One Kid's Revenge On Mom: Taking A Trip To Bali On Mommy’s Card
You have to give kids credit when they do amazing things. But when those "amazing" things are more on the audacious side? Well, that's something else - and that's what an Australian family is dealing with after their 12-year-old took things way too far after an argument with his parents.
Apparently, he didn’t like hearing the word “no” from his mom. So the boy - identified as "Drew" (not his real name) - tricked his nana into giving him his passport, and he took Mom’s credit card and bought himself a ticket to Bali. Wait, what? Yup.
And because he’s 12, he’s allowed to travel alone with a passport and student ID. As the story goes, 'Drew' told his folks he was off to school, then took a train to the airport, hopped a flight out of the country, and landed in Denpasar for a four-day adventure on his mom’s dime - nice hotel and all. Of course, mom also had to pay to go get him. Is he sorry? Not even a little, saying: “It was great because I wanted to go on an adventure.”

There’s A Brilliant Company That Recycles Event Flowers -Have you ever been to a wedding, company dinner, or other event where you notice the flowers go to waste? Well one company is changing that!
Repeat Roses gathers those forgotten flowers and donates them to local nonprofits. But that’s not where it stops. Once the plants are past their prime, Repeat Roses picks them up and recycles them AGAIN by turning them into compost.
Former event planner Jennifer Grove is working hard to make the company successful and growing. But making a difference is more important. "We brought flowers to a gentleman who hasn't had a visitor in three weeks,' and just knowing we made a small difference in someone's life, that's meaningful to us."
Genius. Pure genius. Source: Good Morning America

New Dating Apps Of 2018
Online dating is all about increasing your chances of meeting someone, right? So if you’ve been on the same old Internet dating sites for a while and you’re not making the love connections you’re looking for, maybe it’s time to change things up. Here are some new and revamped dating apps that may just get you closer to meeting that special someone.
- Happn - You know when you pass someone who you think is cute, but you’re too shy to stop and talk to this stranger, but later kick yourself for not saying hi? Well Happn wants to fix these missed connections, so the app shows you the potential suitors you’ve crossed paths with and tells you how many times you’ve been near each other. Since it uses geographical info to suggest matches, there’s a good chance that potential suitor goes to the same places you do, so you’ll probably have things in common.
- Wingman - This app is like that one friend who’ll go up to guys in the bar and introduce them to you. The idea is your “wingman” creates your profile and matches you with dates, so it kinda takes the pressure off you and lets your BFF, mom, or work wife help do the matchmaking for you.
- Vouch - With this app, your friends “vouch” for you, but you create your own profile and get a say in who you swipe for. Matches are made with two singles and one “voucher” swipe right.
- Sweatt - Looking for love with someone who has the same workout habits as you and follows the same vegetarian diet you do? Then this is the app for you! Sweatt takes into consideration your diet and how often you exercise and it lets you plan workout dates instead of traditional ones.
- Tawkify - It’s not so much a dating app as it is an “online dating concierge,” and each member is screened by a matchmaker, who then handpicks suitors and deals with logistics of the date. But this service is NOT free, Tawkify costs between $99 and $6,000 a year, depending on the plan.
