What if all of us stopped where we were and just stood still? Even just for a moment. The world seems to be in such a rush lately. Pedestrians speed-walking past us on the sidewalk. Car horns blaring as drivers maneuver seamlessly between lanes, cutting others off in a quest to end up a car length ahead at the next stop light. Young adults desperate to skip across the globe to countries unknown in a quest to check boxes next to a life list of seeming impossibility. Music has gotten faster and louder.
My year essentially started with me standing in my sister’s living room, with her arms around me as I sobbed — and it ended the same way. It should be noted, crying uncontrollably (especially in public) is quite possibly my 7th circle of hell. Yet in 2017, I found myself unable to get through an entire day without welling up a bit, if not curling into full fetal position, sobbing and eating Nutella, straight from the jar, with a spoon.
I lost a schedule and the rest of my life began to follow. I sat in the middle of a pile of clothes yesterday, on the verge of tears.Â A new diet and walking everywhere and more yoga have all merged together nicely to start a quest towards toning up and slimming down.Â Which is great, except I’m now one of those “I have nothing to wear” people who has an entire walk-in closet full of clothing but nervous breakdowns trying to get dressed, because nothing seems to fit quite right.
The cold grey granite exterior, the strength that we sometimes think someone has in huge towering magnitudes–that is something that may possibly be crumbling before our very eyes, as they desperately struggle to mortar the cracks & catch the falling debris http://bit.ly/2FQkLsc
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
