    Mending is a way of repairing clothes that have holes, stains, or other signs of wear to make them more useful and beautiful. It's about using what you have, embracing imperfections, fixing what's broken, and rejecting the idea that newer is better.  
    When friendships fall apart, it can feel like it’s impossible to pick up the pieces and fit them back together. Some broken friendships are destined to stay that way. However, when you have a special intimate friendship that brought meaning to your life, a renewal is important. Restored relationships give us perspective on our experiences, and deepen our lives. Not all friendship fissures are fatal.
    If you have a long lost friendship you’d like to rekindle, chances are you’ll be able to make a meaningful reconnection. Today, we are discussing a five step plan that will help you determine whether or not a friendship should be saved, and if so how you can do it.

    A home energy audit or energy evaluation or energy assessment is exactly as it sounds. Much like any audit that is performed on finances, jobs or companies, an audit will assess all of your home’s energy uses and outline all of the specifics. In simple words, a home energy audit is a process that helps you to identify where your home is losing energy and what steps you can take to improve energy efficiency.

    I take an interest in a variety of people, including students. If someone asks me to proofread a paper, I do so if I have the time and feel that I can be of assistance. I do it because I can, and I get paid in satisfaction. I try to do things that I enjoy, and if I can help without doing their homework and have the time, I will do so.

    Third, Indigenous Peoples help protect our environment, fight climate change, and build resilience to natural disasters, yet their rights aren't always protected. While Indigenous Peoples own, occupy, or use a quarter of the world's surface area, they safeguard 80% of the world's remaining biodiversity.
