A Country Divided?

UNITED STATES—I keep hearing this all over the countless news outlets: we are a country divided. We are a country divided because half of the country voted for the current President Donald J. Trump, while the other half voted for Joe Biden. In all truth, the country is politically divided it appears: those who are Democrat, those who are...

The Anxiety Of An Election

UNITED STATES—I have never had this level of anxiety waiting for the results of a presidential election for as long as I can remember. I have been actively voting, and I mean actively on a local, state and national scale since I turned 18. I was one of those people who couldn’t wait to have the opportunity to vote...

Donate That Stuff Just Collecting Dust

UNITED STATES—I’ve had a bit of spare time lately, and what I have come to discover is that I have a lot of stuff, stuff that is just collecting dust or that I no longer need. So what does that mean? It’s time for me to eliminate some stuff America. I’ve been keeping work notebooks for the past 10...

Quarantine Health Crisis

UNITED STATES—We can sit here and ignore the elephant in the room if we want, but the truth remains, many Americans put on a bit of weight as a result of the big quarantine that transpired from mid-March thru July. In some states it was even longer if you ask me. I know for one that I put on...

Not Overspending On Christmas Gifts

UNITED STATES—Halloween is now behind us and the next big holiday where money will be spent, Christmas is fast upon us.

A Long Overdue Break

UNITED STATES—I know I cannot be the only American, who counts down the days when they have a long overdue vacation that they have been eagerly waiting to arrive. I mean the notion of having a week or for those who are lucky, 2-3 weeks off of work, its unlike anything. Why? It allows you to have a second...

Balancing Budget Act

UNITED STATES—Budget, we all hate hearing that word, but for so many Americans we need to hear it more and more because it forces us to acknowledge, what we are spending are money on and if the items that we purchase are actually worth it in the long run. Sometimes you have to really look at your expenses and...

Do Not Dismiss Your Right To Vote!

UNITED STATES—It is hard to believe that Election Day is a few days away and it feels it has snuck up on us as Americans. However, the one thing I want to harp on more than anything is that you should NOT take your right to vote for granted. I know I am not like all Americans, but when...

Online Shopping, Store Pick-Up Is Great!

UNITED STATES—I am just going to put it out there, I know plenty of people who just loves themselves some Amazon. I’m sure the site is great, but I am not one of those people, Jeff Bezos is already pretty rich, I’m not about to make him any richer when there are other retailers and small businesses who have...

Having Money Changes Everything!

UNITED STATES—It is said time and time again that money cannot buy happiness, but in the great words of Dr. Will Kirby of “Big Brother 2” and the first installment of “Big Brother: All-Stars,” “Money can buy you stuff.” That is so true and as most Americans know we like to purchase things, it gives us a moment of...
