Rotten Tomatoes let me down like a bad friend the other day when I trusted its 95% review of Enough Said to the point I was willing to drop $8.75 (the "discounted" matinee price) to see it in theaters. I suppose Rotten Tomatoes cannot be solely blamed for the over-rating of this film. I let my guard down and raised my expectations which, in…Continue

The tone of this blog is about to get more emotional than the end of Marley & Me (no idea why my mind just went there since I haven't read it... maybe Old Yeller is a better example. Apparently I've got depressing dog literature on the brain). Now that my time as a volunteer is officially…Continue

The tone in this blog may come across as inadvertently aggressive as the environment in which I am writing it is far from conducive of any other emotion. My tired feet are considering carrying out a mutiny against me, as I have been standing on a bus for which they sold too many tickets for about an hour now. The worst part…Continue

Time. Every human has the same amount of it every day: 24 hours exactly. One trip around the sun to get done all you need, one-third or more of which is typically spent asleep. The combination of listening to Pink Floyd’s “Time” and pondering over questions like these makes my mind hearken back to a…Continue

I wrote a post similar to this called Fly but I'm just going to elaborate on it. To be successful, you have to accept the risk of failing. It sounds pretty easy but it's not. Most people prefer not associating with failure at all, so…Continue
For the last thirty years, one man has held the torch for the Liberty Movement- that man is former Texas Congressman Ron Paul. Dr. Paul has been the leading voice on issues surrounding foreign policy, the war on drugs, the Federal Reserve, and our ever-expanding government.

By now, we all know that the mainstream media is merely a propaganda machine for the administration. So while Miley was out strutting her "groove thang" at the VMA awards, twerking and jerking amongst big-butt furries, our military was positioning war ships off the coast of Syria. It's amazing how the…Continue

Be progressive. Always do something. Never accept a situation as fate because as long as you live, you can always do something about anything. So the current bending over of the global economy hurts but shouldn't defeat you. Yeah, the greedy economists and investment bankers deserve to be shot, but you mustn't let that distract you. You have a job to do, it's…Continue

How many of us have gotten feedback from our management that you ought to manage your professional image at work? “Speak a bit softer, wear a bit more formal, refrain from being so candid….”
To us as Gen Ys out there, these appear to us as restrictions and we feel very uncomfortable. We feel that we are being shortchanged for who we really are. We fear that we lose our authenticity, our identity.
We are not afraid to be out there, showing who we really are or what we can do.…Continue

Millennials, also known as Generation Y, are not your parents’ generation; they do things differently and in a big way. Millennials also happen to be the largest generation; some 80 million individuals born after 1980 and before the early 2000s make up this young but influential demographic. Nowhere is this influence being felt more than in the retail industry: …Continue
