I am frustrated, and I will tell you why. My Facebook and Twitter feeds constantly blow up about this issue or that issue. Tons of people visualize themselves as keyboard warriors who hope to change the world with memes. I’m getting tired of the online whining. We all live in such a privileged society here […]
This was certainly an interesting week chock full of insults. The culprits were a teenager and Equifax. Let’s start with the annoying one, the teen. A boy on our son’s baseball team visibly cringed when I told him his sneakers were phat. When I asked him what was wrong, he told me that was an […]
Net Neutrality Explained: The myths and misinformation explained in plain English.
While everyone keeps posting memes that basically point out how the “other side” is wrong , I have yet to see someone ask a genuine question. It’s as if everyone I know suddenly has a triple PHD in politics and life in general.

I am a consumer of information like you wouldn’t believe. I devour news and learning at the same frantic pace that I like to be outdoors and enjoy nature. Apparently, it’s all or nothing with me and the way I like to experience things. That’s why I am starting my Week in Review with Cafecito […]
Well who knew that elementary schools were so burdened with politics? I almost miss the ignorance I was experiencing pre PTA. Now that I’m involved with the org, I’m learning about the red tape first hand. I also attended title 1 parent meeting, which was enlightening to say the least. The title 1 thing had […]
