Ramblings

Sports Die-Hards!

UNITED STATES—I love the fall because it ushers in the start of football season. Rather its little league, high school, college or professional. I’ll be honest I’m more of a college fan because the stakes seem a bit higher, we all have our preferences. For the past 2 years I have been attending my nephews Saturday football games. If...

Curbing Bad Habits

UNITED STATES—It is not easy ridding one’s self of a bad habit, but with continual trial and error things do get better. I’ve been on a mission to curb my desire to grab a soda or pop or caffeinated beverage (depending on what region you live in) for years. Things have gotten significantly better. I don’t see myself always...

Is School The Alternative Option To Loan Debt?

UNITED STATES—Anyone who has sought to obtain a higher education is well aware that the cost of a college education, a master’s degree, a law degree, a dental degree, etc. is a lot pricier than we could have ever imagined. I completed my Bachelors of Arts in English, Film Studies and Psychology nearly eight years ago. Some of you might...

Wes Craven, A True Inspiration

UNITED STATES—When I heard the news late Sunday about the death of horror director Wes Craven I was left num. This is a man who literally reinvented the horror genre in my opinion on two occasions: in the 80s (the explosion of the horror genre) and the 90s (with the reinvention of the genre). This was a guy who...

Customer Service Nightmare Continued

UNITED STATES—A few weeks I shared my tale with my cable and internet provider who had been giving me the run-around for weeks about providing terrible service. I had my share with my provider in the past, but this past week solidified something that I’ve known for quite some time: it’s time to bid adieu. Why am I so upset?...

Social Media Feuds

UNITED STATES—I wish we could rewind to 10-15 years ago. This is post the explosion of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr and social media in general. I love the idea of social media because it just allows people to stay in touch with others. What I despise about social media is when people choose to announce a public feud with...

Family Reunion Planning

UNITED STATES—When I was a kid my dad’s family made it a tradition for us to have a family reunion every 2 years. When I reached my teen years, the reunions just stopped. Fast-forward to 2015, and the notion of the family reunion is exploding in full-force. For the first time ever, I attended a family reunion on my...

Explosive Truth

UNITED STATES—How does one get off their chest something that has been bugging them for weeks, months or years? I am someone who has been known to bottle my emotions which I know is not healthy in any given situation, but I always worry about the ramifications of my actions seriously hurting someone’s feelings. I’m starting to realize, that...

Temptation Spending

UNITED STATES—Have you ever had that feeling of wanting to buy something, but knowing in the back of your mind that the funds are not quite there? Of course, we’ve all been put in that situation time and time again. Recently for me the past 3 months have been slightly tough. I’ve seen my bills slightly skyrocket, all the...

Customer Service Nightmare

UNITED STATES—Trust me, the tale I’m about to share with you is based on actual events, things that literally transpired for the past 3 months as I fought tirelessly to get my internet provider to do their job. At the start of June my internet service started to go haywire, so I contacted my provider (I’m choosing to leave...
