Think outside the box

The expression "Think outside the box", in English, means that you have to think differently and be creative to be noticed.

I thought of this expresion today when I saw this article. It is about people who decided to make their resumes (also called curriculum vitae) a bit more interesting than the usual ones.

I know some of you are already thinking of looking for a job, so maybe this will inspire you!

do a test that's not for school!

The website blogthings has a lot of funny tests to do in English. If you want to practice English and have a laugh, why don't you give it a try?

You Have Your Life to Smile About

It's funny to ask you what you have to smile about, because you always have something that's making you happy.

You are a naturally smiley person, and you are happy with your life. You feel like you have to be.

You see happiness as something under your control. You don't think there are any big secrets to being happy.

If something isn't going well, you fix it. You're proactive in making sure that you're living the best life possible.
