We Will Never Be Normal Again

UNITED STATES—I must admit I am so sick and tired of hearing people say let’s get things back to normal. Here is the thing about normalcy: it means there is no major hiccup to what you expect as normal. The year 2020 was beyond unexpected, it had never happened before. We had a virus that killed over a half...

Bad News All The Time?

UNITED STATES—I watch the local news daily, I want to know what is going on in my orbit. However, I’ve known this, but I’m truly starting to realize it’s a trend that will likely never stop is hearing about bad news at the top of each news cast all the time and I mean all the time. Look, I...

Spending Or Saving?

UNITED STATES—Are you spender or are you a saver? That is a question so many Americans have to be tasked with time and time again. This is a question that is coming to the limelight as a direct result of so many people recently receiving their stimulus check and refunds from the IRS. There are a lot of Americans...

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...

Thoroughly Purging The Home

UNITED STATES—I did something over the weekend that I thought would never happen. I did a complete purge of my home and it was work people a lot of work, but I am so glad that I did it. When I say a purge, I’m not referring to tossing things in the trash, I am referencing to getting organized...

Spend With Purpose People

UNITED STATES—I know I am not the only American who was happy to see some extra income courtesy of the federal government in the form of a stimulus check, but for those lucky to receive that $1400, those with children received an extra $1400 per dependent, what did you do with it? For me, those funds went right into...

Does Common Courtesy Still Exists?

UNITED STATES—I know 2020 has been a rough year, but it raises a question that worries me: does common courtesy still exist? This is a big question I have to pose because it seems like people do not care anymore. People just seem to think the notion of holding a door for another person who might be entering an...

Breakfast, Lunch Or Dinner?

UNITED STATES—I know I am not the only person who does not consume three meals a day. Yes, we have all been told since the dawn of time that we should eat breakfast, lunch and dinner, with three snacks in between. Hmm, I wonder how many Americans actually do that besides kids. I will admit I’m not a major...

Curbing A Sweet Tooth

UNITED STATES—I just did something last week that I thought was NOT possible. I went an entire week without any sweets. NOTE: when I say sweets I’m referring to candy, cookies, cake, any baked goods or anything that is not a natural sugar. It was more of an experiment to see if I could accomplish it. What did I...

Writing Out Your Expenses Is Helpful

UNITED STATES—I am technically savvy, but anyone who knows me is aware that I am old school at the same time. Before we had cellphones, the infamous blackberry, the iPad, the desktop computer, the laptop, there was something most people used to keep track of things: paper. Nothing is more helpful to remembering things than jotting them down on...
