The Joys of Unemployment

th (3).jpg

It seems like an oxymoron: the joys of unemployment; but, there are certainly joys. If you’re unemployed, without a college degree or certification you’re in a great position. You can take a look at all of the opportunities that are in front of you. This will allow you to reevaluate your career interests and passions; and also applied to those who were employed, but recently got laid off from their job. Maybe your current career choice doesn’t hold the same zest and appeal that it once did. read more

Net Neutrality: Should the internet be FREE?!

Penny-Nickel-Dime-Quarter-Presidents-on-US-Coins-56d8e0373df78c5ba023fdd2It’s 12/31/2017 and surprisingly- even my own sanity is free at this point.

My dog, Teddy, and I went on a brisk walk through the freezing cold. We walked down Berkshire Valley Road- an incredibly busy main road that runs through most of my town in Jefferson. Cars were flying past us throughout the entire walk. The people looked at my dog and I- women often find my dog as cute (maybe they find me cute as well).

Anyhow, we turned onto Cozy Lake Road- a 3 mile road that runs past a small lake called Cozy Lake. Teddy approached the shore of the lake and stared into the lake- probably looking for potential prey- or maybe fancying himself in the lake’s reflection. Teddy decided to enter the Cozy Lake community and I allowed it to happen- I’m a dictator. We walked up a steep hill; slowly we climbed the hill, mine and Teddy’s breath getting more heavy and intense. Of course Teddy stopped to smell the pee stained snow at every chance he could get. read more
