Bettering Yourself

The one thing that I hope that any reader of this blog takes from it is some small bit of knowledge or maybe even a change in how they think. Learning and bettering yourself little by little will lead to you eventually being better than you were and, in pursuit of that, I am going to throw together some resources that have helped me better myself with the hope that they help you as well.
This website has a plethora of free to watch documentaries on a bunch of different subjects. The ones that I would suggest you watch first before pursuing your own individual interests are a series of philosophy documentaries that explain some of the most famous philosophers viewpoints on subjects that are still relevant in this day and age.
The above link will take you to a list of colleges, with links to said colleges, that offer free course material online. While this won't substitute for a college degree by any means if you just want to learn something new or get a head start on next semester then these courses will certainly help in that manner. The content ranges from just the lecture notes to hours of interactive quizzes and videos. has thousands of articles that teach you how to do things from make beauty products out of things in your garden, to how to play guitar, and so many things in between that it would be impossible to list them all here. Next time you find yourself bored on the internet stop by here and learn how to do something while you spend time sitting on Facebook.
This article from, a site worth looking at on its own, details 60 small and easy ways to improve your life in just 100 days. Following these pieces of advice will see you happier, healthier, and richer in the short span of roughly 3 months.
Feeling down? Thinking about going to the store for a self help book? Well stop right there good sir, or ma'am! This page right here has what you need without you going out and spending your hard earned money on a book. You can thank me later, but right now read these tips and then go use the money you were going to use on a self help book to have a good time!
Have you ever wished there were more hours in the day? With polyphasic sleep you can increase your amount of waking hours up to 22 hours and the link above can show you how! With that much extra time on your hands you could do any number of things that you've always wanted to do but never had the time. Lurking on Facebook for an extra 6 hours comes to mind but hopefully after reading this post you find a few things that are more worthy of your time than that. I for one have been considering the Everyman's sleep cycle which would give me 20 hours of waking time that I could use to further improve myself. If I do decide to switch to this cycle you can bet that I will chronicle my trials and tribulations through the adjustment period and detail the benefits and drawbacks on this blog.

That's all for now folks but as I find more resources in my search for knowledge you can rest assured I will share them with you, my faithful readers, in a timely fashion. As always comments are appreciated and if you have a site you think I should check out then lay it on me.
