Why I Support My “MLM” Friends

Why I Support My “MLM” Friends

One of my favorite experiences in friendships has been through these MLM parties! I have made a best friend from one of my distributors, and another great friend in another!

To Be… or Not to Be… or Whatever I Want to Be

To Be… or Not to Be… or Whatever I Want to Be

While we are nowhere near the completion of our journey, I realized we are engaged in a greater discovery period than we ever realized. We are discovering more about ourselves as parents, lovers, friends, guests, and the list goes on and on.     I […]

The 10 Best Comedy Films of All Time: Statistically

The 10 Best Comedy Films of All Time: Statistically

We stumbled onto an article the other day listing the top 100 comedy films of all time. I disagreed with the selection, and placement, of many films on that list. It is moments like these, I wish I had never set foot in academia. My brain [...]
BOOK REVIEW: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child – Parts One and Two by John Tiffany (Adaptation), Jack Thorne, J.K. Rowling

BOOK REVIEW: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child – Parts One and Two by John Tiffany (Adaptation), Jack Thorne, J.K. Rowling

Not a complete waste of time, but I saw this coming. I wish I could give this 2.5 stars. Two is a bit harsh, three is far too generous. I thought most of the character development was decent, given how concise it was. Certain aspects, […]

BOOK REVIEW: The Cartel by Don Winslow

BOOK REVIEW: The Cartel by Don Winslow

Epic. Dark. Realistic. I was amazed at how true to life this story seemed. I have no personal experience in the cartel world, but what little I know seems to coincide with this narrative. If not for the voice and distinctive style of fiction, you […]

BOOK REVIEW: A Douche Walks Into a Bar…: An Encyclopedia of Douchebaggary by Jordan Eyre

BOOK REVIEW: A Douche Walks Into a Bar…: An Encyclopedia of Douchebaggary by Jordan Eyre

This is the most hilarious, and accurate, representation of the douche-opolis we call earth. Eyre writes in a way that makes you feel like you’re listening to a buddy describe the megadouche they just ran into. This is a perfect gift for your friends and […]

BOOK REVIEW: The Champion’s Mind: How Great Athletes Think, Train, and Thrive by Jim Afremow

BOOK REVIEW: The Champion’s Mind: How Great Athletes Think, Train, and Thrive by Jim Afremow

Repetition works, and Afremow reiterated that in form and focus. This is good information. It was short, sweet, and to the point. I found most of the information was a reminder, rather than a novelty, though I did experience some revelation. The information is applicable […]

BOOK REVIEW: After the Prophet by Lesley Hazleton

BOOK REVIEW: After the Prophet by Lesley Hazleton

This book was fascinating. What’s more? It was not nearly as dry as I thought it would be. Hazleton delivers the information with a narrative arc while chronicling the events that lead to the split between Sunni and Shia Islam. I fully appreciated the light […]

BOOK REVIEW: Misery by Stephen King

BOOK REVIEW: Misery by Stephen King

Misery was truly terrifying. Often, I found myself taking my eyes off the page just to breathe heavily, almost reorienting myself to reality. Annie Wilkes may represent the most terrifying and realistic portrayal of an antagonist I could ever imagine. I loved that the protagonist was […]

BOOK REVIEW: How to Relax: Stop Being Busy, Take a Break and Get Better Results While Doing Less by Martin Meadows

BOOK REVIEW: How to Relax: Stop Being Busy, Take a Break and Get Better Results While Doing Less by Martin Meadows

This was an incredibly quick read. It appears Martin Meadows has made his mark publishing bite-sized summations of more robust research. While his detractors call this cheap, I disagree, calling it well-achieved. Everything in this book was a reminder. Nothing was new or revelatory and […]
