Bad Friends

There are undoubtedly some people out there who consider themselves to be great friends to others. They admire their ability to listen to their friends’ problems, laugh at their jokes, and even lend them money from time to time.

When this happens, they tout themselves as being deserving of a ‘friend of the year’ award, even if they know that they have done things that would state otherwise.

In this video, we have a hilarious compilation of those friends that we know who are capable of stabbing us in the back, stealing our partners when we aren’t looking, pushing us down for laughs, and every other deed that people do at the expense of their ‘friends’ and associates.

Although you wouldn’t think that it’s funny to discover the evil doings of those who claim to be our friends, you just might be surprised. Somehow, this video reflects the human side of us all–that even includes the odd human side of most animals–as you will see in these clips.

The ability that we all have at placing ourselves first, without attempting to harm others…it’s just our nature.



Don’t strive to be famous, strive to be talented

Margaret Constance Williams, known as Maisie Williams, is an actress, an entrepreneur, and an activist. Yet to this day, she has no formal qualifications to her name. According to Maisie, her career has been built upon a symphony of seemingly normal opportunities that evolved into extraordinary, life-changing events.

She made her professional acting debut in 2011 as Arya Stark of Winterfell in the HBO world phenomenon Game of Thrones. Selected among 300 British actresses, she plays the role of a tomboyish young girl from a noble family for which she won numerous awards.

Maisie tells the story of working on what ended up becoming the biggest television show of all time from the age of 12. She also discusses why she thinks right now is the perfect time to build tools for communities.

Her broad artistic life led her to co-found Daisie, a social media platform aimed at creative people in the world of arts, fashion, tv, film, photography, music, and literature. The aim of the app is to bring individuals from across industries together, to help foster collaborations with other artists and provide an alternative route into creative industries. Maisie said “Our main goal is to have a community of artists that are collaborating, uploading their work and sharing their projects.. helping others create their careers.”
