Never Too Late to Restart Your Day

When I was a little girl, my mom and I developed a phrase that we can say to restart our days. It stemmed from the mornings when we were both rushing, her to get to work, and for me to make it to the bus on time. Whenever we were late and snapping at each other in the morning rush we would take the time...

As a concierge/doorman there are three main shifts throughout any given work day and I have had the pleasure (displeasure?) or working all of them at some point during my “journey” as a doorman. Today we focus on the beginning, the morning shift. Better be a morning person if you plan on taking this Herculean task or if not, you better have an acquired taste for caffeine.

The days of owners and general managers being the ones in charge seem to be a thing of the past. It used to be that the players sign the contracts and play with that team for the length of the contract unless ownership or management decides to trade them elsewhere. But lately it seems like it’s the...

I want to feed them the best food, buy them shoes, clothes and everything they need. I try to prepare them for life, teaching them about how to...

As the end of August was quickly approaching, I became once again familiar with the melancholic sadness that is overwhelming at the close of the summer. As much as I adore the turning of the season to fall and look forward to the start of school, I have never been able to shake off sadness at the loss...

As I lie here awake, pondering whether I should write this or not, the thoughts going through my head make it hard for me to ignore. There have been numerous days and nights where I have done this exact same thing. Pondered, considered, and refrained, all due to fear of what others may think and fear ...

Typically, when you think of a private college, you think of prestige, quality, high standards, and dedication to the student base, but as Mercy has shown time and time again, these traits do not seem to apply to their own school. But for the vegans and vegetarians of the college, Mercy has continuously shown that they do not care about us.

A few Rewatches ago I talked about my love of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The tales of the blonde slayer wouldn't be complete without a journey to visit her tall, dark, used to be evil, on-again, off-again boyfriend, Angel. For three seasons the vampire with a soul worked with Buffy and the Scoobies to save ...

Social media has made memes, viral videos, and tweets normalizing that crazy girlfriend and that jealous boyfriend. This territorial mentality is unhealthy and impractical in reality. Men are encouraged to pull as many women as they can with a simple direct message to divide and conquer, and women a...
