You SHOULD Date Someone Who Will..

  • wake up at 4am just to listen to you talk about a bad dream you just had
  • tease you for little things just to apologize six million times when you act upset
  • be nervous to kiss you for the first time because they don’t want to fuck up
  • touch your butt
  • offer to buy you a book that you absolutely love, and insist when you tell them no
  • watch your favorite movies with you even if they don’t like them
  • let you give them too much information and just listen to you talk for hours
  • stay up until you fall asleep just because they want to talk to you
  • share your love for dogs
  • talk about animals with you for hours
  • make you laugh even if it’s 2:30am and you’re laying in bed crying because you sat there and over thought
  • reassure you that they care and will always be there for you
  • tell you that they think you’re cute when you get angry at a video game
  • laugh with you
  • claim to not know what you’re talking about just so they can watch as you struggle to explain it just to tell you they already know and just think you’re adorable

Most importantly, date someone who makes you happy.

The 20 Best Cartoons of the 90’s

The 90’s were a golden age of cartoons. We had a blast putting together the 20 best, and we’re sure this list will inspire some discussion. Our only criteria was that the cartoon had to start in the 90’s, meaning a couple of very late in the decade entries were still eligible. We did make a small exception for one show, but we think you’ll agree it was warranted. Enjoy!

20. Darkwing Duck

Production Period: 1991-1995

This Disney smash followed Drake Ballard and his alter-ego, Darkwing Duck. Darkwing and his adopted daughter, Gosalyn Mallard resided in the town of St. Canard and used their powers to perform good acts all over their town. Darkwing Duck was a spin off of the Disney Series Duck Tales.

19. Doug

Production Period: 1991-1994, later 1996-1999

Doug Funnie and his best friend Skeeter got into all kind of adventures in the fictional town of Bluffington. Alongside Doug’s dog Porkchop, the trio got into all kind of trouble. Although the show eventually switched from Nickelodeon to Disney, it ran for a total of 116 episodes and even spawned one feature film.

18. Talespin

Production Period: 1990-1994

Using characters adapted from the 1967 movie, The Jungle Book, Talespin was set in the town of Cape Suzette. Baloo the Bear is out of work until he lands a job as a pilot. An orphan boy and former air pirate named Kit Cloudkicker attaches to Baloo and becomes his navigator. The pair share their adventures as Baloo becomes a permanent fixture in the child’s life.

17. Rocko’s Modern Life

Production Period: 1993-1996

Rocko’s Modern life followed the life of wallaby Rocko. The show, which was more adult than anyone could have imagined, was full of sexual innuendos and was written by a man who had no experience with cartoons or kids. After 52 episodes, the show called it quits, but the unique animation and brilliant storylines earned it a place on our list.

16. Pinky and The Brain

Production Period: 1995-1999

Originally starting as a recurring segment on the hit show Animaniacs, Pinky and The Brain finally landed their own show in 1995. Pinky and Brain are genetically enhanced laboratory mice who reside in a cage in the Acme Labs research facility. Each episode involves one of Brain’s plans for world domination with Pinky’s assistance, and the ultimate failure of that plan. The series took home several Emmys, including the 1996 Award for Best Animated series.

15. The Critic

Production Period: 1994-1995

The Critic focused on movie-critic Jay Sherman, who gained a reputation for hating most films he saw. The Critic brought satire to the masses, in his negative review of each film, frequently offering a list of diseases he would rather have than seeing a movie again. The show ran for only 2 seasons, getting canceled after just 23 episodes. We think it was just a little too brilliant for it’s time.

14. Tiny Toon Adventures

Production Period: 1990-1995

Another animated venture by the great Steven Spielberg, Tiny Toon Adventures followed the toons at Acme Acres. Following the everyday lives of characters set to resemble Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Sylvester the Cat and Elmer Fudd, they attended school at Acme Looniversity, where they learned how to be funny. Tiny Toon Adventures took home 2 different Daytime Emmy Awards for Animated Show and is ranked 41st in the Top 100 Animated TV Shows.

