Is it OK To Swear At Work?
Is there value in swearing at work, or should workers avoid it out of a sense of caution? Experts say that doing so can help relieve stress and difficult emotions at work, and may help you fit in with teams where it's a common practice. But others also argue that workers could inadvertently offend colleagues — particularly higher-ups used to more conservative workplace etiquette. Moreover, research has also found that women and people of color are also seen as more obscene if they swear.
What Does Your Sleepwear Say About You?
Psychologists say choice of sleepwear says a lot about an individual's personality.

Flannel/ button pajamas A flannel, buttoned set of pajamas can indicate that you value your health and hygiene.

Fleece pajamas/ cozy pajamas Wearing cozy pajamas, or an oversized jumper, especially those that are branded with cartoons or characters from our youth can indicate that you are a person of nostalgia. For many of these people, family comes first with loyalty and integrity both key personality traits. It is often found that people who wear oversized clothing are subconsciously wanting to go back in time; often to a time when they were happier in life or happier in their body.

(TOPIC STARTER)... "What's The ONE Thing You Regret Doing For Your Wedding Day?
Reddit user u/yomnlo3 asked: "What's the one thing you regret doing for your wedding day?" Replies include: "Not using a cut-down version of the first dance song. Nearly 7-minutes of two people dancing to a song that was effectively meaningless to everyone else. Should have made a 2 or 3 minutes version." -- "First dance songs should be: the first verse and the chorus, then immediate fade into a party song so everyone else can join you on the dance floor." "Not telling the photographer to back off sooner. Every 10 minutes they were pulling us out of the reception to take additional pictures. We missed like 1/3 of our wedding because of it. "Oh and they never took the "family" photo." "Hiring a shi**y photographer. Every single image was over-exposed so that everyone looks shiny against a nearly black background. Images taken by guests' phones were 1000 times better. It's an awful feeling to not want to look at your own wedding photos because of how awful they turned out." "Beaches always look romantic... until the seagulls show up." "The father's speech... Everyone had second-hand cringe at my friend's wedding when his father talked about how awesome his other son is instead of the groom. I mean, I knew that the older son was the favorite but I didn't see it so obviously until that day." "Not having some help for after the party to help tie up the loose ends and tidy up and late messes." "We missed our cake! Someone cut the cake and started passing out slices while we were socializing. We also forgot to eat the regular meal. Luckily, there was a Taco Bell across the street from the hotel." "Painful shoes. My stepmother purchased them for me because they were PERFECT for my dress. I tried them on, they fit ok, but the next time I had them on was the actual wedding, and my god those bit**es pinched! I'm standing on one foot or the other in almost all the casual pictures, trying to ease the pain. Otherwise the wedding was beautiful..." "Having the wedding. Both of our parents offered giving us the money that would have been paid for everything, if we would elope with a small ceremony. "We opted for the wedding instead of taking the couple grand to have as a down payment, or extra cushion in finances, etc."
