Education Overload

UNITED STATES—My grandparents once told me no matter how much education you have you can always learn more. I have two Bachelor Degrees; one in English with a concentration in film studies and another in Psychology, a Master’s Degree in Sociology and now I’m working on my Doctoral Degree in English. I told myself after pursuing graduate school I...

Worker Shortage, Employer Frustration

UNITED STATES—The conversations are still taking place about the current state of the workforce in the United States of America. People are complaining here and there that there are so many job openings and the question continues to linger why some businesses are having major trouble finding employees to fill in positions that are currently vacant. That is a loaded...

The Divide Between Americans Widen

UNITED STATES—Where has this country gone? The level of hate and vitriol is unfortunately at an all-time high and it seems to ONLY be getting worse as time progresses. People don’t like something they feel the need to write hate-fueled op-ed pieces aimed at the opposing party. People protests or take to the streets letting their voices be heard,...

Family Time Balance

UNITED STATES—It is NOT always easy to spend time with family. Sometimes you mesh well with some people, at other times you don’t mesh that well with others. With that said, this weekend I was placed in a difficult dilemma because of course it was Father’s Day. The problem is the fact that I work two jobs and I’m...

Family Stupidity

UNITED STATES—I sometimes wonder about my family because sometimes people just do stupid things that make you question what the hell they are doing people. My father recently took a vacation out of town to Florida. I thought everything was going well because I’m the type of person that believes when you go on vacation you disconnect from everything....

Anxiety In Life

UNITED STATES—I suffer from terrible anxiety people. I honestly have an idea what triggered it, but I feel like as I get older it has gotten slightly worst. It does concern me greatly as I have spoken to a therapist about it and the advice she gave me has helped when I actually apply it. The goal is to...

Can We All Just Get Along?

UNITED STATES—America right now is at a boiling point. There is so much hate and decisiveness in this country it is hard to watch TV, listen to the radio or just talk to people. Right now, if someone disagrees with you on a particular issue they automatically become an enemy. America we are better than this and we have...

Fighting The Urge To Snack People

UNITED STATES—Do you like to snack? I think we all do, but the problem with snacking is that it can lead to major weight gain problems if you’re not careful people. We all know you’re told time and time again; that you should have 3 meals a day (breakfast, lunch and dinner) in between those meals you should have...

Mother’s Day: Finding The Perfect Gift

UNITED STATES—Mother’s Day it is perhaps the one holiday that stresses me out the most because I’m a bit of a perfectionist in my goal of finding the perfect gift for the woman who gave me life. The problem with Mother’s Day is what do you get a person who really doesn’t ask for much or fails to give...

Why I Will Never Be On Social Media

UNITED STATES—I get this question all the time and people tend to be surprised by my answer, but I reply, “Why?” People are literally dumbfounded when they discover that I am not on social media. That’s right America; I do NOT have a Facebook page, a Twitter page, Instagram, Tik Tok and so many other social media platforms. Look,...
