Hashing It Out.

More security help for you: Hashing. So now what is hashing? In cryptography a hash function is a one-way mathematical operation that takes an arbitrary block of data and returns a fixed-size bit string.

Always Be Curating

The #1 rule of millennial social media is a modern day “Always Be Closing” and an attempt to be able to sell others on the idea you’re a cool, hardworking, fun person.
That rule is “Always Be Curating.”
It doesn’t matter if on the inside you’re torn and broken.
Outside and online it’s nightclubs, parties, fancy meals and fancy cars.
No showing weakness.
It may not be showing the entire truth of you, but it’s not lying either:
It’s curating.
No bad scenes here, just sunshine and sunny days.
Don’t forget a picture of your cat.
