Hello again, Internet. It’s your favorite infographic writer, Stewart. I know that I’ve remained somewhat mysterious and reclusive (as most great writers do), and so I thought I’d take the opportunity to open up and share more about my personal life. All of my millions of fans across the globe have been dying for a piece such as this, so here’s some meat for the wolves. I am currently studying English at Texas Tech University, and I plan on attending law school afterwards. For this reason, I have chosen this infographic as a personal interest. But if you, like me, are interested in attending law school, or even if you’re not, this infographic will help you see the pros of attending.
Employment for law school graduates is expected to increase 10 percent by the year 2020. Which means that your chances of employment will increase significantly in an already highly employable position. In fact, the number of law school graduates has been steadily increasing since the 1970s. Law school requires a lot of effort, but in the end, it definitely pays for itself.
With the constant changing of laws and creation of innumerable law practices, becoming a lawyer is a great idea for anyone with the right mindset. There are several types of law that one could choose to practice, so it is also a very versatile course of study. So I urge you, Internet, to explore this field more thoroughly. [via]

William Shakespeare, as I’m sure you all know (because if you don’t, you need to climb out from under whatever rock you’ve been living underneath for the past few centuries, and rocket yourself back to planet Earth), is undoubtedly the most well-known playwright in the history of the English language. Here are some interesting statistics you might not have known about his life.
He was born on the 23rd of April. Fifty-two years later, he died on the 23rd of April.
Shakespeare created almost 3,000 English words. How many times have you created a word that stuck? He once used over 7,000 different words in a single play. Which, by the way, the average English speaker only uses 500 to 1,000 different words in an entire day.
He’s also popular enough to have 80 known variations of the spelling of his name.
In Shakespeare’s lifetime, he wrote 37 plays and 154 other works that we are aware of – which is an insane amount of writing.
He wrote one-tenth of the most quoted lines in the English language. Some of them you might use every day and have no idea that ol’ Bill himself was the person who coined it.
Now, all of you may know who Shakespeare is, but if you’ve never sat down and read one of his works, I implore you to do so. It may take a lot of work, but it’s worth it just to say, “Yep, I read Hamlet, and understood every last word in it.” [via]

Creative Internet marketers get to work with other innovative people. Being an Internet marketer, you get to work with a team that is capable of making a client’s vision happen. But every Internet marketer knows that creativity isn’t always enough. It depends on the client they are working with. Thankfully, Geek Powered Studios has designed an infographic that walks though the in’s and out’s of working with a good or bad client.
A good client is one who has supplied the marketer with the necessary information to make assessments and create the plan. A client that is good for business is one who has created a timeline and understands that creative genius can take a lot of effort, but marketers need to deliver on a timeline. As opposed to a good client, a bad client will rely on the agency to create a vision and direction. In the end, a bad client is likely left blaming the agency for its mishaps and shortcomings.
Every business relationship requires trust. A good client is one who puts their vision in the hands of a talented marketer. A bad client will make you feel uncomfortable with their aggressive attitude and disorganization. Great clients are willing to contribute their thoughts to your assignment and be helpful in refining the product, but trusts the agency’s talent. [Geek Powered Studios]

Are you interested in a sure-fire solution for getting up early? Get a rabbit. But seriously, my pet rabbit wakes me up every morning before 8 a.m. All she wants to do is wake up and make the most noise possible. Half the time, I just give her a treat and try to go back to sleep while she’s eating it. I’m a horrible pet mom.
Although it’s a pain in the butt, I am kind of grateful that my pet is forcing me to wake up earlier. I am so much more productive when I wake up early. Sometimes it sucks though, because I still can’t fall asleep before midnight most nights. I’ve always considered myself a night owl, and this infographic implies that night owl tendencies are related to depression. Becoming a morning person is just sounding better and better!
OK, but really, there are a lot of other things you can do to become a morning person besides adopting an annoying morning pet. To get the most out of your sleep, start by exercising in the mornings. This sounds a little counter-productive to me because exercise wears me out, but according to the infographic, when you exercise at 7 a.m., you can go to sleep easier at night. Then there are all the standard suggestions such as staying away from lit screens, caffeine and other drinks, certain foods, alcohol, and cigarettes. Although I’m kind of bummed that taking naps isn’t recommended for helping you get a good night’s sleep, I am intrigued that different alarm apps can help. I’ve tried both the smart alarm and the math alarm, and both are pretty darn good at getting you out of bed.
Give a few of these pointers a try if you’re in the mood for a better night’s sleep, and soon you’ll be waking up like you’ve got a pet rabbit alarm clock.

I love coffee. I’m not prejudiced, either. I’ll take it any way I can get it – regular, decaf, flavored, hot, iced, frozen, with cream, without cream, sweetened, unsweetened, or spiked. I’ll take it all. Hell, I even like coffee-flavored ice cream.
Seriously though, this infographic has me pegged. As a 23-year-old woman living in the South, I will buy a fancy, sweetened cup of coffee, with milk, for $3 or more occasionally. The only thing I’m not so sure I identify with is the waiting in line thing. I am not a patient person. Not even for my coffee. However, I do own a Keurig, and I am not above making my own super tasty coffee at home. (That’s the best place to spike it.)
Being such a coffee fanatic, I was very surprised to learn today is International Coffee Day. Normally, I miss all the good days. (I’m looking at you, National Cheeseburger Day.) I’m just so glad I found out in time (precisely 12:03 a.m.), because now I can celebrate in the best way possible – WITH COFFEE! I don’t know who decided to come up with all of these awesome national and international days, but I’d like to shake their hand. And share a cup of coffee. Or a cheeseburger.
