Are Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt calling off their divorce?

Nearly a year after filing for divorce from Brad Pitt, it seems like Angelina Jolie may be having second thoughts. According to Us Weeklytheir divorce is being put on hold. “They haven’t done anything to move it forward in several months and no one thinks they are ever going to,” a source told the magazine.

The actors ended their relationship after spending 12 years together. They got married in 2014 and are parents to six children: Maddox, 16, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 11 and 9-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.

While it is still unclear what led to their initial split — there was reportedly a violent altercation between Brad and their 15-year-old son Maddox during a plane ride — the two have been focused on raising their six children in a positive and healthy environment. Brad has even started going to therapy for drinking and smoking, a move Us Weekly adds has made Angelina consider taking him back. “He knew he had a problem that he had to take care of and that’s all she ever wanted,” the source continued. “Everyone thinks they are going to get back together. It wouldn’t be surprising if they announced that they’re calling it off and trying to work things out.”

In recent interviews to GQ and other publications, Brad has revealed how he has completely given up drinking. “I can’t remember a day since I got out of college when I wasn’t boozing or had a spliff, or something…I’m really, really happy to be done with all of that. I mean I stopped everything except boozing when I started my family. But even this last year, you know — things I wasn’t dealing with. I was boozing too much,” he said.

Pitt said he loved wine, adding “truthfully I could drink a Russian under the table with his own vodka. I was a professional. I was good.” He’s also apologized to former wife Jennifer Aniston, who he’s rumored to have cheated on with Angie. “He addressed all the hurt he caused her,” a different source previously told Life & Style.

“Everyone thinks [Angelina & Brad] are going to get back together … It wouldn’t be surprising if they announced that they’re calling it off and trying to work things out,” the source added.

Angelina is currently awaiting the release of her Netflix film, First They Killed My Father.

5 sites to earn money online!

Wait… I’m not promising you that I’ll pay your rent but I’m showing you 5 sites that can put extra money in your pocket. Last week, I got $5 from this.

I’m having tests on Saturday so don’t worry, I’ll respect your time and be quick.

  1. Swagbucks: I kept it as No. 1 because this was the site that paid me. With Swagbucks, you earn cashback when you shop at popular online stores like Kohl, Nike, Walmart, Payless and so on. They pay you in form of SB which you can redeem for cash. 500SB = $5 and you can choose from hundreds of gift cards. You can also earn SB per survey you take. The least SB per survey that I’ve seen 29 and the highest is 1000. They also pay you when you surf the web with their search engine. The interesting thing about using their search engine is that whenever you search for an online store that partners with them, they alert you that you can earn cashback instantly

2.Inbox Dollars: This one gives you $5 bonus when you sign up. What they won’t tell you is that you can’t payout. With Inbox dollars, you can get to read emails, sign up for corporate offers, watch videos, play games and generally surf the web. They also give you sweepstakes entries or fake money that can be traded in for rewards of some kind. The rewards can be real money or one of those useless sweeps. Try it though!

3. Vindale Research: Vindale Research is one of the oldest companies that exist when it comes to taking paid online surveys. If you join and get paid, don’t forget to take a picture and send it to them, they’ll pay you $5 when you do. I joined the day before yesterday and I got $2 for taking a really short survey. I’m new to this one so I don’t have much to say.

4.Survey Savvy: This one is the easy one. They can pay you for taking surveys but the best way to earn is to download the application to your phone. They pay yo $5 per month. Get it on

Now if you’re wondering why they pay, I have the answer. These people are research companies they are the ones that give statistics and get paid when they do. You know when someone says, “About 73% of teenagers are on Facebook”, they get the result from companies like this. To reach a large mass of people, these companies leverage the internet. Don’t worry they don’t ask for personal information, though. They do research to check preference among stuff like TV shows and soda.

If you’re waiting for 5, there is no 5. Research shows that odd numbers tend to attract more. If I said 4, you might not have clicked.

Let’s talk about gender equality

Yes, I agree. We are equal…

For a minute, Let’s not quote the Bible, the Quran, anyone or anything. Just read.

This gender inequality thing is not totally our fault.

Men are taught to be the hard man, women are taught to be the good wife, children are born and the cycle continues. If you read you’ll find out that it’s not the fault of parents too.

Let me give this instance. Two innocent young boys are given birth to and they are told, “You can’t do this because you are a boy” or “Men aren’t supposed to be seen this way.” So they grow and they begin to mask emotions because they want to be perceived as tough. Good! It means the number of shoulders to cry on in the world has just increased by two. Then let’s just say one takes it to the extreme. His toughness developed into bullying in high school and domestic violence in marriage but the other one turned out to be the good guy consoling all the crying girls in the block and lifting all the heavy stuff that needs to be moved.

Then let’s talk about the girls. They’ve been told, “Close your legs, don’t you know you’re a girl?”, “Don’t eat that way” or “Cover your body.” Very good, you’ve not only decreased her chances of getting raped by men like the bad guy I talked about above but you’ve also saved the growing toddlers, adolescents and teenagers because mothers, grown girls turned women, have more influence over them. So she grows to be kind, well-behaved and probably less confident, being the submissive person you want her to be.

But she’s not good enough because she can’t cook or not married. Society makes sure it finds her flaw and criticizes her. So one day she became brave, formed her hand to a fist, waved them in the air and called herself a feminist. Wonderful! Stand up for what you want. I mean, you can’t continue to be treated this way.

You remember Mr. nice guy, the consoler, and heavyweight lifter? Oh, you do! Yeah, he’s treated badly. He tried to support the feminist movement and split the date bill but he was called cheap. There was this time he stared at a lady and was called a pervert but when she stared back, people said, ”No, she’s just flirting.” His girlfriend hit him and guess what she was called? No, no guess again. People called her brave but when his brother hits women, his brother is evil.

Mr. nice guy doesn’t fit his hand into a fist and wave it in the air. He is supposed to be tough and not whine, he has become a master in masking emotions so he says something like, “I am giving the world a semblance of sanity”  when he is also supposed to stand up and tell society to stop being bias. So what should we call him? Let’s call him masculinist and have him go for talk shows and voice out his opinion. 

Let the games begin.

So what’s you take?
