Over the past year I’ve been thinking a lot about self-worth and personal value, even more intensely since moving to Indiana. What is the meaning of self-worth? Is it the size of one’s house? Professional reputation? Standing the community? Annual earnings? Being well-traveled or well-read? What is the meaning of self-worth? Is it the number… Continue reading What is the meaning of self-worth?
I have a lot of respect for the New York Times. They have gotten it right most of the time, which is why they are called the newspaper of record. So how could they have gotten it so wrong this time? After the New York Times published the anonymous Op-Ed piece, I wasn’t sure what… Continue reading The New York Times Got It Wrong
I’m a die-hard progressive and very liberal, and proud of being so. Our country has only truly moved forward in meeting the ideals of our Constitution by progressive liberals. That said, in November, when the current party becomes the minority party in at least the House of Representatives (and maybe by some miracle, the Senate),… Continue reading Do Not Impeach
Hello World! A lot has happened since my last post, which has kept me away. Hopefully life will settle into a little bit of a routine again now. This morning, to help take care of my mental health, I went to Eagle Creek Park to commune with nature. Last time I took the wrong lens… Continue reading A Walk in the Park
All I wanted was some bottled water. If you know me, you know I’m a bottled water snob. The Aquafina at the hotel was not going to cut it. I’d rather die of thirst then drink Aquafina as it always tastes sandy. One would think finding water would be easy in a place like Chicago.… Continue reading Being CSL is Frustrating
Hello World. I’m back after a long break. Life became very busy and isn’t letting up yet. This morning I have my second interview for a position I really want. It is for the principalship of the school where my teaching career started. All of my major classes were held at the school along with… Continue reading Ties Scare Me
These are just from 2018. I’ll ask again, “Are the lives of these children really worth less than common sense gun regulation?” Did best I could with picture credits.
Recently at my youngest’s annual well-check with the doctor, the doctor asked the amount of daily screen time allowed. When I mentioned screen time is based upon grades and phones are taken at bedtime, the doctor stated we should share what we do with other parents. This is not the first time someone as said… Continue reading Whose Phone Is It?
I’ll start by saying I don’t know Michael Cohen, don’t know anyone who knows Michael Cohen, and this is all purely hypothetical, an alternative reality if you will as there is no proof for this alternative reality. We won’t know the truth until Mr. Cohen tells us. Until then, maybe Michael Cohen likes it. What… Continue reading Maybe Michael Cohen Likes It?
We are hearing a lot about the 18-24 year old demographic since the Parkland, FL tragedy. They have become more vocal and put together a March on Washington in a very short time, drawing over 800,000 participants, one of the largest protests in history; this count doesn’t include those who participated around the world. I’m… Continue reading 18-24 Year Olds, Please Save Us
