When I got to college I learned that in order to fit in you had to wear the latest clothes and shoes and it didn't matter if you had a personality or not as long as you were fly that's all that mattered. Luckily I grew out of that phase but sadly some are still there. The Holidays have really become about who has what… Continue

This year has been good. Although I've been without a job with coverage for a year and a half, I've been able to get certified in Final Cut Studio with Adobe certification to come in Photoshop, Illustrator & After Effects.
I've had to eat my own dog food of "your passion can bring the cash in" and by cash in, I don't mean the stereotypical selfish capitalistic way, I mean quality of life.
I have been able to expand on the authoring of the breakfast group… Continue

Dear Representatives, Senators and President Obama:
I humbly ask that you do not allow the proverbial tail on the dog to wag the dog. In other words, DO NOT extend President Bush's tax cuts for the wealthiest 2% of Americans. This is America and here we are to care about each other- take that “suppose to care” terminology out of the equation. Of course, if you have awakened… Continue

We are told that 13 is an unlucky number. The date Friday the 13th is taboo because the Knights Templar were arrested and condemned by the seneschals of Philippe IV, King of France, in a "pre-dawn raid" on Friday, October 13th, 1307. The number 13 has been shunned for centuries. Some architects omit the 13th floor from office buildings to this very day. Is it possible… Continue
