Point of View

Spending Money For No Reason

UNITED STATES—Why do we do it? Why do we have those days where we just spend money knowing we shouldn’t be spending it to begin with? This is slightly different from buyer’s remorse because with that psychology, you initially want the item to begin with. However, to spend just to spend, places you in that situation when you know...

Stability In The Workplace

UNITED STATES—I tell people this time and time again; there is a vast difference between a job and a career. Some might argue I’m using that terminology to establish status, but that is not the case in any fashion. When I talk about a job it could be something temporary or unstable, whereas a career might have a bit...

Family Matters Most In Distressing Times

UNITED STATES—It seems like it always takes a tragedy to bring people together. I just literally had to go to a funeral for my uncle who passed away unexpectedly. Well to be honest, he was sick, but not many people knew because my mother’s side of the family has been estranged. It seems that people get into tiffs over...

Parkland, Florida: Hate Kills

FLORIDA—Only in America can a mass killing spree become a political protest. Watching the kids who are just a few months or years from being adults, enjoying their 15 minutes of fame on national television pointing the finger, “but we are the kids you are the adults, do something!” I agree the adults should do something.

It is considered a milestone for most Americans and something to really toot your horn or be ecstatic about. Purchasing a home...

Are All Millennials The Same?

UNITED STATES—We love to place people into groups. You have the Baby Boomers, Generation X, Millennials and now we have Generation Z. Of course, out of those various generations many fall into one of those regions. Well, right now the talk of the town seems to be millennials and for the oddest reason, millennials receive the brunt of the...

What Is A Dream Job?

UNITED STATES—How many people do you know who have actual dream jobs? Some of you might even be asking what an actual dream job is. Well, it is a job that you absolutely adore; one that provides glee, happiness and just a pure feeling of accomplishment. You get the opportunity to do something that you love, without it feeling...

Mental Labor Vs. Physical Labor

UNITED STATES—It has been a question that I’ve debated for years and I get plenty of blow back from people that I know all the time. Is a job that requires mental strength more exhaustive than a job that requires physical strength? It is a very loaded question and to be honest there is no clear-cut right or wrong...

Family First

UNITED STATES—Christmas has come and gone, and to be honest with everyone I am so happy. I felt a bit more stress this year than in previous years past.
