Bad, Head, and Homeless: YZER STOP THINKING TOO MUCH START TAKING ACTION Thinking too much prevents people from getting anything done! Like all habits, changing your destructive thought patterns can be a challenge. But with consistent practice, you can train your brain to think differently. Here’s how to stop overthinking👇 ✔️Notice when you're stuck in your head. Overthinking can become such a habit that you don't even recognize when you're doing it. Start paying attention to the way you think so you can become aware of the problem. ✔️Keep the focus on problem-solving. Dwelling on your problems isn't helpful-but looking for solutions is. If it's something you have some control over, consider how you can prevent the problem or challenge yourself to identify five potential solutions. ✔️Challenge your thoughts. It's easy to get carried away with negative thoughts. So before you conclude that calling in sick is going to get you fired, or that forgetting one deadline will cause you to become homeless, acknowledge that your thoughts may be exaggeratedly negative. 🤔 ✔️Train your brain. Paying attention to the way you think can help you become more aware of your bad mental habits. With practice, you can train your brain to think differently. Over time, building healthier habits will help you build the mental muscle you need to become mentally stronger. You’re welcome! 😉 - overthinking success motivation

Snapchat built a shitty Android app. On iOS, Snapchat uses the phone’s camera directly to take a picture, ensuring the highest possible quality. On Android, Snapchat opens the camera, but then takes a screenshot, instead of telling the camera to take a picture. This means that the camera never gets to adjust it’s focus and lighting, or provide stabilization to the picture.

9/11, America, and Dad: December 20, 2018 Dear Mr. President: I have been privileged to serve as our country's 26th Secretary of Defense which has allowed me to serve alongside our men and women of the Department in defense of our citizens and our ideals I am proud of the progress that has been made over the past two years on some of the key goals articulated in our National Defense Strategy: putting the Department on a more sound budgetary footing, improving readiness and lethality in our forces, and reforming the Department's business practices for greater performance. Our troops continue to provide the capabilities needed to prevail in conflict and sustain strong U.S. global influence One core belief I have always held is that our strength as a nation is inextricably linked to the strength of our unique and comprehensive system of alliances and partnerships. While the US remains the indispensable nation in the free world, we cannot protect our interests or serve that role effectively without maintaining strong alliances and showing respect to thos allies. Like you, I have said from the beginning that the armed forces of the United States should not be the policeman of the world. Instead, we must use all tools of American power to provide for the common defense, including providing effective leadership to our alliances NATO's 29 democracies demonstrated that strength in their commitment to fighting alongsid us following the 9-11 attack on America. The Defeat-ISIS coalition of 74 nations is further proof. Similarly, I believe we must be resolute and unambiguous in our approach to those countries whose strategic interests are increasingly in tension with ours. It is clear that China and Russia, for example, want to shape a world consistent with their authoritarian model gaining veto authority over other nations' economic, diplomatic, and security decisions -to promote their own interests at the expense of their neighbors, America and our allies. That is why we must use all the tools of American power to provide for the common defense My views on treating allies with respect and also being clear-eyed about both malign actors and strategic competitors are strongly held and informed by over four decades o immersion in these issues. We must do everything possible to advance an international order that is most conducive to our security, prosperity and values, and we are strengthened in this effort by the solidarity of our alliances Because you have the right to have a Secretary of Defense whose views are better aligned with yours on these and other subjects, I believe it is right for me to step down from my position. The end date for my tenure is February 28, 2019, a date that should allow sufficient time for a successor to be nominated and confirmed as well as to make sure the Department's interests are properly articulated and protected at upcoming events to include Congressional Dad’s resignation letter.
9/11, America, and Dad: December 20, 2018
 Dear Mr. President:
 I have been privileged to serve as our country's 26th Secretary of Defense which has
 allowed me to serve alongside our men and women of the Department in defense of our citizens
 and our ideals
 I am proud of the progress that has been made over the past two years on some of the
 key goals articulated in our National Defense Strategy: putting the Department on a more sound
 budgetary footing, improving readiness and lethality in our forces, and reforming the
 Department's business practices for greater performance. Our troops continue to provide the
 capabilities needed to prevail in conflict and sustain strong U.S. global influence
 One core belief I have always held is that our strength as a nation is inextricably linked
 to the strength of our unique and comprehensive system of alliances and partnerships. While
 the US remains the indispensable nation in the free world, we cannot protect our interests or
 serve that role effectively without maintaining strong alliances and showing respect to thos
 allies. Like you, I have said from the beginning that the armed forces of the United States
 should not be the policeman of the world. Instead, we must use all tools of American power to
 provide for the common defense, including providing effective leadership to our alliances
 NATO's 29 democracies demonstrated that strength in their commitment to fighting alongsid
 us following the 9-11 attack on America. The Defeat-ISIS coalition of 74 nations is further
 proof.
 Similarly, I believe we must be resolute and unambiguous in our approach to those
 countries whose strategic interests are increasingly in tension with ours. It is clear that China
 and Russia, for example, want to shape a world consistent with their authoritarian model
 gaining veto authority over other nations' economic, diplomatic, and security decisions -to
 promote their own interests at the expense of their neighbors, America and our allies. That is
 why we must use all the tools of American power to provide for the common defense
 My views on treating allies with respect and also being clear-eyed about both malign
 actors and strategic competitors are strongly held and informed by over four decades o
 immersion in these issues. We must do everything possible to advance an international order
 that is most conducive to our security, prosperity and values, and we are strengthened in this
 effort by the solidarity of our alliances
 Because you have the right to have a Secretary of Defense whose views are better
 aligned with yours on these and other subjects, I believe it is right for me to step down from my
 position. The end date for my tenure is February 28, 2019, a date that should allow sufficient
 time for a successor to be nominated and confirmed as well as to make sure the Department's
 interests are properly articulated and protected at upcoming events to include Congressional
Dad’s resignation letter.

