The Fun Of Going To The Fair

UNITED STATES—If there is anybody who knows me they fully understand that I am an adrenaline junkie, I love a good thrill. I got to experience that over the holiday weekend with a visit to my city’s local fair with my family. I personally love roller coasters, but this time around, there were no coasters, but I did notice...

Triggering Nightmares

UNITED STATES—As a psychology undergraduate I was super intrigued in my abnormal psych course when we studied all things dreams. What they mean?

A Cellphone Is Not A Must People!

UNITED STATES—I recently had a conversation with a few family members at a small gathering and we talked about the past. How things used to be simple.
