Its been about a 20 year movement to start High School later has gained some movement in some communities
Hundreds of schools around the country are respecting the accumulating research on the adolescent body clock
In the last 2 years high schools in Long Beach CA, Stillwater Oklahoma, Decatur Georgia, Glen Falls NY, Connecticut, North Carolina, Kentucky, and Minnesota have adopted the new time change. The Seattle school board will vote this month to implement the time change.
Research has found that the later a school’s start time, the better off the students were on many subjects – including mental health, car crash rates, attendance, and (in some schools) grades and standardized test scores
Researchers have found during adolescence teenagers who regularly sleep 8 to 9 hours of sleep learn better and are less likely to be tardy, get into fights, or sustain athletic injuries
Sleeping well can also help teenagers moderate their tendency toward impulsive or risky decision making
Some schools are pushing start times back to 9am and ending school around 4:05pm

- In January the brand used a photo of a pregnant woman to advertise a pulse size dress
- Last April the brand was criticized for calling the color of a pulse sized dress “manatee grey” while the same shade is called “dark heather grey” in regular sizes
I’ve been doing my nails myself lately. Partly because I want to save money, and because I’m tired of the same old nail polish. No one does fun designs anymore. It seems weird to say, since I live in San Francisco, but I haven’t found a go-to nail salon for designs on natural nails. If you know me your not surprised to learn I decided to do them myself.
I went to Sally’s yesterday and purchased about $30 worth of nail supplies, nail doters, out the door fast drying top coat, nail files and more. Today I took my time and put cute pink polka dots on my nails.
It’s not a perfect job, but I am very happy and proud of myself.
More DIY nail designs to come!
3 different shades of pink (or whatever color you decided on)
Quality fast drying top coat
(because I never have the patience to wait for my nails to dry)
A nail doter
Paint your nails with the darkest pink shade you have
I did two coats to make sure it looked even
Use your nail doter and make dots on your nails, leaving room for more dots in another color
Use your last color and fill in the rest of your nails with dotting technique
It was hard to get a good picture
because my top coat is so shinny
This was a very simple design and I love it
That’s all today folks
Enjoy your day!
