My Reality TV Obsession

UNITED STATES—I shouldn’t be obsessed with reality television, but for some odd reason it seems piercing into the lives of complete strangers with the thought that what I’m seeing is somewhat ‘real.’ Yes, I use the term ‘real’ loosely because is reality television composed of the absolute truth. For example, one of my guiltiest pleasures at the moment is the...

Social Media Feuds

UNITED STATES—Have you ever had a feud on social media via Twitter, Facebook or Instagram? The answer to that question is probably yes, but just because someone ignites a conversation with a stupid comment does not mean you have to reply? But why are we innately born to do so as humans? The idea of defending ourselves is something...

Dining Out

UNITED STATES—Dining out is something most Americans do at least 1-2 times a week. While its great to escape the kitchen every so often, is it worth it to spend a hundred dollars or more on a meal where the service is beyond horrible? I seriously don’t think so. I recently dined at an establishment that I hadn’t been to...

The report that he was inside a chopper that was hit by gunfire wasn’t the truth, and has brought into question his validity in reporting. The...

Awards Show Debacle

UNITED STATES—What is it about awards season that puts so many Americans in a tizzy? Is the excitement about the fashions? No. Is it the excitement of seeing big time celebrities? No. So what is it? It’s the notion of seeing a possible dream come to fruition. Yeah, there are plenty of awards shows, but I think when it...

The ISIS Crisis

UNITED STATES—Terrorism is something that is beyond frightening. As an American, this was seen first-hand with attacks on our country on September 11, 2001, that changed the face of this country ever since. In recent months, the militant, terrorist group ISIS is continuing to instill fear across the nation, by capturing, torturing and violently killing innocent people. Not only have...
