Seeing The Good In The Bad

UNITED STATES—I do not know what is going on, but I feel like the past 6 weeks of my life has been utter hell. Week after week after week I get bad news and the bad news just seems to get worse each time. I don’t think I’m attracting it at all, but I feel I am being tested...

Family Infighting

UNITED STATES—I’ve said this before and I will say this again, family fights worse than anyone you can ever imagine. Blood has a way of cutting you deep in a way that you never expected and the problem is the amount of hate, disappointment and/or anger could reach feverish pitches. You might say where is all this coming from?...

Differing Opinions Is Okay America

Mental Burnout

UNITED STATES—America I am burnt out and I wish that was not the case people.

Devastating Family Blow

UNITED STATES—My family has been struck by the COVID-19 pandemic, but not like it was in the recent week. I lost my grandfather as a result of COVID-19 and it sickened me to my stomach because he just turned 99 last month, we were hoping he’d make it to 100 so we could throw a massive party to celebrate...

College Education, What Is It Worth?

UNITED STATES—I was recently having a conversation with some friends and family about college. I know a lot of people tend to say that high school is the best days of your lives, but I disagree. College were the best times of my life, however, did I truly learn anything while in college? We had a heated debate about...

‘Innocent’ Bystander

UNITED STATES—I want to have this discussion because it is something that concerns me greatly in our society. It seems like as a country we really take on the ‘innocent bystander’ effect. Now let me clearly explain this because I think there might be some confusion with people by what I mean. I’m not referring to someone being the...

Sibling Rivalry Madness

UNITED STATES—For those Americans who have siblings, you understand that you squabble with your siblings it’s a passage of rite. However, at the same time you can have disagreements or arguments that are explosive, boil your blood and become volatile as hell. That is where things stand with my younger brother. I swear as kids we were thick as...

Cancer Can Be A Scary Thing

UNITED STATES—My family was presented some devastating news last week when we discovered my step mom has breast cancer.
