Spooky Season Thoughts

Hello my beautiful friends! The days are getting longer and the nights a little more chilly but I haven’t let this seasonal mood get to me just yet!

This week, I can’t shake the feeling of turning 21. It’s like my life is coming together but not really, when does it start?!

Turning 21 next month, I look back at my life and realize I’ve never really stood still and took life for the way it was. I just kept moving forward, thinking about the next step or next goal. ANXIETY MUCH?

My life has changed SO much since then. I feel energized with happiness and genuine thoughts. Maybe it’s the concept of maturing and taking responsibility for more things in your life, but nowadays I just feel so grown and enlightened.

Maybe it’s the gym. I’ve never felt lighter and more toned in my life. All this energy I’m getting from here keeps me awake and I rarely take naps anymore!

I’ve also been thinking about investing in protein shakes. Aside from keeping track of my calorie intake, they’re just such an easier way to fill up that meal in my day. It’s frustrating not eating and then realizing you’re starving yourself at the end of a long day. What have you guys experienced with shakes?

Or maybe it’s my new set of nails I just spoiled myself to, it’s a treatment called SNS that’s loaded with Vitamin E and hardens your nails! Having my nails done makes me feel like an angelic fairy. Heck yeah!

I’ve also been super into accessorizing my fingers with RINGS. It gives me that flare when I talk and unconsciously move my hands around. Does anyone else relate? LOL. My current rings aren’t featured here but Charlotte Russe has a large selection and deals like 2 for $10. That’s where I’ve been heading to!

Or the thrilling satisfaction of starting a new book, CRAZY RICH ASIANS! I saw the movie and was blown away by the amount of story and slight divide between Asians and Asian-Americans. A concept I never thought about but things like this intrigue me more!

One weird thing, I find myself reading more when I’m reading 2-3 books at the same time. Maybe not read all the same day, but just take turns on which days I read what. By the time I finish, I feel way more accomplished finishing with 3 and it gives me more of a push because I have a lot to read!

And how could I forget my brand new baby girl, Venom. I proudly bought this car a few weeks ago and am still getting used to all the new high tech-ness! She’s a dream and I’m so lucky to spend the next maybe 10 years of my life with her. She’s a beauty, ain’t she?

I’ve had this dream since I was 16 of adding a pink steering wheel cover. This cover was purchased at a local repair shop for $12, Amazon would be a good place to look too! Now I drive around with high spirits, it’s honestly the little things in life. I spend a lot of time in my car driving to work, school, the mall, might as well invest in the interior!

This week, the thought of life flying past by scared me. But it’s sort of like the wine glass half empty or half full, it’s just how you choose to look at it.

I chose to sit back and think of things I’ve done this week that make me genuinely HAPPY and plant my feet on the ground. This way, I’m READY to take on my 21st birthday next month with open arms and an open mind.

Can someone tell me, does turning 22 feel this way too?!

HAPPY SPOOOOOKY SEASON!

Happiness is a Ritual

The definition of the word, Ritual claimed by Google.

“A solemn ceremony consisting of a series of actions performed according to a prescribed order.”

Has anyone wondered the key to happiness? Those days when you ask yourself when will the good days EVER start?

I can’t help but sit in bed and wonder why I led myself to those questions. I should be cherishing life everyday!! Waking up at 7 a.m!! Going on a jog!! Buying some groceries!!

Shaving my legs!! And being the best student, daughter, friend, grandchild, mentor, leader and feminist ever possible for the sake of my sanity and approval of those I love.

Wow that sounds like a lot, right? But this is a pretty average list of the small but BIG roles we maintain everyday. And for that reason, I think it’s easy to lose track of that genuine feeling of life (happiness) everyday in our lives.

Happiness is a ritual. Not a group ritual necessarily either, you’ll be happy for that later. It’s a commitment you make amongst yourself to keep light inside you. Literally a set of actions you need to establish in your life to keep balance or to restore it when insanity breaks loose.

For a prescribed order. No one knows this correct order and every order is different. But whichever destiny you have faith in, this order is meant to stay as an order and keep us from evil versions of ourselves.

Billions of people going through this complex journey, no wonder the answer only resides in you. It’s you, it really depends on you and the actions being taken to keep a stable relationship within yourself (happiness) !!

