BGU: Ending Summer On A High Note-7 Day Travel Someplace New Challenge


Courtesy of Freedigitalphotos.net



Is 7 days enough time to create a lasting change? Well, I believe that 7 days of effort and dedication can create just enough space to change our perspective. A different perspective can enable us to create lasting change.

The tasks listed in the 7 day challenge may appear on the outset to be too simplistic. However, simple changes are often the catalyst for bigger ones. Students will need a notebook and writing utensil for this course. The notepad feature in a mobile device will also work.



Day 1-Spend a day touring ethnic and retail food stores.

Day 2-Take a day trip 2 hours outside of your town or better yet spend the whole weekend there.

Day 3-Enroll in an foreign language course and start practicing right way.

Day 4-Apply/renew your passport (if applicable) and investigate flights/travel service.

Day 5-Host a travel themed party.

Day 6--Participate in  a walking tour of your town or grab a couple of friends and host one of your own.

Day 7-Ride the bus or the train to work (if possible) and/or to run errands.

Bougie Girl Univeristy:Building A Room On A Budget-Paint Is My New BFF

Over the years, I have had a love-hate relationship with paint. In my prior experiences, painting projects never quite turned out right. Either I slathered too much paint on an object or not enough. As my income increased, so did my tendency to avoid DIY painting projects of any kind.

My living room decor is comprised of red, black, and white. However, my TV stand/entertainment center did not coordinate with my living at all. I contemplated replacing it with a black one. But, the comparable ones were a couple hundred dollars. I ruled out searching Craigslist and other secondhand resources due to lack of time. 
As time wore on, it became clearer to me that my best option in this scenario was to paint this piece of furniture black. Luckily, I have a fenced in backyard and a seemingly never-ending roll of plastic sheeting which has acted as a barrier between my project and the patio.

Here is my list of  suggestions for spray painting furniture:
