Nowadays, people often communicate primarily via messaging. Memes have become the new normal when it comes to making someone laugh. Well, not for this mom! She uses old-school art to prove to her kids that chalkboard notes can be just as funny as memes. Her Instagram account has recently gone viral, precisely for her priceless chalkboard notes. Check out the whole story…
A Mom’s Hilarious Art Goes Viral
Samantha is a blogger who goes by the name @samanthaslife80 on Instagram. She started posting her hilarious notes back in 2021 and hasn’t really stopped since. Her so-called Chalk Talk is always spot-on and incredibly funny. Some of her posts feature a humorous twist, while others simply give instructions to her kids.
Like many, Samantha enjoys using social media and often uses it as a way to give other parents advice via her funny stories. She believes her chalk art puts a smile on many people’s faces, and that’s what matters.
Not everyone likes social media, though. According to a survey, many parents feel depressed after seeing pictures of happy families on vacation on social media. More often than not, social media does indeed cause different kinds of blues.
How to Ditch Social Media
If you’re trying to ditch social media, here are some pieces of advice that might help you. Firstly, you should limit the amount of time you spend on social media. According to some studies, reducing social media time by at least 30 minutes a day can help people overcome feelings of anxiety.
Muting contacts is another great way to stay off social media whenever you need. Also, don’t forget to say nice things to yourself and your friends and family. Acknowledge your abilities and praise them, and you’ll quickly start feeling much better.
Even if you’re not overwhelmed by social media, ditching it, at least on holidays or other events, will give you a chance to connect with your loved ones much better. Also, you can set up a few simple rules on how or when to use social media. Or, just like Samantha, you can try your own chalk art to make others laugh.

Ryan Gosling Discussed Parenting In a Recent Interview
In a recent interview published this October, actor Ryan Gosling discussed parenting in recent months. He shared how it was a tough time for him and Eva Mendes because their kids are young, and having to keep them separated from other kids meant they had to do their best to entertain them.

Ryan Gosling Gave the Interview After He Chose Tag Heuer for His First-Ever Brand Partnership
Maybe it was because he was giving an interview after his brand partnership with Tag Heuer, Ryan Gosling said that on a personal level, he thought about time more often. He pointed out that now he has two kids who are growing up fast — he keeps his eye on the clock more than he used to. He then shared how for his first Father’s Day, Eva Mendes gave him a watch.

Actors Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes met in 2011 on the set of the movie The Place Beyond the Pines. They have been together ever since and now have two daughters. Despite their ten-year relationship, the two actors have a very good track record for keeping their family life a secret. The kind of info he gave in this recent interview is all fans know about the two. Eva Mendes has even wiped her Instagram completely clean. Her response to a fan who asked for more pics on social media was that her man and kids are private, and that’s important to her.
