International Women’s Day Is A Thing?

March 9th, 2019

As you were scrolling through your phones or computers yesterday, you may have noticed it was International Women’s Day. I personally have been a woman for quite some time now and was completely unaware of this magnificent opportunity to celebrate my existence, until now. Anyone else? I was even more shocked to find out that the day of observance was initially organized in New York back in 1909. What?! It turns out the earliest Women’s Day observance, called “National Woman’s Day,” was held on February 28, 1909, in New York, organized by the Socialist Party of America... Read More

Goodbye Winter Blues!

March 6th, 2019

Are you done with winter? Are these long, dark and unnecessarily cold days giving you the Winter Blues? Well, have no fear. There is light at the end of the tunnel! Both figuratively and literally. You don’t need a doctor or scientist to tell you it can be hard to keep your spirits up after months of being stuck indoors, due to snow and cold temperatures. Even if you are an outdoorsy winter person, the shortened days and lack of sunshine can still have an impact on your psyche. By this time of the year, the number of Midwesterners who don’t want warmer days are definitely dwindling day by day.... Read More

Death and Taxes, Are They Both Really That Certain?

March 3rd, 2019

Eccentric founding father Benjamin Franklin once wrote in a letter from 1789, “in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” This quote has been referred to repeatedly for the past 230 years. And while it may ring true to most, there have probably been just as many undiscovered tax evasion cases as references to his famous words. Still haven’t heard of any eventual death evasions, even though the jury is still out on Walt Disney. The morbid reality we all live with every day, is that our physical existence here is temporary. We know this. While I’m sure the number... Read More

The Evolution of Social Media, From BBS to Momo

February 28th, 2019

We hear the concerns all the time, “social media is ruining the world,” “children no longer interact face-to-face thanks to social media,” and the latest one, which can simply be referred to as the “Momo Challenge”. Merriam-Webster’s definition of ‘social media’ explains it plainly as, “forms of electronic communication through which users create online communities to share information, ideas, personal messages and other content.” While some may think social media is a new concept, with applications such as Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Snapchat, Whatsapp and Twitter taking... Read More

Follow Your Dreams, Then Keep Going

February 26th, 2019

Whether from a childhood mentor, a speech at the Oscars, or that poster hanging in the office collecting dust, one phrase is repeated to us over and over throughout our lives – “Follow Your Dreams”.  But what exactly does that mean? Does it mean that if you are reading this while sitting at a job you don’t enjoy or looking around at the laundry and dishes piling high that you aren’t following your dreams? Because seriously, who dreams about waking up and dedicating their time and energy to things that they don’t feel any type of self-gratification from? Most dreams and goals, at the... Read More
