Divorce Changes Everything!

UNITED STATES—Divorce, I would argue many Americans have encountered or at least experienced the drawbacks of divorce. I hate when people compare divorce to death, while devastating, it’s not like something no longer being in the presence on Earth, but things as we know it will never ever be the same. I first experienced the aftereffects of divorce when...

The Kanye West Debate

UNITED STATES—I almost wrote on this topic last week, but for reasons I cannot fathom I resisted the temptation. I didn’t just want to jump into a situation and write about something because the rest of the world was talking about it. The one thing I have to point out is the fact it ushered in a debate about...

Family Bonding Time

UNITED STATES—Something happened over the Thanksgiving holiday that hasn’t happened in a while, my family actually bonded in a way that we haven’t done in years. Yes, as a kid we celebrated EVERY, and I mean EVERY Thanksgiving together. As we got older, and began to start our own families the divide became evident. It’s not like I didn’t...

Raising Up An Issue Of Concern

UNITED STATES—Raising an issue that may be causing you grief is no easy task. It might be something at the workplace, something at home, or a family member who just boils your blood or skin every single time that you see them. So the question of the week is how do you address or raise a concern with an...

Customer Service Nightmare Continued

UNITED STATES—A few weeks I shared my tale with my cable and internet provider who had been giving me the run-around for weeks about providing terrible service. I had my share with my provider in the past, but this past week solidified something that I’ve known for quite some time: it’s time to bid adieu. Why am I so upset?...

Wedding Bliss

UNITED STATES—Recently I attending a wedding and it was amazing. I had this level of glee that I never expected. I think in my entire lifetime I’ve only attended three weddings. Yeah, that is quite a small number if you ask me, but a wedding makes one think about love, the future and life in general. When it comes to...

Turkey Chaos Begins!

UNITED STATES—Can you believe it? In less than a few days the biggest foodie day of the year will dawn on us: Thanksgiving. Yep, Turkey day has arrived and the chaos that comes with the most festive, loving and family-oriented day of the year has arrived in my opinion. Food is just one of the headaches of the big holiday,...

Sticking To That New Year Resolution

UNITED STATES—For most people, its February, and at this point many people may have given up on their New Year’s Resolution, but for myself I’m still going strong after about 6 weeks into the New Year. I made a bunch of resolutions, but the biggest I have stuck to is not eating fast food. Yes, it might be daunting...

The Importance Of Celebrating A Birthday

UNITED STATES—Birthdays, they come around once a year people, and with that assertion, they should be celebrated if you ask me. However, the older I get, I see the importance of a birthday not being as important as I once considered them. I’m not only speaking from my perspective, but a lot of friends and family members that I...

All Odds Against You

UNITED STATES—Insanity. It’s not a word that is easy to describe, but it’s when a person suspects he or she is losing their mind. Stress is a large component of insanity in my opinion. Some weeks are more stressful than others. Last week, my brain was put through a mental workout. Not only did I have to deal with...