Ever heard of self-care? Lately the things that have kept my spirit running are the purchase of my new car (BMW gang!), a new gym I’ve just subscribed to, and the sense of getting my money together (heck yeah for new credit card!).

It feels new, gives me motivation and it stops me in my track once in awhile and reminds me of the good things coming my way in life. That’s key. I know I’m never getting today back or reliving the moment I stepped in my new car, so this sensation has got to last. Not for those glam moments, but for the sake of my mind.

These actions I give myself is a recipe for happiness. I give full effort in these tasks because that’s what I deserve. Neglect your actions and you’ll neglect your happiness. Sounds familiar right?

Stop what you’re doing. Think about your past few days and remember what’s been keeping that smile alive. Now keep doing what you’re doing because you’re about to ride a happy wave. I’ll be riding this wave with a glass of wine in my hand.

comment below your successes this month ❤ -Pauly

Back to Black

Hi everyone!

I hope your Tuesday has been wonderful and get your butt off the couch! Today was a life changing day as I walk around now in my new hair, back to Black!

I originally dyed it in 8th grade and continually kept up with it throughout high school but leaving for college, taking care of it just wasn’t in the picture for me. UGH SO WRONG!

So bottom line, it’s been two years! My amazing stylist hooked me up with Redken Demi Permanent in Onyx Black & Espresso Brown to find a happy medium between the two.

I also trimmed the ends and got that nice, sharp V in the back so I regained that structure for some hair flipping lol.

Gosh, I literally forgot how rewarding and satisfying it feels to pamper yourself this way. I feel rejuvenated? Definitely not going to forget this feeling, self care is such a huge discipline I need to get into!

I also had an interview at a retail store followed by some business emails and preparations for my cell bio class. In the midst of my busy schedule, changing up my hair even if just a little bit really did vamp me up! I feel lighter and like a fresh new Pauly walked right in. 🙂

So for YOU reading this, get that color or cut you’ve been dying for! lol get it?

Enjoy your week xo

How to ace human anatomy 101

Studying for any science class isn’t a walk in the park and definitely deserves your undivided attention. Yes, it’s not fair watching your friends with small tasks for the next class while you’re drowning in lab work – but I think if you get a real enjoyment out of your science courses, you’ll reap the benefits with how you can apply them later on in life.

Taking human anatomy was probably one of the first courses in my college career to really solidify the path I wanted to take. Whether you’re choosing to go into the medical field or solely just want to get to know the inner workings of YOUR body, you’ll be fascinated with the amount of things you’ll learn.

Before I jump into my tips on how to secure a slammin’ grade, it’s important to share that while you’re taking this class, if you don’t at least TRY to understand the terms and systems as maybe a doctor or a nurse, you’ll be asking yourself all the time “why am I taking this? Why do I need to know this?” aka DON’T be this person. If you try to comprehend the material in a perception different than your own, you will quickly learn it and be able to explain it to your friends! Enjoy ❤

1. You Need to Read Ahead 

Don’t brush past this tip and think to yourself it’s not necessary. You have a whole semester to learn a set curriculum and that’s it. Unless you fail, you’re not going back to that class to re-read certain chapters. Once you start with the first lesson which could be anything from the Endocrine, Urinary, Reproductive System, etc, you NEED to stay ahead.

You could stay at the same pace as your professor, but odds are they probably know more than you and will quickly read over words simply assuming you just understand. Get it now? When your professor asks you to review certain terms before lab, make sure you don’t just read but UNDERSTAND them in a way that you can explain aloud! Certain key terms will literally be used over and over again because the human body connects in mysterious ways! READ, READ, READ!

2. Get in Touch with Your Creative Side 

Studies show the best way to learn is to activate that ‘artist’ side of your brain. When you’re dealing with terms like lumbar plexus and tricuspid valve, you might need your creative side more than ever to help you out.

For me, when I’m busting out my flashcards or writing out annotations in my books, I’m listening to Lofi beats. It’s the coolest set of beats meant to calm you and make you focus at your task in hand. Here’s a link to a youtube channel with Lofi beats here! I can’t explain the amount of relaxation I get from hearing this music. There’s no lyrics or person behind a microphone, simply your thoughts and a slow beat.

