I haven't worked a 9-5 Monday through Friday job in so long, I can barely remember what it was like. Now I work about 14 hours a day instead of 8 (because that is what entrepreneurs do), but I don't have a traditional boss in an office looking over my shoulder all the time. It's a trade-off, which is why finding your passion and loving what you do is so important. I've often written in my articles that if I got a traditional job now, I'd probably get fired in my first week because I don't know how to schmoooze a boss very well.
However, one thing I do remember about having a traditional job is that I looked forward to Saturday all week. Then when Saturday was over, I spent all day Sunday worrying about what my boss would say about this or that on Monday. Had I remembered to turn everything in on time? Had I checked my email enough over the weekend? Did I do everything he asked me to do? Did he catch me when I was five minutes late one day last week? Yada. Yada. Yada.
It's a very sad way to live really, and my heart goes out to anyone living that life now. It's like you spend 6 days a week wishing it was a different day of the week. Nobody really knows what that's like unless you've been through it, and I can tell you from experience, it's not fun. According to this infographic by Column Five Media called Is Your Bad Boss Killing You?, not only is having a bad boss a nightmare to deal with, it can affect your health and your overall happiness. Also, as you see on here, the majority of people who have a bad boss make the decision to just keep that job and try to deal with the situation as best they can.
To me, having a bad boss is like being in an abusive relationship. It's just bad all the way around. To make matters worse, since we are all working more and more hours these days, chances are you spend more time at the office than at home. This only compounds the problem. You owe it to yourself to get out of that situation. When you get sick and tired of being sick and tired, you will start looking at other options. You are better than that, and you owe it to yourself and your family to be happy and healthy!

Sequels, Assemble! Yeah, like anyone was really surprised that the mega blockbuster hit The Avengers has already been tapped for a sequel. Not only did the movie rock everyone's socks off, but it made over 1 billion dollars so far. Eat it, Harry Potter!
As a lifelong comic book geek, the Avengers movie was pretty much perfect for me. I'm a huge Captain America fan, and the Avengers was always one of my favorites. I completely loved the team dynamic, the action sequences, the humor, and of course, the fights.
I've only seen the film twice so far, but I'm beyond pumped for the sequel. I can't wait to see Avengers Mansion (or is Tony Stark building an Avengers Tower perhaps?) and most importantly, the roster. Over the past five decades of the comics, the biggest thing about the Avengers is that the team is always rotating in new members. While I love the movie's lineup of Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, the Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, I really hope they introduce one or two new recruits in the sequel. Who should make the cut? Here's my best guess at who may be joining Earth's Mightiest Heroes next time around.
SPOILER ALERT: If you haven't seen The Avengers yet, you may want to stop reading here as some minor character spoilers follow.
Who do you think will join the team in Avengers 2?

It has become a lot easier for movie geeks and fans to commemorate their love for movies when their birthday comes, and they choose a cake. Long gone are the boring and ultimately ordinary round cakes that we once used to love when we were kids. Instead, there are now cakes that could literally be confused with the actual characters in the movies you love. It must be an odd and unexpected feeling of agony to cut a piece and then eat it when the cake you are consuming is one of the leading characters in your favorite movie. By the looks of it, some cakes are almost eerily life-like, and cutting a piece might not only boil down to that awkward feeling of destroying something that has taken forever to create, but also not knowing where to start.
That must certainly have to be the case with the life-size Yoda cake created by the talented designer Edward Frys. The cake is not only a masterful showcase in ultimate cake design, but also a marvel to behold due to its amazing way of not looking like a cake at all. How someone can put together something this awesome with just stuff that is all cooked up from the refrigerator is beyond me.
Now the question remains, how can someone cut this one and still feeling good about it? It's weird how I view these cakes since I can't for the life of me understand how they can look this good and still taste delicious. If anyone has had the experience of destroying and consuming this kind of food art, please share it with us so we know if these things are actually edible. This one boosted its way to the top of my best birthday cakes of the century list. Amazing is a word that doesn't accurately describe this one, but I can't find a better one at the moment. Wow!