Dad’s resignation letter.

I know most people don’t care, but here’s the real answer.
Snapchat built a shitty Android app. On iOS, Snapchat uses the phone’s camera directly to take a picture, ensuring the highest possible quality.
On Android, Snapchat opens the camera, but then takes a screenshot, instead of telling the camera to take a picture. This means that the camera never gets to adjust it’s focus and lighting, or provide stabilization to the picture. Instead, you get the best that shaky human hands can get, which means low quality pictures.
Due to the popularity of Snapchat, this difference actually spreads the superiority complex of iOS. Android manufacturers have been innovating new hardware since the creation of cell phones. Apple only upgrades when they’re worried about being seen as outdated, or they need “new features” to push their phone. It also shows that iPhones are a status symbol, that have no reason to be as expensive as they are.
To be fair to Apple, they’ve built a consistent ecosystem. If you have an iPhone, you can pick up any other iPhone and know how it works. Android is different by design however, with literally anyone free to modify it as they want to. Whether that is to fit certain hardware, or add new features, or meet a specific artistic design, Android has more total devices, support for more hardware configurations (even laptops) and is available for anyone to use however they want.
Snapchat made a deliberate poor design decision, and should shoulder the blame for their shitty app. But that would require supporting the largest userbase in the world over their elite base of iPhone users.

It was already a bit ambitious for me at the time, and you’ll notice I took quite some shortcuts here and there, especially with the background.

There’s no particular reason behind it, but if I had to give one I’d say it’s just to suit my current taste better :) For instance, I can’t remember why I picked Snow White at the time, because she’s not one of my favs. My favorite princesses are Belle and Ariel, so they stay in the front spots :) I also love Giselle, and I have sweet spots for Moana and Rapunzel. Except this time I gave her her long hair for a change. Tiana kicks ass so I really wanted her to stay too, and I also adore Mulan so she just HAD to be there. The two women in the bottom right corner in Winterhalter’s painting seem to have a closer relationship, and it just seemed that it would be perfect for sisters. I hesitated because there are other girls I like way more than Anna and Elsa but it seemed more consistent that way. And bonus point, an excuse to add glitter ! \o/A couple of questions I get often :« Why is [insert other princess] not here ? »Well, if you look at Winterhalter’s painting, you’ll notice there are only 9 women, and so I had to stick to that.

pixar really had to hardcore yank tony’s ‘i smoke a line of cocaine behind the school dumpster during second period’ character design to replace it with a facetuned love interest from a disney channel original movie . u already kno some pixar director mustve went back to the source material and noticed tony’s busted ass face and they had to scrap that shit immediately . he was literally too ugly to allow even a trace of his original face associate w/ the masterpiece they were abt to be making . rebooted his whole ass face then gave him his dark turtleneck and called it a day smh . mess
i’m screaming at the people reblogging this and saying that new tony is generic and old tony had some “character” like why do you people think that a man being ugly means he has personality . tony circa 2004 looks like he’d piss in the bushes outside your mom’s house and new tony looks like he’d wait 57 minutes for his food at a restaurant and still be nice to the waiter because they’re “just doing their best”. accept that pixar pulled the gag of the century and gave us the tony we deserve

 of the Galaxy I and 2. The character he has shown in the wake of his firing is
 consistent with the man he was every day on set, and his apology, now and from
 years ago when first addressing these remarks, we believe is from the heart, a heart
 we all know, trust, and love. In casting each of us to help him tell the story of misfits
 who find redemption, he changed our lives forever, We believe the theme of
 redemption has never been more relevant than now
 Each of us looks forward to working with our friend James again in the future. His
 story isn't over- not by a long shot.
 ue process in the court of public opinion.
 James is likely not the last
 good person to be put on trial. Given the growing political devide in this country, it's
 safe to say instances like this will continue, although we hope Americans from across
 the political spectrum can ease up on the character assassinations and stop
 weaponizing mob mentality
 It is our hope that what has transpired can serve as an example for all of us to realize
 the enormous responsibility we have to gurselves and to each other regarding the