Another way I allow my creative side to slither into my studying is by color coding. Human anatomy is all about structures and identifying its purpose within arteries, bones, ligaments, etc. You will receive a ton of diagrams so you can understand the human body from a visual standpoint. Color coding these structures and their certain accents will help you differentiate and identify on the day of your practical. Color coding has been proven to help people memorize complex or numerous terms!

maxresdefault

Don’t be sloppy with it though. I know tons of people that color code just to say they did it. IT DOESN’T WORK THAT WAY. Color coding is meant to make your life easier and group things together. For example, on a diagram of the heart, you would highlight with pink the valves and then highlight with yellow the atriums. There needs to be a sense behind all the colored madness! Otherwise when you look back at your notes, you’ll be confused as to why this term is colored a certain way than others.

3. Schedule your Studying in Advance 

Short and sweet. Map out the week in your planner with all the things you need to review and prepare for, for the following week. I wouldn’t consider myself a control freak that breaks down if something isn’t done, but these chapters NEED to get done.

Having a schedule has helped me in so many ways, by allowing me to study for all my other classes in a non-sobbing manner. Whether your lab comes before your lecture or vice versa, it’s basically like two DIFFERENT classes.

IMG_6842

This is different from my first tip because unless you don’t actively schedule out time to review and do pre-lab work, you’ll constantly be asking yourself if anything is due or what you should know for next class. Aka don’t be this person!

Most of the course is built on systems of the body which then dive into terms, case studies, structures on a microscopic level and why they’re important. One week you’ll be learning about the skeletal system and the next week you’re jumping into the nervous system. So it’s crucial that you give yourself time to comprehend the material before you jump into the next one. There was never a break or chance in class to go over the last system, so make sure YOU are responsible for it.

   4. Memorization takes Different Forms 

Taking human anatomy means identifying structures and the little accents that go into them. To some people, it may come easy to stare at a foreign diagram and simply memorize the parts from there. But to me, I have to bring in analogies from my life and relate it back to these diagrams.

For example, when I started learning about the compact bone and its microscopic features, it was one of the most confusing shit I’ve ever had to retain. That was until I took the time to memorize it in another way. The shape of osteons that surround the vein and artery otherwise known as the central canal, literally looks like a cake! A cake with many layers reaching down to the core with explicit frosting on the sides, known as the canaliculi  for blood flow and lacunae for the containment of osteocytes. 

IMG_6845

This may seem like a load of crap if you’ve never taken the class before, but giving yourself other ways to memorize structures other than hopelessly staring at it DOES WORK. I just find random things in my life that look similar and I’m all set. For others, it may work to draw it out a few times and label it!

   5. Eat Real Food

This tip was probably the easiest one to come up with because I personally struggled with this for about 2/3 of the course. Obviously you’re never allowed to bring food or water into lab so make sure you’re ready for the class ahead of you. Lecture on the other hand does allow you to bring food and water because just like lab, lectures can last more than 2 hours. My lecture was 5 HOURS.

At the beginning, I was so excited to just sit back, review the power point slides and eat while focusing on my professor. I would go to the cafe with my friend and we’d order frappucinos and french fries, ahhhh I can already hear my GI tract hating me right now. Well, the food started getting to me. I would slump in class, have nasty posture and sometimes even get on my phone!

So before one class, I decided to actually pack a lunch with apples, crackers, trail mix and water. THE DIFFERENCE IN ENERGY MY BODY PUT OUT. It’s true guys, what you put into your body really does come out the same way. If you eat like shit, you’ll feel like shit. The last place you want to be groggy and unobservant is in lecture! Just by eating apples and drinking water alone, I stood up straight, paid wayyy more attention and actually asked questions. This is not a joke guys!

But yes, on occasion I went down to the cafe and ordered an iced coffee. Nothing wrong with that, just make sure its not your whole meal.

IMG_6843

That’s it! Aside from the obvious tips like have pencils ready and actually go to class, I hope these opened your mind to a few more ways to be a good noodle. I’ve taken a few science classes over the course of my life but human anatomy was really a game changer for me on the route I wanted to take. I’m so happy I took the time to learn the body, the bones, organs and all the systems inside us that literally make us function on a daily basis. If you’re reading this right now, you probably have great insides 😉

Happy Summer! xo Any questions on how to study? School life? Makeup routine for school? Comment below!