13. Bobby’s World

Production Period: 1990-1998

Bobby’s World was truly a unique show. Created by Howie Mandel, the world was shown through four-year-old Bobby Generic’s over-imaginative eyes. Bobby faced the same trials as most young kids, but dealt with it through comedy and laughter. The show ended its run on February 23 1998 after an 80 episode run. FOX Kids has released some episodes on DVD, and even created a game based on the intellectual property.

12. Animaniacs

Production Period: 1993-1998

Animaniacs was presented by Steven Spielberg and was the second highest rated cartoon in the 2–11 and children ages 6–11 demographics. The storyline followed The Warners, Yakko, Wakko, and Dot, three cartoon stars from the 1930s that were locked away in the Warner Bros. water tower until the 1990s. Upon their escape, they often interacted with some of the human characters working at the studio. The Animanics took home several awards, including multiple Daytime Emmy Awards. It also comes in at #17 on the All-Time Best Cartoon Lists.

11. King of the Hill

Production Period: 1997-2009

King of the Hill follows the Hills, a Methodist family from Texas, and their mundane, everyday sort of life. Since it’s creation in 97, King of the Hill has been nominated for 7 Emmy’s with 2 wins, and was even named one of Time Magazines Top 100 Television shows of all times. ‘Hill’ was recently canceled to make way for ‘The Cleveland Show’ (a Family Guy spin off), but the show finishes as one of the longest running prime time animated shows of all time.

10. Space Ghost Coast to Coast

Production Period: 1994-2004

Space Ghost Coast to Coast was one of the most refreshing and inventive cartoons to come out of the nineties. Set up like an animated talk show, the series brought back 60’s cartoon Space Ghost as the awkward, and sometimes painful show’s host. Space Ghost’s question often left the guests feeling confused and the audience was sometime led to believe the guests didn’t even realize they were on a talk show. The cartoon was even equipped with a laugh track. Space Ghost opened up the network to other “talk show” concepts, which eventually made the way for spin offs like Cartoon Planet and The Brak Show.

9. The Tick

Production Period: 1994-1996

The Tick is one of the animated series that didn’t run for very long, but reached cult status quickly. The Tick focused on a super hero who was well known for his “Spooooooon!” battle cry and his skin-tight blue suit. This satirical take on the super hero craze is considered one of the best animated series of all time, even though it only ran for 36 episodes.

8. Ren and Stimpy

Production Period: 1991-1996, later 2003

Ren and Stimpy, a dog/cat pair, were one of the most neurotic duo’s to hit television in the 90’s. When the show first started, it was described as frightening and often violent, which paired with the slow production schedule, caused the shows first director to be fired. When the show came back in 1993, it was re-formatted to suit the masses, and eventually led to four years of success for the show. The duo returned to television briefly in 2003, only to be removed once it began delving into plot-lines that were considered “too adult” for television.

7. Spongebob Squarepants

Production period: 1999-Present

When Spongebob Squarepants premiered on May 1 after the 1999 Kids Choice Awards, Nickelodeon didn’t know they had just launched one of the most popular kids cartoons of all times. Spongebob reached popularity in the middle of its second season, and hasn’t slowed down since. The low-budget show proved that you didn’t have spend a lot of money to make a lot, and eventually made way for cartoons like ‘The Fairly Odd Parents’ and ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender’. The show follows a sea sponge (Spongebob) and his best friend star fish (Patrick) on several of their adventures around their hometown of Bikini Bottom. The show is made to be enjoyed by kids and their parents by including more adult innuendos and soundtracks that feature artists like Wilco, The Shins, Twisted Sister and David Bowie (who appeared in the shows most watched episode of all times). Spongebob is still going strong and can be viewed on Nickelodeon!

6. Daria

Production Period: 1997-2002

Daria, a spin-off of Beavis and Butt-head, also aired on MTV. Daria followed a misanthropic, intelligent high school aged girl (Daria) and her daily encounters with the world around her. The show often referred to the unfortunate circumstances that usually affect teens as well as references to pop culture, especially music. The series followed Daria through her awkward high school years and ended eventually with her graduation and acceptance into college. After 65 episodes and 2 TV movies, the series called it quits on January 21st of 2002.

