I Couldn’t Live Not Knowing

I couldn’t live not knowing where the keys are, Where all the cups and plates are stored. I couldn’t live not knowing where my wallet was, where my cellphone went, or where I can find the instructions for the new vacuum cleaner. I couldn’t live not knowing where the new video game purchase, or two, […]

Folks, Millennials Already Are the Leaders of Today!

During the presidential and general elections, the media made a stink about the Millennials. They went from crybabies (due to not letting go of Bernie Sanders’s loss) to slackers that didn’t go out to the polls to vote.

“A Nation, under God, Indivisible…”

For some strange reason, my generation was seen as lazy, disloyal and well, as losers because of student debt, the abysmal job market post college and our need to stay […]

“I’m in it for the challenge, not the money…”

There is not a day that goes by that I do not wonder if people have it all wrong when it comes to working. We are the only species that pays to live on Planet Earth. That’s insane. I get that we need inspirational sayings to get out of bed and justify life in general […]

A Nerd By Any Other Name Wouldn’t Smell As Sweet…

I am a nerd. I was born in the early 80s and raised on Atari and National Geographic’s World magazine. I am the bridge between Generation X and the Millennials, not quite fitting in both sharing characteristics of both. I was brought into a world at war with drugs, the Russians and the Middle East; […]
