Term Paper Writing in Grad School is Like Giving Birth

Term Paper Writing in Grad School is Like Giving Birth

I’m no stranger to higher education. Since 2005, I’ve gotten an Associate’s of Arts in General Studies, a BS in IT, a Master’s of Fine Arts, a Master’s in English Literature, and a Certificate in College Teaching. Plus I’ve completed 36 hours of doctoral work in Adult and Post-Secondary Education. Yes, I’ve been busy and have written a lot of term papers all these years.

However, I was out of higher education since September of last year, and I restarted my search for more knowledge (and more term papers to hang on my wall) in June when I started working on a Master’s of Fine Arts in Creative Writing. And that’s when I realized that grad school is like giving birth.

First, it’s the kind of pain you forget. You don’t realize quite how hard it is until you’ve back in the swing of things, realizing that the pain is there, it’s real, and it’s not going away until you force something out of yourself (like a thesis).

Second, you don’t realize how many complications there can be. You go in with a plan. You won’t need medication for pain; it’ll be an in and out procedure, taking the minimum time, and you’ll feel great when it is done. Yeah. Right.

Sure, you can check out all the college term paper guides, all the comic strips (Ph.D.), all the materials that people put out there for you. And then you realize that all experiences are unique, and all that advice did little to nothing for you.

Fourth, all your friends who’ve done it before will try to reassure you into doing it, too. They’ll tell you how cool it is. How it will change you life. How it’s the best money you’ll ever spend.

Fifth, those same friends will also demand that you listen while they regale you with horror experiences about the experience. “Oh my god, the teacher tried to fail me, and then I had to appeal my grade, and then it took four years instead of two….”

Sixth, it’s bloody expensive. Even if you have some help paying the bills (insurance is just the same as student loans and grants, right?), in the end, you’re poor, even if you are richer for the experience.

Finally, you don’t emerge unscathed. You will walk away with something new. Instead of a baby, all you have is a framed diploma hanging on a wall (or maybe a ring you’ve blown some of those expensive dollars on), but you know things you never knew before, you’ve had experiences you wouldn’t have had otherwise, and you’re at a completely different part in your life.

So now that I am back in graduate school and will have to write term papers again, I’m remembering that pain, but just like all those mothers who say, “Wait, I’m not done yet – just one more baby!”, here I am, giving birth.

Venus Factor Controls Addiction to Food and Obesity

Can Venus Factor Control Addiction to Food and Obesity?

The term “addiction” is loaded with meaning. In the context of food, some people state the use of this term is a little unfair. I prefer to speak of addiction to food because I find that this expression makes splendid idea that there are some people tend to consume food compulsively. For these people, it is irresistible consumer particular food in large doses that is harmful to their health. Addiction to food can be as real as addiction to any other substance. Imagine a person who is no longer able to dispense with consumption of donuts in his everyday life. He feels powerless over his “need” to consistently consumer donuts and feels powerless over his repeated and excessive food need.

How this addiction to food is set up?

The impact of food on the brain is a topic that is quite familiar to me because I fight each day to not be the victim of food that is toxic to the proper functioning of my body. Addiction to food can occur in two forms: either as a physical dependence or as a psychological dependence. In the case of addiction to food, it is the effect of high blood glucose that ‘boosts’ mind and body.

Food intake stimulates brain and production of hormones (dopamine and serotonin). This induces a state of well-being. If you have a physical dependence vis-à-vis food, it is the state of well-being that you need to detach yourself from. Addiction to food as a psychological addiction is much more complex. In this case, food intake is a way to find comfort when you’re depressed sad or bored.

How to break your addiction to food?

The bad news is that there is no single answer to this question. Each person suffering from addiction to food could be a different one from the other. On the bright side, you have within you the answer to this question. You must find out the source of your addiction. For you, this source may or may not be obvious. The key is to find and defuse.

If you are in this situation, do not try to diet. Try to resolve the psychological conflict that lies at the root of your addiction to food. Firstly, you must get out of your addiction to food. Here two most effective ways of getting rid of food addiction:

1. Keep a food diary – Studies have shown that keeping a journal that lists everything you eat and drink can reduce your consumption of food by 30%. This method will also motivate you by enabling you to track of your progress. This will give you clues about the sources of your addiction to food.