5. Family Guy

Production Period: 1999-2002, 2005-Present

Much like Futurama, Family Guy took everything positive from the cartoons of the early 90’s combined it with the lack of political correctness of the 2000’s and forged it’s way through the depths of animated comedies. Family Guy, which first aired on January 31 of 1999, is one of the most iconic cartoons of all time, even producing a spin off show in ‘The Cleveland Show’. Focusing on the Griffin family, the show follows their day-to-day life in suburbia. The show often features other characters (Cleveland, Quagmire) but most story lines revolve around Peter, Lois, Chris, Meg, Stewie and their trusty talking dog, Brian. Nothing on Family Guys is what it seems, but it seems like everything you’d want to see in a cartoon.

4. Futurama

Production Period: 1999-2003

Futurama might barely make our list, only premiering on March 28, of 1999, but the quality of the show makes it a must include. The show is essentially a workplace comedy, focusing on three main characters, Bender, Leela and Fry as they go about their days as ‘Planet Express’ delivery employees. Futurama was officially canceled in 2003, but can still be seen as syndication on Comedy Central.

3. Beavis and Butt-head

Production Period: 1993-1997

Beavis and Butt-head first appeared on television on MTV back in 1993. Beavis and Butt-head are two teenage guys who get by obsessing over music videos, contemplating their sarcastic version of life and testing out really bad ideas. The show ended in 97, but it is still considered a pop icon of the nineties.

2. South Park

Production Period: 1997-Present

A cartoon that focuses on 3rd graders at a Colorado elementary school. It doesn’t exactly sound the like the recipe for a successful television series. But South Park is possibly the most successful animated series of all times. Since 1997, Stan, Kyle, Cartman and Kenny have been presenting political topics and taboo topics with a comedic ease that leaves audiences laughing, even when they know they shouldn’t be. In 2000, the boys made the switch from third to fourth grade, where they have remained ever since. During the first 5 seasons, the show was infamous for killing Kenny near the end of every episode, then bringing him back the next week with no explanation of his death or return. The show always reflects pop culture phenomenons, or current fads in society, addressing everything from ‘High School Musical’ hysteria to ‘The Lord of the Rings’ madness. After a motion picture and over 180 episodes, South Park is still going strong, and will be for at least a couple of more years as it has been renewed through 2011!

1. The Simpsons

Production Period: 1989-present

Probably one of the most iconic cartoons of all times, we realize ‘The Simpsons’ didn’t technically get their start in the 90’s, but since it was just a couple weeks shy we felt we could bend the rules a bit. The original run date was December 17, 1989, which was a date that set the bar for all cartoons in the next decade. The Simpsons quality has certainly declined of late, but during the 90’s it was consistently cranking out top notch entertainment, and easily takes the top spot on our list of best 90’s cartoons.

Things you should start doing

I try to create good daily habits in the new year and thought this list would help you to create a few ones, too. 🙂
You all are amazing anyway but you can always work on yourself and become more amazing!

We all could break a few bad habits and start being healthier, happier and just more awesome, right? 😀

So here’s a list of things you should start doing daily:

Wellness Habits

If you want to be happier…

  1. Talk with a positive person.
  2. Write down three good things that happened to you each day.
  3. Laugh – even if you have to force it. The mere action of laughing releases endorphins.
  4. Get some sun (or a happy light, if it’s a gray day.)
  5. Move your body (walk, exercise) for 20 minutes or longer.
  6. Walk a dog or pet an animal.
  7. Ask for a hug from one person a day.
  8. Call an old friend or relative.
  9. Invest 30 minutes a day doing a hobby you enjoy and find relaxing.
  10. Buy something new (even something small, like a new type of coffee.)

