Are You Prepared For The Unexpectant?

Fake Co-Workers

UNITED STATES—I am someone who has a difficult time smiling in the face of co-workers who I find fake. What do I mean when I say fake? It’s a difficult term to describe at times, but it’s someone who is inauthentic. In other words, you know when a ploy is in place. I think I can read people well...

Another Mass Shooting Rattles Our Country

Why Are Millennials Punching Bags?

Fighting For A Decent Minimum Wage

UNITED STATES—The battle is back yet again in Congress as the House of Representatives have passed a bill to raise the minimum wage from $7.25 an hour to $15.00 per hour. Do I think it will make any waves in the Senate? Not a chance, but hearing that the minimum wage has not risen in over 10 years is...

Stop Being Innocent Bystanders!

UNITED STATES—Something that really disturbs me about Americans is our inability at times to do what is right even though we know people are constantly or always watching. Like why do we have to be called out to address bad behavior when we see it? Hmm, this reminds me of a theory we learned in psychology known as the...

Making A Major Lifestyle Change

UNITED STATES—In life, sometimes you have to take a moment and re-examine what is going on in your life. A lot of the time when people discuss lifestyle changes they assume it is geared mainly to eating and dieting. While I think that is one aspect of life that is important it is not the only one. A diet...

Social Media Fiasco

UNITED STATES—I wish I could understand so many people’s obsession with social media. However, I just don’t get it.
