Kill Boredom in Online Class Thru Web-Based Games

As I have mentioned in my previous post, I am currently enrolled in my graduate studies. Every Saturday is my class schedule for the three subjects. Every subject is a 3-hour online class.

My class starts from 7am to 10am, followed by 2nd from 10am to 1pm, then lastly, 2pm to 5pm. Imagine having a chemistry class in front of the computer for that period.

Although we did not consume all of the time allotted per subject, I, sometimes, feel bored and look for something to kill the boredom. I watch informative videos from Youtube, reading newsfeed on my Facebookand play web-based online games.

Speaking of web-based online games, there are many options but most of them require registration or subscription. Fortunately, I was able to find which offers hundreds of free web-based online games. The games were made for kids but can be for adults too.

Essex Medspa Laser Skin Rejuvenation Littleton


Living in an area with a high elevation is known to affect body functions such as breathing. One can become nauseous and suffer headaches. However, exchanging valleys for mountains can affect your skin as well.

Skin Takes Longer to Heal
If you live or spend extended time in places located at 14,000 or more, it will become harder for oxygen to reach your skin tissue. Stress hormones also increase. So if you have cuts or cracks on your skin, it will take longer to heal.

Skin Can Get Sunburn Quickly
Do you enjoy reaching the summit of a mountain? Reaching closer to the sun may feel amazing and make for a great Instagram moment, but it will also bring you closer to direct UV rays.
There is less atmosphere for the UV rays to pass through in the mountains - so there is also less protection. Trekking through the Colorado Rockies would expose your skin to twice as much radiation as a trip to the beach.

Skin Needs Extra Hydration
If you enjoy participating in the many outdoor activities available at high elevations, such as rock climbing, snowboarding, or skiing, your skin will be more susceptible to drying out. The dry air in the mountains can crack the skin. Like any good workout, intense outdoor activities will cause your body to lose water through perspiration.

Skin Will Easily Break Out
Your skin cells may become dehydrated from the low humidity. It may cause itchiness or breakouts from the build-up of dry skin cells causing acne.

Skin Will Need Extra Care Overall
Living in a high-altitude environment will require some extra skin care to combat the increased exposure to the sun and dry air. Here are a few suggestions for proper skincare at this level:

1. Find a good dermatologist or cosmetology professional to help you keep your skin in its best form and screen for skin cancer.

2. Keep a comfortably moist environment at home. Turn on the humidifier before you go to sleep.

3. If you exfoliate your skin at home, don't overdo it. Scrub as gently as possible

4. Make sure that you have a good moisturizer. Try different lotions and serums to see what works best for locking hydration into the skin.

Life in a city or country at a high altitude can come with scenic views and adventure. However, your skin will be under extra stress. If you are a Colorado resident, keep your skin refreshed with a visit to Essex Medspa Laser Skin Rejuvenation Littleton.

6 Signs You Need New Windows

6 Signs You Need New Windows

Quality windows are a good investment for any home. Not only are they good protection for your home, but they are also made to last. Most window professionals say that quality windows last about 15 to 20 years before you need to replace or begin performing regular repairs to them.

Some of the signs that your windows need to be replaced include:

Cracked Window

This is perhaps the most obvious and can happen tone one of your windows any time. A warped, broken, or damaged window sash or frame not only looks bad, but can also compromise the safety and comfort of your home. It can also let in small vermin and insects.

Constantly Fogged Glass

Do you have double- or triple-pained windows that have a constant fooged-like appearance? If so, condensation may be getting trapped between them thanks to even the smallest of holes. If this starts happening on a regular basis, you should consider replacing the window.

A Soft Frame

If you have wooden windows, excess moisture can cause the windowsill to rot on the outside of the house. If the wooden sill feels soft to the touch, consider replacing the entire window and frame on the exterior.

A Sticking Window

Is your window constantly getting stuck when you open and close it? This can happen after you have had it for a while and are constantly opening and closing it. If this wear and tear are causing you problems, it’s probably time to replace the window.

Drafty Rooms

If there are cold drafts in your home through other openings besides the designated window opening — even after you have caulked and weather-stripped a few times — it may be time to get new windows installed.

Rising Energy Bills

Are your energy bills getting to be more and more expensive each month? If so, you may have a window problem. Typically, about 41% of recurrent household costs go toward heating and cooling your home. If you notice that energy consumption increasing, it is possible that your windows are the problem. Getting new windows to replace old ones can help cure the problem and keep your energy bills at a normal level.

If any of these issues could be affecting your household, it may be time to call in a professional to take a look. They can assess whether you may need to undergo a window installation project now or shortly and can provide a quote for the work.

Reminiscing the CLSU Intramurals

My alma mater recently announce to offer a graduate course in Chemistry – Master of Science in Chemistry. This caught my attention and immediately inquire about the said graduate program. Since we are still in the pandemic, all classes will be online. Because of this, I decided to take the course. The class officially started on September 13, 2021.

Studying at CLSU makes me reminisce about some of the important events during my undergraduate. One of those is the Intramurals.

This weeklong event happens during the first semester gives break to student from their academics and show their skills in sports.

CLSU Athletic Field during vacation

The event usually starts with a parade of the athletes wearing their respective uniforms composed of collegiate shorts and jerseys. It is followed with an openning program where the torch lighting is conducted at the atheltic field.

I heard that in the recently held CLSU Intramurals, different units have alredy their own name and logo that best represents their respective college. This logo are printed in their uniforms like the HBCU Shorts Collection.

Different colleges battles for medals in various sporting events like ball games, swimming, track and field events, chess, and not to forget the showcase of each unit’s muses bagging for the Miss and Mister Intramurals.

The Bleacher
The majority of the events happens on the athletic field. The bleacher is where the expectators go to watch the different games happening simultaneously. By the way, the bleacher is not only used during intramurals but also a venue for holding some classes and term examinations.

However, if you wanted to focus on a specific event, you need to stay under the scorching heat of the sun because ball games like basketball and volleyball are located in an open area. Be sure to have your umbrella with you all the time.


Swimming events happen in the CLSU Swimming Pool while indoor games like badminton and sepak takraw happen in the CLSU gymnatorium.

I know that many things in the Intramurals have changed since I left CLSU 18 years ago. Unfortunately, I will not be able to witness the innovations because, during the pandemic, it prohibits face-to-face classes and holding such events.
