"I rarely say this to people who aren't me, but you have got to calm down! Bloody hell!" -Emily, The Devil Wears Prada (portrayed by Emily Blunt)
HERE! Here! It is the middle of the week and we are tired from whatever we are facing in our lives. Did you know a short break would increase your work performance by some blah blah percent? It's true, I read it somewhere in the internet and based on experiences, it is definitely effective.
Let me shove down your throats some really feel good, stress busting, LOLs, ROFLs, and LMAOs videos and sites: Youtube channel: SPIT (Silly People's Improv Theater) Manila's channel-Philippines' premier Improv theater is here to rescue you from all your stress! Since the day I watched their highly energetic and witty performance in Silliman University's Luce Auditorium, twice, I simply wished that I could relieve that experience again. Voila! They have a Youtube channel where you could enjoy their performance. For beginners, Improv theater is an unscripted play wherein the actors ask the audience for suggestions in a series of 'games.'
The ensemble then makes up skits out of these suggestions.
In their channel you find a good deal of Improv that will keep you laughing like crazy. Ever since I discovered their channel, I have been suspected of being "crazy" in the office.
For a classic SPIT performance I recommend: Manila Improv Festival - Day 1 - Performances (Part 3).
Youtube video: nigahiga's How to Sing Like Your Favorite Artists
-With more than 13 million views, this feel-good video teaches the audience how to sing like your favorite artist (duh!).
I don't know if I have seen anything like this, but this one was creatively done and put the scenes together. Artists like T-Pain, Skrillex, and Justin Timberlake are featured in this video. For you aspiring singers, this is the video to watch.
Website: 9GAG (www.9gag.com)
-If you have not heard of 9GAG, you are either away from civilization without internet access for years, or you simply have not heard of it. Entertaining internet memes, gifs, quotes, videos, and etc. are the contents of the site. This is the site to go to if you just want to kill the time or simply take a break.
Warning though, the site may contain contents which are not relatable to all, so keep an open mind if you go here. Other than that, you'll have fun here.
Reads: Oh My Disney (blogs.disney.com/oh-my-disney/)
- No one is ever too old for Disney! Even if you are the CEO of a company, the general manager of a hotel, the drop dead gorgeous hunk of your university, or a beauty queen this is the blog to go if you are stressed or tired. Despite the "kiddy" feel of the blog, you will find yourself enjoying reading their light articles. Next thing you know, you find yourself smiling and relieved. It may have something to do with the magic touch Disney has. For those who grew up with Disney films, you will feel an overwhelming sense of nostalgia.
And it's a wrap! Enjoy your week and take your breaks. I leave you this thought provoking quote from Finding Nemo:
"Wow. I wish I could speak whale." - Dory