New school year, new school style

By Paulina A. Marinero – 

So you’re about to embark on a new journey as a college freshie or you’re returning back to school after a reviving summer of pool dates and Netflix nights – either way, you’re almost ready to start a new academic year with promising grades and a new attitude to life.

You got it figured out until you’re starting to pack for school and you forget the most important influence to a new you, your new wardrobe.

There’s no mystery to the saying, “when you look good, you feel good” and having a positive mindset to a new school year can be the difference between late-night panic attacks and waking up early to start your coffee for a bright, new day in front of you. Dressing for success can alter your energy for the day and the way you approach people and new ideas for the upcoming week.

Before you start your first week of classes, take an opportunity to evaluate your wardrobe and the new you. Does the new you reflect your current style? Now before you make any irrational decisions, let’s talk about what it means to dress for success as a college student and what it means for a brighter, more intuitive you.

The first week of school is all about first impressions – meeting your professors and peers for the first time, you want to leave an unforgettable impression that you’re here to conquer campus and leave your mark. What better way to show that than with your style?

You’ll want to wear something casual and maybe add a little glam if you’re extra like me. Light wash jeans, bedazzled shorts, a “Clueless” inspired skirt – anything you’re comfortable in that you would wear on a regular basis. Although there isn’t really a dress code enforced at most campuses, feel free to wear your favorite tank top or keep it super simple with a white v-neck or a floral bodysuit! Can you envision yourself at the mall with your new outfit, even proudly discussing where you picked it up?

Grab a necklace and pair it with a few bracelets to complete the outfit! Adding accessories can lift your style from simple to glam in seconds. Be sure to match your gold necklace with gold bracelets or with silver, vice versa. Take some inspo from two of my favorite and affordable chic stores, Charlotte Russe & Forever 21.

look book 2

When it comes to shoes, don’t kill your feet! Especially if you live on a big campus or have to walk from building to building in less than 10 minutes – it’s a death wish and you’ll thank me later. Stick to print flats, classic Adidas sneakers or if the weather permits, wear those cute sandals you bought over the summer! Try your shoes out before the big day to see if they still fit and make sure you’ll be able to walk in them for at least more than 2 hours. You’ll find yourself walking a lot more with the amount of errands you’ll end up having by the first week.

Congratulations, you’re now college bait! Don’t be afraid to show off your school spirit and buy some cute tee’s and sweatshirts from your bookstore. You’ll be surprised to see how many people wear their college gear on a daily basis, it’s festive with little thought yet casual enough to go to class and even the gym after!

When it comes to your handy dandy backpack, the classic 2-strap will suffice to alleviate any back pain you may have from your textbook buildup. I personally carry a tote around from Scoutbags.com ($39) because they manage to keep all my shenanigans in place including my laptop, they contain several pockets and the designs online are to die for. I would definitely check them out if you’re on the hunt for a new school bag and if you’re a tote kind of person.

scoutbags.com

Lastly, dressing for success means preparing for any and all situations. Keep this list in mind and evaluate anything you may want to bring with you to class as you walk to and from your dorm room/apartment.

  • Headphones for the walk to class
  • Gum to keep you focused, it’s good for stimulation but don’t be a loud chewer!
  • Your wallet and school I.D
  • Pads/tampons: you never know whose life you might save!
  • A snack just in case you have back to back classes and can’t make it to the dining hall.
  • Finally, deodorant and perfume. It may sound strange at first, but on incredibly hot days and long walks, you might find yourself needing some as you head to the bathroom before class. As you walk out of the bathroom, mist some body spray for a fresh, sweet smell.

I hope you take my list and spin it to the best version for yourself. Of course as you get adjusted to college you’ll find out what’s best for you and what’s best to simply leave in your dorm.

Take my fashion advice with a grain of salt and be you. You’ll find friends right away for just being yourself and you might get some compliments here and there throughout the day for adding that extra glam to your natural shine.

Have an amazing first week of classes, I know you’ll do amazing. Xoxo

Dear White People: Antoinette Robertson

 *No Spoilers here!

If you haven’t seen one of Netflix’s original series, Dear White People, you’re missing out BIG time. The hit show came out late April 2017 and has been a huge success since. Not only does Dear White People dive into the world of a college lifestyle we all seem to fantasize about, but it targets the injustice and unnoticeable wrong-doings created by a society that ignores it and claim movements as “annoying”. This show is a wake up call for people who close their eyes to look around.

