It is not, but we have better bakeries I can introduce you too! Invasive species from France, but has taken well to the environment.

Well as long as it doesn’t start outcompeting our native species, it sounds like an excellent import. (And yes please do introduce me to those bakeries; I love supporting local businesses! Then maybe I can introduce you to this fabulous Libyan place that recently migrated in.)

Immune System Controls Brain, Shapes Social Behavior | GEN News Highlights | GEN
Immune dysfunction regulates neuronal activity and contributes to social dysfunction

The influence on immune system on social behavior could be valid. Our behavior is a reflection of our biological system such as microbial ecosystem, genetic information, immunity and others. According to this narrator (me), an interrelationship between the internal biological system and interaction of the external environment. The nervous system and microbes processes and transfer information between both systems in order to fund survival. The processing occurs in the brain, microbes are responsible for the transfer of information between both systems (reasons there are microbes both in our systems and outside) and the immune system controls what comes in and goes out. This explains the control function of the immune system of the brain (where the input is stored) and social behavior (the output). However, there is a possibility that this is a cycle, whereby the immune system controls these input and output which in turn controls the immune system.

If this were valid, then our immune response and microbial activities will be amplified in the REM phase when the exchange of information occurs.

Took me a while to decide if I should ask this or not, but, if there was something in MCSM that you could change [eg. characters deaths, plotline, episodes, etc.], what would you change? Just curious.

There are definitely things that I might do differently if I got to do them over, but I wouldn’t say there are things I “regret” or anything like that.

I will say, however, that I wish we got to explore more of the amazing locations that our art team cooks up - poke into the corners, talk to all the people, etc because the environments in MCSM are so gorgeous and I love them so much.

A psychological study says that, between the ages of 18 to 33, we are the most stressed. It could because of college, adapting to a new environment, finding a job, finding a life partner etc. Somewhere along the line, trying to survive in this harsh world, we forget to live. We forget that there’s more to life than just surviving. We need to focus more on our likes and dislikes. We need to discover ourselves. Don’t follow the crowd, pave your own path. It’s okay to be unique, to stand out. Watch the sunrise, watch it set, look at the night sky, and notice the magic that happens when you let people be themselves around you. Fall in love, fall out of love. Have your heart broken and put it back together.
Heartbreaks are common in adolescence and early adulthood more so as compared to middle and late adulthood. Believe it or not, heartbreaks could indeed lead to death in humans. This condition is called, “Stress Cardiomyopathy” (aka Broken Heart Syndrome). Be kind to people and more importantly, listen to what they have to say. It takes about 4 minutes for a person to fall in love and it takes what feels like an eternity to get over it. We have our whole life ahead of us. Wear your heart on your sleeve. There’s so much to do in life. We have so many places to discover, so many books to read, and so much to learn. Make a yearly bucket list. Some days, I just don’t understand how one can just fall asleep knowing there’s so much to do in life. Other days I’m too tired to think before I fall asleep.
We procrastinate the most at the ages of 15-35. A study says, if you tell yourself to just do this work for 5 more minutes, you’re more likely to finish it much faster and in a more efficient way. Remember that one day you said you’d do that one thing later? Do it now. Make that phone call, meet your friend, finish that work, spend time with the people you love because you might not be able to do that later. We say that life is short and yet it is the longest thing we experience. Honestly though, it’s not long enough. Say what you want to say, be who you want to be, live and let live. Life’s not worth living otherwise.
Honestly, we are all too young to be this sad, to be this bored and to be this lazy. I understand that we all have so much work all the time. Balancing between college/school, family and friends is hard and it takes a lot of effort. Find loopholes. Find another way within your limitations. Yes, it’s always easier said than done but, isn’t it always? Don’t lead a monotonous life. Don’t lead a life you are not proud of. I’d like to conclude by quoting a very wise man who once said, “We’re all stories, in the end. Just make it a good one, eh?”

How to Break a Bad Habit in 3 Steps

You’re a nail biter. Spend too much time on the couch watching TV. A chip fiend and chronic late-night snacker. But here’s some good news if you have a weakness you just can’t seem to shake: Research is shedding light on the most effective ways to break a habit for good. Here, three simple tactics to help you quit once and for all.

Tune in to the urge

One study of smokers found that mindfulness training was twice as effective at helping people quit as a more standard, behavior-based cessation program. The researchers believe mindfulness can work for any type of pattern you’re trying to fix. Plugging into the feelings associated with a craving helps you become less in thrall to it, so you can learn to let it go.

Change your environment 

Your surroundings can encourage a bad habit or facilitate a good one. Practical pointers: To stave off autopilot snacking on sweets, for example, swap the cookie jar with a fruit bowl. Or, if you need to stop checking your phone at red lights, move it from the cup holder to your zipped handbag. 

Replace that habit with a healthier one

Bad habits tend to have triggers (like stress) that prompt you to engage in them. So come up with a plan ahead of time for how you will respond to those cues: If you, say, chew your nails when you get frazzled at work, start practicing deep breathing each time you feel overwhelmed.

☂ = giving them their [lab coat] to keep warm .

        “Oh-no, you don’t have to.” She could spend the rest of her night hunched over this burning barrel and warming her fingers, the seasons seemed to change abruptly. Not enough time to scavenge up enough caps for a good fall coat. Not like she could install a heater in her apartment, odd that it was warmer to stay outside by these fires. 

        Despite her protests, she pulls the coat tight around her shoulders. Lingering in a nice warm environment, even if it was temporary. “Thanks, you can have it back in like. Ten more minutes.”

Intersection

By now you must be in the air, destined to a new journey in a new land. Milestones after milestones, you are preparing yet another beginning. I am very excited about your changes and achievements, I feel butterflies in my stomach when I think about it, although nothing has changed on my side.

But it also makes me feel like moving further away from you. I am secretly afraid that the unknowns, the new exciting people and places you will encounter will make us grow further apart from each other, you will be busy meeting new people and adjusting to new environment and I hope I don’t become a burden for your to up-keep or the different experiences we will have without each other will make us not relate to each other anymore. 

Looking back, you have been taking me places I have never been before, challenged me to experience things that I have never inclined to try. No man in my life has done that for me, for that reason, you are already very special. But I wonder if I will ever be in sync with you, intersect somewhere where we both feel comfortable and happy. 

Babe, I know that you will be sharing pieces of your life as best as you can with me, but I don’t want to be the face behind the phone screen anymore. I pray someday, I get a chance to be fully in sync with you, happily in love and be loved.

I wish you the best, and know that I am always going to be here for you.

              THE HOME YOU’VE BEEN SEARCHING FOR.

Somewhere along the southern coast of the Final Frontier, one can find opportunity that has laid dormant for too long. This is about to change. In the words of one ambitious, young heir:

It doesn’t take very much scrutiny to recognize that there exists a tremendous abundance in assets. The weather is highly versatile, the location features all kinds of landscapes, and the soil is perfect for the most prized apple saplings. Both literally and figuratively, it’s the fresh breath of air that’s quite vital to life… If we all work together, we can see to it that Fireside actually reaches its untapped potential - and perhaps even surpasses what bars of expectation we set.

           Do yourself a favor and join in this special town’s awakening!

F I R E S I D E  is a semi-plotless group where the focus is seeing a wide variety of characters developing alongside the growth of their environment. All are welcome to join in on this unique opportunity!
