Does a lack of gravity make you fat?

My favorite blog post of the day was Discoblog’s “Investigating the “Charlie Brown Effect”: Astronauts’ Chubby Faces and Hot-Sauce Cravings.” Original Post

This post instantly caught my eye because of the title. It was very catchy and it intrigued me. I had to find out what the post was about because we hardly hear much about astronauts cravings and I wanted to know the relation between astronauts and Charlie Brown, who happens to be a childhood favorite of mine.

I found the article interesting because the average person would not even think that without gravity bodily fluids would accumulate in our heads and give us a rounder looking face. This article provided me with quirky new information. The writing style was humorous and playful in the sense that the author wanted to get the information across, but also keep the reader engaged throughout it. Perhaps, living on earth is not such a bad idea after all. -CV


Hello world!

I wanted to create a blog in which I incorporated a little bit of everything that makes me myself.

Being original is like a glass of water on a hot dry day. It is refreshing to the spirit and soul.

My favorite pieces to write or broadcast on are feature pieces highlighting a person. A unique person. Everyone has a story to tell. I like finding out what lies beneath a person and sharing their story. We are all unique beings.

I also like educating others about public health issues and information.

This blog is still a work in progress. I am hoping to add working out and healthy food tips. Balancing a healthy lifestyle with a busy life can be difficult at times. It is something I personally struggle with. I run and do Bikram Yoga religiously and whenever I have extra time I do kickboxing. I also realized I love to cook when I have time.

I will try to update the blog as often as possible. Anyone with ideas or a topic they would like to hear more about please contact me at

Please feel free to submit some feedback. There is no such thing as bad criticism. All criticism is welcomed. It pushes the author to work harder. Thank you. -CV