Dear White People takes a stand with the help of prospering future generation actors and actresses.

Buzzfeed

An actress that made a vital impact on the show was Antoinette Robertson, also known as Colandrea Conners “CoCo” on screen. Born in The Bronx, New York, Robertson has also been casted in Atlanta (2016) and Hart of Dixie (2011). Hidden fact: Robertson is a graduate from Stony Brook University (NY) with a BS in chemistry…beauty and brains?

IMG_3338

She’s smart, sassy and all around a girl you don’t want on your bad side. She doesn’t need her arm candy, Troy Fairbanks, to build her own empire but it did make the show that much more HOT with sex and lust. Her relationship with Troy Fairbanks is one to watch and analyze with situations us females may be putting ourselves into without noticing. If you’re anything like Coco, you know how to play the game right.

Coco Conners knows she’s sexy and the full package, but having to fit in with her peers at Winchester University made herself vulnerable and irritated when they pushed her buttons. She found herself rooting for the ultimate movement as a black woman but alienated when she felt like things were going to the extreme. – A daily misalliance we see in society, one that we need to build and protect for the sake of all human beings.

How do you make such an impact on camera? Easy, style baby. Coco had the best fashion sense in the show, one that I could not stop staring at each coming episode. I was genuinely excited to see what Coco would wear for the next scene! Her hair, glowing skin, to die for lingerie, matte-velvet shoes.. everything was a perfect match. Her apparel was classy and sophisticated with a touch of sexiness. What else can you expect from a character who’s dream is to work in the White House as a reigning politician? She’s a girl boss.

In an interview with Glamour Magazine, Antoinette Robertson mentioned the power of femininity and how her role played a huge part in reconciling herself:

“I believe there’s power in femininity. Some people assume you can’t be as intelligent and successful because you decide you want to embrace your femininity—that’s ludicrous. With Coco, they dressed me up like a doll every day. It was a lot of fun for me, so I’m definitely embracing my girly, more feminine side, and I love it. I can totally be a boss and super feminine and wear pink lipstick if I want to, because the world is ours.”

Teen Scoop

Let’s just say Antoinette Robertson should be leading the feminine revolution. Who says you can’t be pretty AND powerful? How amazing would it be if I got a chance to sit down and talk to Antoinette Robertson about her next move?

Personally, seeing characters like Coco Conners motivate me to get my ass up, go to the gym, exfoliate my skin and dress to succeed everyday. Which is why Antoinette Robertson is Fashion Inspo of the week.

Welcome Mother Nature back on your campus

Whether you believe climate change is real or not, nurturing our Earth is the least we can do since we’ve marked our territory on pretty much every inch of this planet. Although it’s not something we think about everyday out of our busy schedules, it seems fair we should at least incorporate easy and quick ways to take care of our planet into our very own lives.

One of the easiest ways to conserve energy is by recycling. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, they’ve estimated at least 75 percent of our waste can actually be recycled, but it turns out Americans only recycle up to 30 percent of it. That’s a 45 percent actual waste dump we’re leaving onto our precious Earth to use and produce all over again, not to mention we’re doubling our natural resource production by almost half. With helpful data provided to us, we can make arrangements and recognize that not all our waste has to end up in a landfill, we can make use of it.

IMG_2370

Across from Dorill Dining Hall at Longwood University in Farmville, VA are two separate trash bins for recyclable and non-recyclable items. 

Acknowledging your surroundings is the first step, take a good look around and observe what’s keeping your community from being a sustainable and pleasant environment. The key is to observe now. Creating eco-friendly habits for yourself can motivate others around you to follow in your steps, and the skills you learn on campus can easily be incorporated while you’re back home, or really anywhere on Earth.

For many people, recycling can be seen as an extra chore or a burden added to their schedule, but how can we make conservation and the act of doing it, easy and almost like second nature? Well thinking about it, recycling can actually make your life easier. It can eliminate trash build up over time if you actually separate the bins, one for recyclable items and the other for non-recyclable items. Instead of piling up one trash can, balance out the waste and get organized. If you’re not sure where the nearest recycling service is in your area, use this app to track it down at iRecycle, Earth911 Inc. on the iTunes Store.

