Early Bird Or Late Bird?

UNITED STATES—Are you an early bird or a late bird? If you’re asking me I am an early bird. I think I’ve been an early bird since I was a kid cutting lawns to make money before transitioning to actual work. I would never want to be a late bird as I call some people. I’m not a night...

September 11: 20 Years Later

UNITED STATES—Where were you on September 11, 2001? It was a day that will always live in infamy for any American who was born and old enough to remember where we were attacked on our own soil. The World Trade Centers in New York City were under attack, and collapsed after members of Al Queda hijacked two airplanes and...

The Fun Of Going To The Fair

UNITED STATES—If there is anybody who knows me they fully understand that I am an adrenaline junkie, I love a good thrill. I got to experience that over the holiday weekend with a visit to my city’s local fair with my family. I personally love roller coasters, but this time around, there were no coasters, but I did notice...

Triggering Nightmares

UNITED STATES—As a psychology undergraduate I was super intrigued in my abnormal psych course when we studied all things dreams. What they mean? Why we have them and ways that we can best understand what they mean. I am a firm believer that just thinking about something for a minute (actually less than that) can actually trigger a dream...

Losing A Pet Sucks

UNITED STATES—I have lost a pet in the past before, hell to be honest I’ve lost 3 pets in my lifetimes. Each dog lived more than a decade. However, in this past week I lost my Schnauzer who was 17 years old, and it struck me like a ton of bricks. When most animals are sick you have an...

The College Hustle

UNITED STATES—Right now, a host of students are getting ready to head back to college or to step onto a college campus for the first time. College life can be scary people when you first step onto that campus and get a taste of independence as an adult. I remember my first days on the campus of Michigan State...

A Cellphone Is Not A Must People!

UNITED STATES—I recently had a conversation with a few family members at a small gathering and we talked about the past. How things used to be simple. When we did not have the internet, there was no social media and the biggest one of them all: no cellphones. Of course, the youngsters thought we were crazy discussing how cellphones...

Exercise Regimen Requires Discipline

UNITED STATES—If there is one thing I have learned about exercising is that it requires discipline and a plan. For those out there who work full-time jobs, or more than one part-time job, getting that exercise in on a daily basis can indeed be a chore. How so? There are days where you are just mentally and physically exhausted....

Sleep And Stress Go Hand-And-Hand

UNITED STATES—I have not been sleeping well lately, particularly in the past week and I have been trying to pinpoint exactly what has been happening to lead to chaos for me. Well, there is one thing that suddenly changed; my work schedule swapped from midday to afternoon hours to overnight. Yes, so I had to readjust my sleep pattern. For...

Closet Clutter Clarity

UNITED STATES—I did something this week that made me so proud of myself: I organized my closet fully. I mean I took everything that was on hangers, stacked, in boxes, and so much more that I had been ignoring for months. You know sometimes you open that closet, you see all the chaos and the notion of even tackling...