If you want to manage stress more effectively…

  1. Breathe deeply for at least two minutes. Focus on your breaths.
  2. Stretch different body parts for ten minutes.
  3. Listen to something calming and distracting (news, music) unrelated to whatever is stressing you out.
  4. Cuddle (with a lover, friend or even a pet – physical touch is comforting.)
  5. Detach from the source of stress (excuse yourself from a meeting, take a break from a project, remove yourself from an argument) for a five-minute break.
  6. Sniff lavender or geranium essential oil (both lower blood pressure.)
  7. Sit in the sun (outside) for five minutes.
  8. Paint a picture.
  9. Talk to a friend for ten minutes, even if just to hear about his or her life.
  10. Spend ten minutes grooming (nails, bath, hair.)
  11. Take a nap.
  12. Chew a piece of gum.

If you want to be more confident…

  1. List three things you genuinely like about yourself. Read those three things out loud.
  2. Stand up straight. Let your hands hang naturally at your sides.
  3. Dress in clothes that flatter you.
  4. Outline your thoughts/words before you enter an intimidating situation. Being prepared will help you feel more confident. Bring cheat notes if acceptable.
  5. Refuse to fidget. Instead, go to a private place (car, restroom) where you can stretch and get out the jitters. Then focus on relaxing.
  6. Pay attention to the other person instead of your own insecurity.
  7. Repeat a mantra in your head.
  8. Make a list of things you like about yourself.
  9. Ask for compliments from a trusted friend or relative.

If you want to become more spiritually minded…

  1. Devote 15 minutes a day to reading a spiritual text (Bible, spiritual book, spiritual workbook.)
  2. Walk in the woods.
  3. Perform one thoughtful act of kindness for a stranger.
  4. Give up one physical pleasure or material possession.
  5. Join a group of like-minded individuals from whom you can learn and be inspired.
  6. Look up at the stars.
  7. Enjoy a sunset or sunrise.
  8. Write out how a person you encountered that day could enrich your life journey.

If you want to be more mindful…

  1. Take up meditation. Start with 15 minutes a day. Find a quiet place, set a timer, close your eyes and focus on your breaths.
  2. Pay attention to the details of now. What color is that butterfly? How does that salad taste? How many shades of green can you see right now?
  3. Consciously let go of worry or regret. Tell yourself “Future Me will take care of that” or “The past is the past.”
  4. Focus acutely on an immediate sensation, like how great it feels to be tucked into your comfy bed, or how invigorating that brisk wind is.
  5. Invest emotionally in a current interaction. How does your friend feel about her problem? What emotions are you feeling right now? What can you do comfort/inspire/rejoice with the person you are with right now?

Social Goals

Good Habits List1K+

If you want to make a new friend…

  1. Make a conscious effort to smile.
  2. Make eye contact with someone new.
  3. Introduce yourself to someone new.
  4. Ask open-ended questions about this new person’s preferences.
  5. Talk about common ground issues.
  6. Find a way to laugh together. Tell a joke, make a self-deprecating statement or engage in an activity that makes you both laugh. Laughter is bonding.

If you want to show you are interested in finding someone to date…

  1. Invest an extra twenty minutes a day in personal hygiene. Don’t leave home without being showered and groomed.
  2. Smile often.
  3. Refuse to gripe, complain or talk about anything negative.
  4. Relax. Roll your shoulders, sit up straight and open your stance. Uncross your arms and let your palms rest open, facing up. All of this sends the vibe that you are confident and approachable.
  5. Establish and maintain eye contact. Hold the other person’s gaze longer than you usually would, but not so long as to stare.

If you (women) want to be perceived as sexier…

  1. Show a little skin. Choose your favorite spot (shoulders, legs, arms, décolletage) and wear clothing that shows off that one area.
  2. Wear red. Try red lipstick, a red shirt, red shoes, red nail polish… studies report that men will think of you as sexier and more attractive.
  3. Lean closer to him.
  4. Brush up against him.
  5. Wear heels.

If you (men) want to be perceived as sexier…

  1. Stand tall (straight posture.)
  2. Roll your shoulders back.
  3. Initiate gentle touch without hesitation. Brush up against her; touch her arm during conversation. Touch the small of her back as you hold the door open for her.
  4. Wear slightly dressier clothing than is required in each situation.

