Stephen Hawking Quotes – A tribute to the man who has now disappeared into his own black hole.

Stephan Hawking was an amazing man and he will forever be an inspirations to us. Even though he is no longer with us, we will always remember him for his brilliant work.

Opher's World

Stephen Hawking – probably the greatest mind of the last fifty years – right up there with Einstein and Newton – has just fallen into his own black hole. The Hawking radiation of his life will continue to radiate from that black hole for centuries to come.

Here’s a few quotes that I can relate to.

Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change.
The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge.
I have noticed even people who claim everything is predestined, and that we can do nothing to change it, look before they cross the road.
“We are just an advanced breed of monkeys on a minor planet of a very average star. But we can understand the Universe. That makes us something very special,” Hawking told German paper Der Spiegel in 1988. He often spoke about space exploration and the extent…

Rise Above

So today we decided to head out for lunch and go back to my favorite vegan restaurant in St. Catharines- Rise Above! They are fully plant based and have the most amazing and delicious food ever!

I’m going to be honest- not all places that have vegan food are good because a lot of places have very bland vegan options that really are not well done but Rise Above is totally different! I think one of the reasons their food is so delicious is because they make it themselves like even the vegan alternatives instead of using store bought stuff. It definitely makes a difference. Their food is so good most of the time I can’t even tell that it’s vegan and they don’t have the usual bland vegan options like salad (honestly no one wants that!) they have so many different and creative foods!

And their portions are amazing too! I usually eat way more than average and I rarely have food remaining after a meal but with this place I never seem to finish (which is great because I get to take it home and eat it again!)

Here are some pictures of the amazing food we had!!

If you’re ever in St. Catharines even if you’re not vegan I would still highly recommend checking out this place! I think you may be pleasantly surprised!

Her books:

As you guys know I’m always happy to support fellow bloggers when they have books out or are doing anything awesome and it turns out Kristina has a new book out that I read last week!

Kristina is a Croatian blogger and indie author who’s writing is mainly about psychology, sociology, human relations and society. She has not only a very thought provoking blog but an interesting new book out! Her latest book is also incredible thought provoking and is about a women trapped in an abusive relationship. It is incredibly realistic and no it’s not your usual guy meets girl story but I would highly recommend it because it gives a great insight into abusive relationships. If this is something you would be interested in reading about I would definitely recommend this book!

Here’s a link to her book:

Life Updates!

I know I haven’t been blogging much or keeping up to date with everyone else’s blog

Image result for please dont hate me gif

However, I thought I would update you with everything that’s going on right now (admittedly not a lot…)

Image result for doing nothing gif

I have a bunch of assignments due soon (one tomorrow and 3 next week) and I have a midterm test next week for Sociology so I’ll mostly be revising this week which is very hard to do when it’s cold and snowing and all you want to do is curl up in bed and hibernate.

I also tried out some vegan Indian food from Touch Of India this week which was really good! Touch of India is one of the only two Indian restaurants in St. Catharines (at least that I know of!) and I thought it would be fun to try out their lunch specials!

It was really good and it pretty affordable too which is always a plus! I would definitely recommend it if you’re ever in St. Catharines!

I also skipped a seminar for the first time since I’ve been in university and felt kinda guilty about it but it wasn’t too important and I really did not want to go. It was super cold and snowy and I just could not deal with it.

So that’s pretty much what’s been going on with me!

Why Is Failure Important And How To Benefit From It (Guest Post)

By Stefan

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” Winston Churchill

Failure can be a great a great motive to succeed indeed, yet we often get discouraged when we
fail at something. Moreover, we are even afraid of the possibility of failure itself. Regardless of
what we’re talking about – it could be a bad grade at school, criticism we get from our boss, or
something as trivial as impossibility to find a date at bbw online dating sites – it seems like we’ve
subconsciously adopted the claim that failures are wrong and not socially accepted and we even
treat it as an axiom of a kind. The key is, however, to embrace and even cherish your failures,
learn from them, and then keep on trying no matter what.

There are numerous tips and success stories that we’ve learned from iconic figures that could
certainly teach us the thing or two about the importance of failure as a means of achieving own
success. Still, we are going to share just some of them, which are in our opinion the most
effective ones.

#1 Face your fears

“There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.”
Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

This Paulo Coelho quote pretty much sums the entire issue up. Fear is often wrapped up in false
security that is actually a jail that doesn’t allow us to make any moves. The most important thing
about the fear is to learn that breaking free perhaps won’t result in the desired outcome, well not
at first, but once you’ve hit the rock bottom you’ll most certainly survive and then you can dust
yourself off and move on.

#2 Understanding the situation

“Don’t spend time beating on a wall, hoping to transform it into a door. ”
Coco Chanel

Okay, so you’ve failed. Big deal! You can now start again by assessing the situation and learning
from your mistakes, which are by the way – human. The Earth is not going to stop revolving
around the Sun, and you don’t have the luxury to cry over the past mistakes for too long. At least
not when you can try to do it all over again.

#3 Enjoy your failure

“Together, they would watch everything that was so carefully planned collapse, and they would
smile at the beauty of destruction.” Markus Zusak, The Book Thief

Forbes contributor, Michael Lindenmayer, actually suggests that you should organize a real
feast, with drinks and food and entourage of your closest friends and then enjoy a constructive
contemplation about your failure. Besides sounding like a fun, this can be a great way to take a
different perspective on your mistakes that will give you a fresh approach on what to do next.

#4 Move on

“A thinker sees his own actions as experiments and questions– as attempts to find out
something. Success and failure are for him answers above all.” Friedrich Nietzsche

Nietzsche was right. You should simply learn your lessons, get up and move on and this is pretty
much the entire philosophy behind it!

Great News – The Banning of Ivory and Tusks from Being Imported Into the U.S. – Change.Org

Finally some good news!!

Opher's World

Ban elephant ivory and tusks from being imported into the U.S.

1M supporters

Petition update


Kathleen Martin
Vancouver, WA

28 Jan 2018 — After months of limbo, the Trump Administration just officially announced the reversal of the ban lift of African elephant trophy imports into the United States! This victory was won by you, and the more than 1.1 million supporters who rallied together to protect the threatened African elephant.

I started this petition because we are not powerless to effect change in any administration. Because of your incredible support, this is true, and our voices were heard! Thank you to every individual who signed and shared. Together we reversed a policy that would have been disastrous for the majestic African elephant, and I am so hopeful we changed this future together.

Thanks so much!
