5 Reasons to Love Five

5 Reasons the Number Five is Fabulous!

The number five is everywhere – in music, literature, sports and more! Without it, some things just wouldn’t be the same. For example, could you imagine how weird it would be if there were only four Olympic rings instead of five (sorry Australia!) or the Pentagon had only four sides? Don’t forget about your feet. Flip-flops would never look right with just four toes. In England, children can start drinking alcohol at the age of five (at home), which may explain why the U.K. is number six on the list of ‘Smartest Countries in the World’ and the U.S. is number two. Even nature is hooked on the number five. Cut open an apple and you’ll find five seeds. Many species of starfish have five arms (Patrick!) and wild roses have five petals. It’s easy to fall in love with the number five when you see how much influence it has in our lives. Here are five other reasons why I think five is fabulous!

Make Me Laugh

Laughter is the Best Medicine

Did you know that August 16 is National Tell a Joke Day? It seems like the perfect opportunity to share a good laugh with a friend or spread a smile to someone who may be having a rough day. My kids seem to come up with the corniest jokes, and although many are not that amusing, watching them deliver the punch line is always entertaining. Even when I am in a horrible mood, it is literally impossible not to laugh when something is truly hilarious.

Flavor of the Month

I Scream. You Scream. We all Scream for Ice Cream!

There’s nothing I love more than heading over to my local ice cream shop for a huge scoop of my favorite frozen treat. On most occasions, it will be something in the chocolate family, such as mint chocolate chip or chocolate peanut butter, but sometimes I step outside my comfort zone and try something different. One of my favorite haunts, Bruster’s, serves up some of the most unusual flavors I have ever seen. My kids are partial to their Cotton Candy Explosion (Pop Rocks in a sweet, blue mixture), but my husband drools over the Monkey Madness (banana ice cream filled with chocolate peanut butter balls and marshmallows). Personally, I love their fall flavors, like Pumpkin Pecan Cheesecake and Winter Wonder (white chocolate with peppermint flakes). With so many wonderful flavors, it could literally take years for me to sample every one of them, but I am certainly up for the challenge!

America's Weirdest Scholarship

The Weirdest Scholarship in America

Every year, there are tons of posts about weird scholarships. There’s the Stuck at Prom Scholarship where students make their outfits from Duck Tape®, and let’s not forget the duck calling scholarship, which has been mentioned so many times it’s just not weird anymore. Of course, no list is ever complete without adding the Kor Memorial Scholarship, simply because those who speak Klingon can use their talent to win it, although it’s not the only language eligible for the award. Last year, ScholarshipExperts.com jumped into the fray with the Zombie Apocalypse and Flavor of the Month scholarships. If you’re a fan of The Walking Dead, the zombie scholarship was made for you. Of course, I personally love the Flavor of Month because I have an excuse to sample ice cream. I haven’t found anything called ‘A Hot Mess’ yet, so my search continues. Now, ScholarshipExperts.com has done it again and launched a totally new scholarship that may just be the weirdest award I have ever seen.

College Scholarship

How Could $3,000 Change Your Life?

If you won $3,000, you could rent a 500 square foot apartment in New York City’s East Village for one month or purchase a Samsung Smart 3D television. There are also a ton of gastric wonders you could afford, such as the world’s biggest hamburger ($2,000) or a white truffle and 24-carat gold pizza ($2,400), which (by the time you add drinks, tax and tip) could easily consume your entire winnings. If pets are your pride and joy, you could spoil your pooch or kitty with a 22-carat gold thread mattress (crazy!). Personally, I would probably use the money to go see my favorite football team, the Jacksonville Jaguars, play against the San Francisco 49ers in London this fall, but that’s only because I no longer have a college tuition bill to pay.

Although $3,000 might buy some lavish gifts or trinkets, those items won’t last forever. Your college education, on the other hand, will provide you with skills and experience that you can use for the rest of your life.
