The next optional rewirement in Week 1 of the Science of Well-being course is the free Character Strengths test on the VIA website. The test comprises of 120 questions and takes 15 minutes or so to complete. There are no right/wrong answers, and there are no better/worse answers. The key is to be authentic, so that you can derive the most from the experience.
Facebook has a new feature for its users. It’s called the Year in Review, and it features your Top 20 Moments from some algorithm Facebook generates from your profile. You may have seen it, or not have it yet, as it seems to be a gradual rollout. So look for it if you have not!
Just go to your profile. On the right hand side of where your wall starts, there should be a “2012” graphic and link to click on to see your top moments from 2012. A whole page is dedicated to it!
Recently, I started learning about dresses, their designs and designers and such, mostly starting through Pinterest (some I’ve like so far). Not knowing anything, really, about the matter, trends in what I liked started to pop out. They tended to be either time period of the dresses, by which many Pinteresters organized their fashions, or designers that many Pinteresters noted in their comments on each pin. I’ll write about period fashion some other time, but for now, I want to focus on a designer whose name I kept seeing come up repeatedly in my viewing of dresses, and that is Zuhair Murad.
