Point of View

The Oscar Host Debate

UNITED STATES—I have to talk about this because I had no idea that it would explode to such a magnitude. I’m referring to the issue involving Kevin Hart stepping down as the host for the 2019 Academy Awards. It seemed as soon as Hart was announced, he immediately bounced. He said some not so kind things on Twitter, which...

Living Life On Social Media

UNITED STATES—I have to pose an honest question to you: do you get tired of social media? I feel like the world we live in nowadays is completely dictated around social media outlets like Facebook, Reddit, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, Tumblr, Vine, the list goes on and on. There seems to be this programmed notion that every single thing we...

Silence Is Indeed Golden!

UNITED STATES—I’m asked on a constant basis by so many people, why aren’t you more talkative? You seem to be pensive and in a state of thought all the time. Look, I’m not the most sociable person, but I socialize when it best suits me. I’m someone who is more observant of my surroundings more than anything America. I scope...

Order Online, Pick-Up In Store Is Amazing!

UNITED STATES─This holiday season I have come to a major conclusion: it is okay for me to shop online. For years, and I mean years, I have not been a fan of e-commerce. Why? I don’t trust entering my credit card information online, and I just like to have my goods in my hands. I do not like to...

Retailers In Major Trouble

UNITED STATES─When I heard the news on Sunday that high-end retailer Neiman Marcus was looking to file bankruptcy as early as this week it punched me in the gut. How so? It just made it crystal clear to me how serious this pandemic and shutdown of the economy is impacting all businesses across the globe. I mean this is...

Family Bonding Time

UNITED STATES─If the coronavirus has taught us anything, it’s to be extremely appreciative of family. Being resigned to the house with family for weeks and months in some cases, it’s tough. You love your family, but at times they can push your buttons in ways that are not the easiest to grapple with. However, I would not trade this...

Why Is Mail So Late Lately?

UNITED STATES—I know I’m not the only person experiencing this so I have to ask: has your mail been coming excessively late in recent weeks? If not you are lucky, but for me that is not the case. My mail has been coming very late, I recall just last week one day the mail came at 12 p.m., the...

Dealing With Lazy Workers

UNITED STATES—I honestly don’t know how to say this, so I will be blunt, I cannot stand lazy people. It boils my blood to a degree because you see someone working and giving their all, while another just skates by. It’s maddening to me and at times I cannot help but shout out how frustrated I am. Is it...

Environmentally Conscious

UNITED STATES—I like to think that I am someone who is environmentally conscious. Am I a global advocate to save the planet from wasteful resources? Not quite, but I do my part the best I can to ensure I’m not wasteful in the world’s natural resources. That is the one thing I learned in my environmental biology and geology...

What Do You Say To Your Children?

UNITED STATES—Children are sponges for knowledge and information. They are born a virtual blank slate. They pay attention to everything you say to them. You are the purveyor of all knowledge. Children can't distinguish between when you are serious and when you say something impulsively, without thinking. A single comment can stay with a child for the rest of his...
