One thing that is becoming more and more popular is learning online. With tuition prices rising and the economy moving to the internet its worth trying to save some money by learning certain skills online.
Some skills that can be picked up through online education:
This is just a small list of all the free courses floating around out there. The rest of the article will focus on platforms and tools to get there.
Duolingo is a fun site that gamifies language learning. You can learn French, Spanish, German, and 22 other languages. It teaches you through a question answers system that awards experience points. As you learn the language and answer more tests you get levels and currency to spend on the website.
Study island has every subject under the sun and is a good place to improve foundational skills. If you are feeling rusty on your algebra 1 or algebra 2 this would be a good answers site for reviewing and brushing up those high school skills. Its a good idea to pair study island with an answer key like islandanswers.com. By combining cheat sheets with the questions I can remove old subjects more quickly rather then re-inventing the wheel.
IXL is another site that i use to improve my rusty skills. There are two main areas that IXL specializes in: Reading and Math. If you are having trouble with your commas or your semicolons this site has tons of exercises for improving those tricky punctuation marks. It also goes slightly more into depth than Study Island and is a bit more interactive. The website also feels newer and is visually hip and stunning.
Of course youtube has a plethora of free knowledge and courses at your fingertips. It is just the king of online learning at the moment and theres so much you can do with it. Recently I have been using it to improve my writing skills and learning more about how to make a blog. Theres just some subjects that really lend themselves well to video courses and thats where youtube really shines.
In all whether you use study island answers, ixl, duolingo, or youtube there is something to learn with this wonderful tool called the internet:)
Sometimes the best educational sites require you to submit your email to create an account. With all the recent concerns about internet privacy it can be worrisome to do this, for example Facebook was just hacked and 50 million peoples accounts were exposed. To remain anonymous there are websites out there that let people share free logins that they no longer need. This way you can anonymously use a website without having to worry about your name being out there in cyberspace. One of these account and password sites is accountsilo.org, I haven't had the chance to use it yet, but i've seen it mentioned a lot in discussions on reddit about privacy. Like the sites above it's free to use and you can get accounts for games, streaming, and other stuff that requires you to hand over your email and name.
Just about every sweatshirt graphic started off as a canvas in some hard working artists studio. Eventually making its way through leaps and bounds onto many shirts, sweatshirts, and other things needing beautifying.
Here I have collected some of the most gorgeous sweatshirts that could belong in an art museum let alone a fashion show.
Who doesn't love foxes? This hoodie from artist Sharon Turner captures both the curiosity of the common fox as well as its natural side. The geographical patterns on the fox reflect subtleties of nature as well as adding an extra feeling of royalty that foxes seem to naturally give off.
At first glance i even though the fox was wearing some kind of patterned hoodie of its own. However now i'm not so sure, the fox may just be from a different dimension where most foxes look this ornate.
This are some more artistic hoodies from artist Tone Fonseca. They combine flowers with organs to create a natural harmony between body and nature. The overall affect is gorgeous, unique, and thought-provoking.
Marilyn Monroe is an immortal fashion icon whose image always has a place in pop culture. One way she still pops up is on trendy new hoodies and sweatshirts. Some of the common new styles include gangster marilyn monroe or Marilyn with some kind of red bandana. Entire sweatshirt websites like monroe threads have collections of marilyn monroe hoodies.
It dosen't just stop with hoodies either, there are sweaters, leggings, shirts, phone cases and the list goes on. When looking for a marilyn monroe hoodie you want to think about what era of Marilyn Monroe you are looking for. Almost every 2-3 years throughout the 40s and 50s all the way up to her death featured new looks and a new Marilyn. In the late 40s we had an innocent girlish Marilyn whos likeness pops up on some sweatshirts with celebrity memes. The designs from the mid 50s feature a Monroe in here prime--think the skirt blowing scene at the subway--white elegant dresses and confident poses were the norm. From this 50s era you can find more vintage graphics.
