You probably already know this, but there’s more to life than laboring inside a cubicle 40 hours a week. In fact, it’s likely that you already catch yourself daydreaming about packing your bags and exploring the world.

But who’s to say that you can’t? Traveling to the other side of the globe is not an impossibility. You can do it and live your best life, all while making money at the same time. And how, you ask? The answer can be summarized in just four letters: TEFL.

Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) is a career track that hundreds and thousands of people have found success in, and it’s not hard to see why they did it. According to the British Council, 1.75 billion people worldwide are already speaking English, and that number is predicted to rise even further.

Twitch is at the epicenter of broadcasting and watching video games. The service is home to monumental success stories within its catalog of streamers — Ninja, the most followed streamer on Twitch, immediately comes to mind, as well as gamer and YouTube personality Pokimane, and even that one guy who fell asleep during his livestream for a couple of hours. With over 15 million daily active users, Twitch has cemented itself as a pivotal component of the gaming industry, and as a global phenomenon. 

When Amazon acquired Twitch for nearly $1 billion back in 2014, it introduced Twitch Prime soon after — a service that would be available to all Amazon Prime members. As a part of the deal, Twitch Prime members would have access to exclusive game loot each month, a free channel subscription every 30 days, and all the additional benefits of Amazon Prime, among other things.  Read more…

Amazon dropped the price of Apple AirPods *again* — now they’re $12 off

Amazon dropped the price of Apple AirPods *again* — now they’re $12 off

TwitterFacebook

Remember two days ago when we freaked out over AirPods being $9 off at Amazon?

It’s happening again, but intensified.

Apple AirPods are now $12 off (double digits!), making them just $147. That’s only $8 more than the AirPods’ lowest price ever on Amazon, which was $139. 

We can only hope that Apple is doing some stealthy nod to the AirPods 2 by dropping the original AirPods price by $3 every day. By our calculations, they’ll be free by June. (Just kidding, but this is how unhinged our minds become when AirPods are on sale like this.) Read more…

If you have a knack for gardening, it’s likely that you also have a disdain for the colder months that don’t help yield your delicious veggies. Wouldn’t it be grand if there was a way to keep your green thumb satisfied throughout the entire year, without any reason for pause? That very tool exists, and it’s actually on sale right now.

You can pick up an AeroGarden Bounty on Amazon for $60 off for a limited time — snag one for yourself and start growing that sweet produce. 

The Aerogarden isn’t just for experienced gardeners — beginners will enjoy it as well (and it honestly does a lot of the hard work for you). Growing herbs, vegetables, salad greens, and more up to five times faster than regular soil, the AeroGarden comes equipped with a high-performance, self-monitoring LED lighting system that promotes speedy growth — you’ll be harvesting in no time. The most helpful part of the indoor gardening system is that it basically coaches you through the entire process — the attached touch screen tells you when your plants need to be watered or fed, and gives helpful tips along the way.
