Your Facebook Page Needs More Action
If your mom and great uncle Ed have become your biggest Facebook fans- it might be time to spice up not only your social media life, but your actual social life as well.

You Check Flight Prices “Just To See”
Although you aren’t actually planning on taking a trip next month to Bali, you’ve been comparison shopping for the best travel deals and have even signed up for travel price alert. This is a good sign you’re just waiting for the best deal to come along.
Empty Photo Frames
While photos throughout your childhood and in college naturally filled a plethora of photo frames and albums, adult hood often offers less of an opportunity to capture new, exciting moments.

You’re Aching for Cultural Diversity
Whether you come from a small town or just want a change of pace, experiencing a new culture first hand is a great chance to see the world from another angle and open the door to a whole new world of opportunity.
