At some point in our lives most of us question our purpose and debate whether we are on the right track or not. There’s no doubt that much of this contemplation happens during our college career. Both a lack of job opportunities and a lack of passion lead to many changed majors. The challenge for most people is trying to make a living out of the things they love to do.
Gary Vaynerchuk is a high energy individual who can be entertaining to watch. He argues that you can make a living out of any passion if you simply put enough energy into it. Not sure if this applies to everybody… but he still makes a good attempt to motivate everyone.
I’m a chemical engineering major, so I’m pretty satisfied with the statistics this infographic throws out there. If you’re lost in the cloud of college, maybe this can help you find a clearer direction. But before you change majors, remember that the heart can produce money, but money can’t produce heart. [Via]

The wealth of crime scene investigation shows on TV can lead to delusions that one knows what goes on when the CSI team pulls up. With my combined knowledge culled from CSI (pick a city) and Dexter, I like to think of myself as an amateur forensic scientist, throwing around random facts about DNA evidence and blood spatter analysis. The real fact of the matter is I am next to clueless about the realities behind these fascinating subjects. The folks over at Forensic Nursing are doing their part to educate with today’s infographic.
For any Dexter fans out there, this infographic breaks down what bloodstain pattern analysis (BPA) entails and how it works. BPA experts can examine the blood left at a crime scene and pinpoint the date and time of the crime as well as the type of weapon, among other things. The infographic also details the types of spatter, and how the analysis is made. [Via]Share This Infographic
Furry little creatures may be my favorite thing in the world. And while my kitty at home is the sweetest ball of fur to ever exist, I have a soft spot for puppies as well. While I may not be a hardcore dog or cat person, this hilarious infographic gives some insight on the profile of dog people vs. cat people. [Via]Share This Infographic
Guess what men, today you are going to spend more money shopping than women. Today’s infographic entitled Men vs. Women: Online Shopping Habits chronicles, that’s right, you guessed it, the shopping habits of men and women. As it turns out the difference in the amount of money spent shopping online is greatest right when both sexes hit the 45-54 age range. Interestingly enough this is also when both genders see a drop in their spending habits. Men spend less because of their midlife crisis and women, according to the infographic, hit the prime of their career during this time and simply have less time to shop.
As it turns out, men are the tenured online shoppers, therefore they feel more comfortable buying big ticket items averaging $67.82. Significantly higher than the average online purchase of women coming in at $51.84.
Personally, I think shopping online is a really cool thing. Often I find that shopping online, at least for electronics, is cheaper, and what’s more you don’t have to use gas going to the store. Shopping online also allows you to compare prices easier rather than going store to store talking to sales people who have no idea what’s going on. Instead you can just do a google search with your question and have tons answers at your finger tips. [Cash Back and Coupons]Share This Infographic
