1920s_underwood_typewriter_by_svander1-d5m2l09
They’re not the most convenient, easy to use, or forgiving machines, but there was a point in time where typewriters were the staple of society. While truly productive life has moved on to more user-friendly methods of production (like Microsoft Word), it’s good to be able to appreciate them for what they are– niche, a little obnoxious, and a quite a bit of fun. There’s something intensely satisfying about putting ink to paper, but, if you’re anything like me, your handwriting rivals that of the medical industry. While I may notRead More

Need some life advice? Watch as this High School Football player, Apollos Hester, gives us a motivational speech for the ages. Apollos reminds us that nothing happens over night. Nothing happens out of the gate. Things start slow, but you just need to keep pushing and finish strong. All that’s needed to be successful is the right attitude.

It’s been said that with the new generation entering the workforce lots of common traditions are being uplifted. For example, our fathers and their fathers before them usually, typically stayed at their job until retirement. You know, like 30+ years at the same desk with the same company. Current studies show that millennials (anyone born between the years 1980-1995) can barely stay focused on a video that lasts more than 1:46 or listen to a new song that lasts more than 2:15. This idea of keeping the same job forRead More

The Art of Instagram: Craig C tha Artist

For those who are not yet aware, Instagram has created a rather popular way for artists to gain recognition (not surprisingly, since Instagram is based solely on photos, as opposed to Facebook, Twitter, etc.) Craig C tha Artist, known by many for his vibrant and unique style of urban art, introduced me to the world of Instagram art. He is great at what he does and, therefore, was naturally my first choice to be featured artist. I spoke with Craig on the phone and learned a bit about his backgroundRead More

3 Questions to Job Perfection

Around every corner, there is an enormous amount of competition that is found among avid job-seekers for a few select positions that in many ways general enough that the position may be filled by someone with little work experience or an education beyond high school. Yet, the list of qualifications for even the lowest positions in a company are beginning to develop expectations that did not exist in former years in hopes of recruiting some of the best young professionals. This behavior is unknowingly creating a gap between those that investedRead More

Have you ever felt like everyone around you knows exactly what they’re doing, and you seem to be the only one blundering about blindly with little to no clue of what you’re actually doing? Me too. All the time actually. But here’s the thing: I’m under the deep suspicion that in fact no one knows what they’re actually doing. We’re all just making it up as we walk along the path we think we’re supposed to take. Isn’t that scary? Or maybe it isn’t scary. Perhaps this is just life theRead More

I don’t make $100,000 a year and I doubt anyone else reading this does. I’ve waded into the waters inhabited by those vicious fish that do however and in my experiences they’re typically a delusional, chum hungry school whose collective philosophy is founded in the belief that “success is only measurable by monetary gain”. If you reap profit, you’re a fellow god and if you don’t? You’re a peon and solely responsible for your rotten break on the festering underside of the heap. “He should have gone to college! SheRead More

I think it’s safe to say we’ve all taken those personalty quizzes to see which character from (insert your favorite TV show) you are, or which animal best fits your personality. I admit, at times they can get pretty addicting because who doesn’t want to know which Michael Jackson Dance Move You Are? As fun as these quizzes are, they really aren’t a productive use of your time because you really don’t get any real insight of who you truly are. Fortunately for those of you who have a tendency toRead More
