I thought of this topic a week ago and recent events pushed me to proceed with it. People see this ketchup bottle and don’t think much of it. This bottle was sitting on my computer desk and when I looked at it, I burst into tears. It’s the perfect example of grief. No, grief isn’tContinue reading “The Cruelty of Grief”
The first thing that popped in my head, and the example I used in my paper, was Disney’s Robin Hood animated movie. It is one of my favorite movies. Robin and Maid Marion are foxes, Little John is a big bear who looks a lot like Baloo from The Jungle Book.
Let’s talk about crap, shall we? More specifically, let’s talk about cat crap. I, for one, do not like messing with the cats’ litter boxes. They smell, they are heavy, they are messy, and the whole thing’s just gross. With four indoor cats, it’s a necessity, however. About five years ago, I invested in twoContinue reading “Litter Robot Open Air vs. CatGenie”
I just had one of my delicious modified Reubens, so I thought I would share my “recipe.” I’m sure I’m not the only one who dislikes corned beef and Swiss cheese! Before we start, I need to look up why Reubens are called Reubens because now I’m curious. Okay, so it’s supposedly the name ofContinue reading “Modified Reuben”

The annoying, “Okay, Boomer,” crowd is Gen Z, or “Zoomers,” NOT Millennials. Saying Millennials are just now reaching the age to join the workforceContinue reading “Dear Zoomers”
We could all use a little less editing in our lives, amirite? It is super frustrating to spend hours working on an article or post and feel proud of it, only to get an email with “Revision Request” or “Rejected” in the subject line. Or maybe your work is full of comments in the marginsContinue reading “Grammarly vs. ProWritingAid vs. Hemingway”
Which one is the best? There are so many job or “gig” brokers out there, it’s hard to find the right one. I have used UpWork, Freelancer, and Fiverr, and all three have pros and cons. But which one is best? Is there a best? I will share my experience with each. UpWork I have beenContinue reading “UpWork, Fiverr, and Freelancer”
Like many, many writers struggling to gain experience and an online presence, I was a victim of more than one content mill. It happens to people in all industries and it’s a disgusting practice that will never go away, unfortunately. What’s a Content Mill? In a nutshell, content mills are basically brokers. They have theContinue reading “Content Mills”