2. Activate your Leptin reserves – Leptin is a hormone that regulates craving of food in the human body (this is the reason it is often called ‘satiety hormone’). You can activate leptin hormone in your body by taking an over-the-counter supplement Venus Factor. Venus Factor naturally regulates your appetite and will eliminate addiction on food in the most natural manner.

Following the above mentioned two steps will ensure that you no longer consume food compulsively and will shed those extra pounds from your waistline.

Essay Writing Services How to Find the Best

Essay Writing Services: Elements to Finding Trustworthy Companies

With the explosion of fake essay writing services, it pays to be sure of the company with which you are entrusting your schoolwork. Getting trapped with these deceitful organizations will not only teardown your academic standing for the concerned class, there is also a great possibility that it can ruin your academic reputation in the long run. And so, with those negative implications in mind, here is a list of elements to help you in searching and identifying the professional companies amidst the rotten apples.

The Unique Selling Proposition

Before venturing into the actual business, a proficient essay writing service should first have the foresight of reflecting what it could uniquely offer for the market. What can a particular custom essay writing service present that will make it positively standout from its competitors? Ask that question and prepare to listen, as well as constructively criticize, the imminent marketing pitch of the company.

The Credentials of the Assigned Writer

It has been a common claim of essay writing services that their writers are all certified Master and Ph.D. degree holders. With that, you must have the necessary time to put all these to the test. Explain your requirements for the paper and then grill the customer support staff on the background of the writer that will probably be assigned to you. Ask about the writer’s age, interests, acquired diploma or degree, attended university and other notable accomplishments. In this way, you’ll be more equipped to assess and pinpoint the most-qualified writer to work on your essay.

Company Location

To prevent getting a company that’s headquartered in countries where English is only a second language, search out the company’s location. Indeed, the company should have an accurate office address and corresponding contact information. If the company has asserted that its business functions in and for the United States, then the office address and contact numbers should be coming from the United States.

Guarantees: Privacy, Deadline, Revision, Refund

Last but not the least, you must critically study the guarantees of these essay writing services. Does a privacy policy swear to the utmost confidentiality in terms of essay ownership and other personal information? Is there a rule that the company must strictly follow the agreed upon deadline? Is there a revision clause if ever the customs essay did not quite meet your standards? If all else fails, is there a refund warranty? You must learn all these to ensure that your customs essay and essay writing service will truly be a pleasant experience.

Venus Factor Can lack of sleep increase your weight

Venus Factor Lack of sleep increases your weight: true or false?

I find it really appalling that a vast majority of people who spend hours at treadmill are completely unaware of any link between sleep and weight. Numerous studies have already shown that there is a clear link between weight gain and lack of sleep.

venus factor weight loss and sleep factorLack of sleep makes you more inclined to eat

Several studies have indicated lack of sleep being correlated with weight gain. On average, women tend to eat 329 calories more when they sleep deprived as compared to when they are well rested. On the other hand, men eat tend to consume 263 calories higher than their routine.

Why do you eat more when you’re tired?

You tend to eat more with lack of sleep because sleep deprivation affects certain hormones, especially those which have the function of regulating the appetite. The single most important hormone among them is leptin hormone. We will discuss about this hormone is later part of the blog.

Excessive sleep is not beneficial for you either

By reading the above mentioned facts, you might be tempted to sleep too much. Unfortunately, too long sleepers also tend to gain weight. The body tends to consume lesser calories owing to being in state of rest. However, given contemporary lifestyles, people who tend to gain weight due to lack of sleep are far more than people who tend to oversleep.

Conclusion

If you already have a few extra pounds and you feel that you have a lack of sleep, I warmly recommend you to sleep a little more each night. In general, a healthy sleep is a guarantee of a certain well-being and good health, including limiting your weight gain. It is also important that you identify and eliminate stress or nervousness that might be preventing you from sleeping well. In addition, you can correct hormonal imbalances associated with obesity by taking a leptin supplement, Venus Factor. Venus factor is a revolutionary product which activates leptin hormone contained within human body to normalize appetite and burn fat reserves. Contemporary life styles are so hectic that leptin reserves in human body remain dormant resulting in obesity. Venus Factor has, thus, become essential intake to bring a natural order to human body.