If you want to be a better lover…

  1. Prolong foreplay by at least five minutes beyond what you think is expected.
  2. Pay attention to how your lover is responding.
  3. Hold off on eating anything substantial in the two hours before you expect to make love. If you must eat in that time frame, keep it light and easy to digest.
  4. Engage in prolonged eye contact.
  5. Set up a sensual environmental. Clean up the bedroom; light candles.
  6. Get in touch with your playful side. Laugh; relax; have fun.

Fitness Goals

If you want to lose weight…

  1. Eat six small, healthful meals a day to keep satisfied and on track.
  2. Eat that first meal within 30 minutes of waking up (to jumpstart your metabolism.)
  3. Move your body for ten minutes or longer first thing in the morning. A brisk dog walk or ten minutes of an exercise video is a perfect way to increase your metabolism.
  4. Work out for a total of an hour a day, five days a week. If you can break that up into two workouts, you will benefit even more (since you will create two spikes in metabolism that day.)
  5. Drink a glass of water before each meal.

Personal Projects

If you want to write a book/poetry collection/screenplay…

  2. Pay bills the same day you get them.
  3. File paid bills immediately after you pay them.
  4. Return items to their proper places immediately. Tell yourself counter space is sacred space that is not to be defiled.
  5. Recycle, repurpose, give away or throw away one item every day (until you don’t have any extra clutter left!)

If you want to quit a bad habit…

  1. Contract with yourself to try something else for ten minutes before giving in to the bad habit.
  2. Identify emotions, places, or experiences that trigger you to do the bad habit. Respond to each trigger with a new habit. For example, if you used to bite your nails while driving, wear gloves while driving. If you used to pluck your eyebrows when nervous, pick up a pencil and draw each time you feel nervous.
  3. Set up “coping kits” that you can use on the spot. Promise yourself you’ll use your coping kit instead of doing the bad habit.
  4. Set up immediate reward and punishment programs. For example, charge yourself a quarter every time your swear (swear jar.)

If you want to quit smoking…

  1. Remind yourself that cravings usually lessen if you delay gratification. Tell yourself “All I have to do is wait ten minutes” each time you experience a craving.
  2. Suck on a mint every time you want to smoke. Make yourself wait until the mint is gone before allowing yourself to decide if you really need to smoke.
  3. If you usually smoke outside, force yourself to walk around the block twice before allowing yourself to decide if you really need to smoke.
  4. If you have certain places you used to smoke, find replacements for those places. Establish new habits, for example, going to a restaurant where smoking is not permitted for lunch each day, or buying coffee in the office instead of walking somewhere (if you used to smoke while getting coffee down the street.)

If you want to drink less alcohol…

  1. Make yourself drink a full glass of water before you indulge in each serving of alcohol.
  2. In social situations, set a number of conversations per drink. For example, you might force yourself to mingle with three guests (three full conversations) before you allow yourself to refresh your drink.
  3. Alternate club soda and alcoholic drinks.
  4. If you normally pour yourself a drink right when you get home at night, replace this habit with another habit. Walk the dog, take a shower, do an exercise video, or eat a salad before you allow yourself to pour that first drink.

Keystone Habits

The following are the most effective keystone habits you can possibly develop. These three can help improve your life in a number of different ways.

If you want to improve in multiple areas at once…

  1. Walk (or complete some form of exercise) for 30 minutes a day. A daily walk will improve your mood, increase your energy level and will help you manage stress, stay fit and lose weight.

  2. Replace one main meal per day with a salad or broth-based vegetable or lentil soup. By eating several servings of vegetables per day, you will feel more energetic, lose weight, feel fuller and lower your chances of contracting cancer and many other diseases.

  3. Schedule at least eight hours (possibly nine – find out what you need) of sleep per night. Getting adequate sleep will improve your mood, give you more energy, make it easier to absorb new material, help you make healthier eating choices and improve your work performance.

Good habits can change your life. You’ve just read through a list of 203 habits that can be developed. Now is the time to take action. Just pick one of these habits and make it part of your daily routine!
