The Problem With Award Shows

UNITED STATES—Awards season is slowly coming to an end, and I must say I’m happy. It can be exhausting for those of us who cover these ceremonies. You have to be dedicated anywhere from 2-4 hours (looking at you Grammys) to watch a show, that for the first 30 minutes is fun, but the remainder of the ceremony is...

Oscar Outrage

UNITED STATES—Hearing that the Academy Awards would not have a host for the 2019 ceremony did not stun me to say the least. However, after news broke this week about the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences broadcasting awards for 4 categories: film editing, cinematography, makeup and hairstyling and live-action short via commercials are was speechless. The notion...

Was Super Bowl LIII The Worst Ever?

UNITED STATES—Wow, I cannot recall a Super Bowl that was this boring, this slow, and this terrible ever. Super Bowl LIII saw the New England Patriots win yet again this time over the Los Angeles Rams. This cements Tom Brady for many as the greatest NFL player and quarterback with 6 wins. Yes, the guy has more rings than...

Not Everyone Watches The Super Bowl!

UNITED STATES—If you were to utter the words to someone that you do not watch the Super Bowl, you might get the response that you’ve committed a cardinal sin.

Pure Frustration

UNITED STATES—I know I’m not the only person who has experienced this, where you have a day or a week that you are absolutely frustrated to the core. Now, let me be crystal clear: I said frustrated, not anger. Anger and frustration are two different things. Anger is an inability to control how you feel; there is a level...

Winter Is Indeed Here!

UNITED STATES—We are just a few days from the month of February, and I am already over winter. I think I’m more frustrated because in my neck of the woods, winter had been pretty tame until about a week ago. For reasons, that I cannot fathom, people were complaining over the fact that it hadn’t snowed and it wasn’t...

The Government Re-Opens, But Now What?

Why is this vital? Well, at the moment the government is open until...

Are You Prepared For Retirement?

UNITED STATES—This weekend I was forced to have a tough conversation with myself. I’m in my 30s and it came to a realization that I’m not preparing for the future. I mean my parents are near the verge of retirement and I have members in my family who have reached retirement age, and it lead me to question if...

Tax Season Is Coming

UNITED STATES—January 2019 is here, and even though the federal government is partially shut down that does not mean that tax season will stop in its tracks America. That was a fear so many people thought, but the government has assured Americans that if you submit a tax return it will indeed be processed for those Americans expecting a...
