This Private Library is the Perfect Retreat from a Busy City Life

Wouldn’t you want to escape reality for a few hours in this library?

Every once in a while, we need to escape reality and find solace in private secluded places even for just a few hours.

“The Scholar’s Library”, located in a forest near Olivebridge in New York, is the perfect retreat for people seeking a break from the fast-paced world. Built by architects at Peter Gluck & Partners Architects, the private library channels a “pure and elegant” design so readers will not be distracted from the “building’s environment and the wealth of knowledge contained below.” The books are found in the building’s first floor while the study area is situated on top of it. Such design was followed as architects believe a “person’s studies must be built upon the foundation of what was written before”.

This tiny haven has become a sanctuary not only for readers but also for people who need a break from it all.

This tiny house-style haven is the perfect place to escape reality.

Funny Short Film Shows How A Man and A Woman Never Gets The Chance To Meet Each Other

“This Is How We Never Met” perfectly captures the thought of that cute guy/girl you’re hoping to meet.

Consider me late to the party but I just recently discovered this hilarious short movie from Wong Fu Productions entitled “This Is How We Never Met.”

In case you haven’t seen it yet, this one is about a man and a woman who both spent some alone time at the park. They, of course, notice each other, and are both interested about the idea of meeting the other person.

The story is told through the narrations of both characters and that’s where things get really funny. Whether you are a guy or a girl, you will be able to relate to the characters. Yes, most of their lines will sound very familiar. The same thoughts may have ran on your head as you were hoping to catch the attention of a cute stranger. ...

This Guy Makes $10,000 Per Month Writing On Potatoes. Totally Unbelievable!

While you’re working hard and earning little from your 8-hour job, Alex Craig makes $10,000 a month just by writing on potatoes.

Say goodbye to traditional greeting cards! Believe it or not, this guy from North Texas is making a huge amount of money out of potatoes and, well, a pen.

Alex Craig, 24 years old, came up with an unusual business idea which he later named Potato Parcel. What product does he offer his customers? He sends potatoes with personalized messages through the mail. His girlfriend called it the “dumbest idea ever” but surprisingly - perhaps especially to her – the business took the internet by storm and he’s been receiving a lot of orders from various places.

Right now, Alex claims he is earning a whooping $10,000 a month because of his business.
