It’s sad but true; people like to fantasize about Snow White.

Popular Sexy Costumes for Men:

  • Spartan - Ever since the 300 movie, Spartan fever hits every Halloween.

  • Cupid - Maybe it’s because the costume is the perfect opening to a conversation? Regardless, an ab-sporting cupid is always popular with the ladies.

  • Renaissance Man - Whether an ancient Greek God, or Italian David-like costume with all the grey body paint, being a classic toga guy is always a hit.

  • Ninja turtle - All that’s needed is a shell, a colored bandana and some numchucks, and the costume is basically a laugh factory.

Wait what mask was that?

Wait, we already know the question on everyone’s mind is, “Should I go with sexy Halloween costumes or the “Billy” Halloween mask?” However, for the uninitiated, you may not know what the Billy mask is or to which Billy it refers. Is that the gun toting Billy the Kid, the sniper extraordinaire Billy Zane, the Bad Santa Billy Bob Thorton, or a crazed Hill Billy mask? You may even think no one knows exactly, and wonder why “Billy” masks are all the rage. So let me clue you in. What most people mean when they refer to the “Billy” mask is the face of the Billy puppet from the Saw movies.

So if you find yourself wondering, “Should I go with sexy Halloween costumes or the “Billy” Halloween mask,” then either choose one of the time tested successes above, or go with any random Saw puppet Billy mask, and everything should work out for the best. (By the way, the “Billy” mask is definitely not Billy Idol, in case anyone was wondering. However, combining the saw puppet with a blonde Mohawk might get you some points for originality!)

Brown Paper Package tied up with red string
Funny College Student Survival Kits
Have you ever received a survival kit? Getting a package full of funny and useful things when you need it most can be a great feeling. Sometimes students can get homesick while away at college, and funny survival kits can cheer them up quite a bit. There's nothing like getting a little piece of home in the mail to lift your spirits and remind you that people back home are thinking of you. If you are planning on sending a survival kit to a student, there are many things you can include.

Funny student survival kits are meant to be interesting, helpful, and amusing. They don't have to be fancy or expensive – oftentimes ordinary or household items can be the most meaningful. Try to pick items that will remind the student of an important thing to remember while at college. You may want to consider making and including a list of the items and their meanings as well.

Toothpicks can be a funny way to remind a student to keep their eyes open in class. You can throw some cotton balls in to represent the times when it will be so noisy that they won't be able to hear themselves think. Some other good items for funny college survival kits are a tootsie roll to help you roll with the punches and a pencil to write your wrongs. A button can be a good way to remind someone to button their lips, and a candle can represent the way they will probably have to stay up late to finish assignments.

Some confetti can remind you of your high school graduation celebration and your accomplishment of getting into college. Candy is a great choice for a cute survival kit because they can eat the treat and leave the wrapper in the kit. Good-n-plenty candies will wish you plenty of good times, and Starburst's are for the late-night bursts of energy you will need. Sweet N Sour candies will remind them to accept people, especially roommates, as they are. A Payday bar might remind them not to spend all of their money or to focus on getting a career started, and Skittles can represent the variety you find at a university.

A small flashlight can represent the way you find the best path through the unknown, and batteries will keep you energized. Rubber bands in funny student survival kits will remind the student to remain flexible and open to new experiences. A couple Tylenol or Advil would make a good contribution, and are pretty self-explanatory.

Funny college student survival kits can be a great way to show your child or friend that you care about them and are thinking about them. You can put all the items in a bag, but a jar is a great option if you can. Including a list of all the items and their meanings will help the recipient know what you meant by each item. Get creative – creating a survival kit can be almost as fun as getting one!
