Recently, I joined the ranks of woo-woo, minimalist hipsters everywhere, and read The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up, by Marie Kondo. I decided to read this book that I had so often mocked, because a) it’s helpful to occasionally know something about what you are mo...

If you ever visit Tokyo, you might be struck by the sprawling cityscape, the scarily punctual metro system or the swarming masses of people. But what struck me were the vending machines everywhere I looked. They’re such a simple machine - put your money in, get your dr...

Some things are just undeniable. For instance, Netflix is an amazing service that has brought to our screens some of the greatest TV shows ever produced and given us a chance to see some of the most critically-acclaimed films. However, in a human world there is no such...

It's midnight and I walk into the kitchen to get myself a glass of water before I go to bed. Suddenly my eyes light up. A package of Oreos is sitting on the counter just calling out to be eaten.

Nope I won't do it. I know I'm not supposed to have sugar before bed. But o...

In 1863, following the Battle at Gettysburg, Lincoln, in a simple and ill-received speech, stated, “The world will little note nor long remember what we say here.” It is hard to believe that someone with Lincoln’s intelligence truly believed that, but then again he had...

Learn to assert yourself. It’s an unfamiliar thought, but when we leave the confines of our high schools, we enter the simple world of the workplace or college, or both. We encounter people who are more willing to follow than to lead.

Like most people, you may sometimes find yourself stuck in a rut. A place where, instead of moving forward, you are moving backwards. Your daily routine becomes a boring ride at the theme park that no longer excites you. What if there was a way to bring you back to the...

We all have a best friend. (If not, it may be that we are so socially handicapped that it is impossible for us to make one—in which case there is a 50% chance that we will probably be convicted of first degree murder...ok, maybe not something as bad as murder, but you...

There you are. Sitting in a chair in your room not sure what to do next. Or maybe you’re sitting among a group of friends - witty remarks are being thrown around, people are laughing, yelling, music is blaring - life is happening. In that moment in time, you are there....

Growing up a teenage girl is a common subject in conversations, movies, books and songs. Although this may be an entertaining topic, it is a serious matter, especially to me, a teen girl in 2018. A girl’s teen years make her into the woman she is going to be, which is...

So there you are…the moment when you have finally decided you are going to try and do what you’ve got to do. You're going to give yourself to the spiritual life that you know you were meant to have - that you need to have. So the resolution is made - you’ve got to star...

“The Saint is a medicine because he is an antidote. Indeed that is why the saint is often a martyr: he is mistaken for a poison because he is an antidote. He will generally be found restoring the world to sanity by exaggerating whatever the world neglects, which is by...

It was not a spur of the moment thing. It seems that so many things today are. But not this endeavor. To be honest, it was a long time coming. This world is crazy. You look around and you
