Why do I torture myself?
Why do I intentionally read about current events that I know will enrage me?
I’ll tell you why, because I’d rather be inform than be ignorant. I think many public officials should learn that lesson.
I feel like we’re being thrown so much sensationalism that we’re losing what truth is and used to be. We can no longer trust the words written and said because we can’t trust the people that provide the information. Continue reading “We the People, All people…”
Where were you on September 11, 2001?
Were you even born?
Did you believe it at first?
Did you watch the second tower get hit? Continue reading “Remember: 9/11/2001”
Hello friends! I’m so very excited to bring to you my interview with the hosts of Unpopular Culture, a podcast that opens your mind to the world around you. Michael Drane and Corey Stewart are two very profound people and I cannot thank them enough for agreeing to be interviewed.
I’ll tell you, I’m a HUGE fangirl of both of them. I’ve listened to every show and have the honor of interacting with them on Facebook, as well. In fact, I love their show and their message so much that I became a cult-follower and donate money to the show each month in the hopes that it helps them reach a broader audience. They don’t preach or insist; they present you with information – which may be new to you – then discuss it.
The subject matter varies from show to show, but you always learn something new. I personally think that’s one of the most important things in life, learning.
I planned to make this a two part post, but the more I thought about it, the more it made sense to combine it and to let you all embrace all that is Unpopular Culture. These two people, along with Justin and Ryan (special co-hosts) have created a space in the podcasting world that is unlike anything I have listened to thus far.
Without any more babble from me…I’m excited to introduce you to Michael Drane and Corey Stewart!!!! Continue reading “Unpopular Culture…The Interview”
A vivid and mesmerizing novel about the extraordinary woman who married and worked with one of the greatest scientists in history.
What secrets may have lurked in the shadows of Albert Einstein’s fame? His first wife, Mileva “Mitza” Marić, was more than the devoted mother of their three children—she was also a brilliant physicist in her own right, and her contributions to the special theory of relativity have been hotly debated for more than a century.
In 1896, the extraordinarily gifted Mileva is the only woman studying physics at an elite school in Zürich. There, she falls for charismatic fellow student Albert Einstein, who promises to treat her as an equal in both love and science. But as Albert’s fame grows, so too does Mileva’s worry that her light will be lost in her husband’s shadow forever.
A literary historical in the tradition of The Paris Wife and Mrs. Poe, The Other Einstein reveals a complicated partnership that is as fascinating as it is troubling. Continue reading “#BookReview: The Other Einstein by Marie Benedict”
I keep thinking about the policies being enacted in this country and I want to respond but the words evade me. I’m angry, embarrassed and ashamed. Do I really want to open myself up for criticism and ridicule? I embrace constructive debate but refuse to converse with people simply looking to disagree.
I’m angry that people think that refugees fleeing from a civil war and terrorism don’t deserve the relief of a stable environment or at least that’s how I’m perceiving it based on the commentary currently being voiced. Because of a few extremist, an entire population of people are being persecuted. This seems to be something that repeats often in history and yet we never seem to learn. I guess its ok though, as long as they aren’t Christian, right? Continue reading “Immigration…My Two Cents”