That’s not all. By reusing recyclable products, we’re expanding their longevity and expanding our wallets. Reusing plastic water bottles can actually save your wallet the next time you take a trip to your local grocery store. Stock up on a carton of water bottles and save now. Also, there are numerous institutions around the country that will take your recyclable, precious goods and give you money in exchange. That’s an extra dollar for your buck while helping other companies modify and reuse products for sale again.

Lastly, if you’re a college student, you want to maintain a positive image for yourself and your potential company’s image of a quality employee. If you’re not going to recycle for Mother Nature’s sake, do it for yourself and how you might outshine the rest. It’s no secret not everyone is as heavily motivated to save our planet, but by expressing specific interest and commitment to your close surroundings, employers can see you as the one different from the rest, proving devotion to not only the company, but the environment around you. Transform yourself into a hard-working, well-rounded citizen and others will follow.

IMG_2386

Longwood University keeps a steady ratio of recyclable to non-reyclable bins throughout campus. 

A huge problem nowadays is the hesitation to recycle. Do we need to re-educate ourselves the difference between recyclable and non-recyclable items? Without a doubt, recycling standards differ throughout each community and each year, the Environmental Protection Agency is changing what’s acceptable to recycle. So stay up to date, here’s a list of what’s appropriate to recycle as of now:

  • Steel and Aluminum cans (pasta and vegetable cans)
  • Glass containers (vases and beer bottles)
  • Paper, including cardboard (juice cartons and old homework assignments)
  • Plastic (floral wraps and sandwich bags)
  • Batteries (non-incandescent lightbulbs, printers and old keyboards)
  • Electronics (cell phones, stereos and televisions)

The most essential factor when recycling any of these items, is to make sure they’re clean and physically safe to grab. In other words, don’t throw away pieces of your broken glass frame; at this point the glass can’t be used and the worker separating the products can end up hurting themselves. If you’re going to recycle anything that was touched by chemicals and/or food, rinse it thoroughly before disposing or even reusing it – that also includes rinsing your plastic water bottles too.

Here’s what NOT to recycle:

  • Pizza boxes (cross contamination)
  • Used napkins or paper towels (that’s just not right and definitely not sanitary)
  • Wet, shredded and/or colored paper (broken fibers and color-dye is not safe to reuse)
  • Prescription bottles (major identify theft alert)
  • Plastic bags and used chip bags (too much of these items can clog up machinery tubes separating these products)

When you’re on campus, familiarize yourself with the locations of accessible recycling bins when it’s time to dump the trash away. If there aren’t enough around you, speak up! There is no excuse why higher institutions can’t create a healthy, clean environment. As students, we strive off of a good-looking campus. If your school isn’t emptying the recycling bins in appropriate increments during the week like the regular trash bins, speak up and have them prioritize!

Recycling is a whole concept in and of itself, but what’s another way to conserve energy and protect the environment around you and your peers?

IMG_2380

A clean, green enviornment can create a positive and studious atmosphere in and out of classes. 

Well for one, stop littering. It’s possibly one of the easiest and quickest ways to destroy our planet. If it wasn’t meant to be on the ground, it shouldn’t be left on the ground. Non-biodegradable items can sit on the grass for weeks before slowly fusing out its toxic chemicals into the soil. Do us a favor and wait until you see the next available trashcan.

 

Finally, practice what you preach and stick to it. All it takes is one person to inspire another and start a movement together. A huge reason why conserving energy is hard to keep up with is because we simply aren’t used to it..yet. No wonder why you rarely see anyone committing to these actions, we all stopped halfway. All habits start somewhere, so develop yours today. Jessica Hoak, an environmental studies major at Longwood University said, “I try my best to recycle and use eco-friendly products at home. Here at school, I wish they would have better advertising of it and actually empty out our recycling bins when requested.”

Start your own club and reach out to environmental studies majors, they probably know alot more and can give fresh, new perspectives for innovative eco-friendly tricks. You can also reach out to business majors if you end up taking your club to the next level and build fundraisers. The key is to network and use your resources to the fullest extent. Kind of like the whole idea for our natural resources we’re trying to conserve.

One last reminder, stop sticking your gum beneath chairs and tables. It’s damaging your school’s property, preventing other students from studying and not giving a good look to your school – we’re not in fifth grade anymore.

Be consistent with your eco-friendly tricks and realize it’s not an overnight miracle to possess, just know it’s all for the sake of Mother Nature.
