Shut It, Babe – SketcBook Pro for iPad (2017)

Have you ever met people who always be so fussy about whatever you do? Always think that their opinion is right and makes you feel unsure about what you do?

Sometimes you may hear something like: Why you seem so skinny? Oh are you gaining weight? You never post the picture with him again, are you guys done? Your style is so outdated! That blush color makes your cheeks look chubbier! You want to be an actor? Just enjoy the life you have now, don’t seek something impossible, darling. And… etc.

Wear those unmatched color outfits you like, gain weight, lose weight, get serious, or break up, be an actor/artist/musician do whatever things that suit you well. Their opinion doesn’t matter for you, you have your own choice so don’t let anybody control your decision with their opinion.

Maybe some people are…

“Life Begins at Conception: a Mother’s View on Abortion.”

Mothers Make Art

I met Jen a year ago when she joined Maker Mamas a group I organized for Mother’s who make art. She has come frequently bringing her work to share with the group and participate in discussions about art and motherhood. It wasn’t until I began posting about this current project, that I learned from Jen that she had pro-life views and volunteered to share them with me.

Yesterday we took a walk around the 2-mile golf course trail. To start the conversation I asked Jen when she first became aware of Pro-life issues and when it was that she began to embrace them. Jen explained that in college she identified as anti-Statist (the belief that individuals have sovereignty over and above the state). But it wasn’t until she married her husband, who is Catholic, that her pro-life position immersed. Jen told me that her husband Michael, is the chairman of the…

The Golden Rule of Investing

Dividend Income Investors

What is the “Golden Rule of Investing”?

 “Think of all money you earn as a Potential source of Future Income”  

Don’t think in terms of how much money you have or have saved but rather how much money you can generate from what you have.

In other words, when you receive your pay check, of course you have to pay your bills. And some bills you will always have – electric, water, gas, phone, mortgage but those that you don’t is where you can get the money to finance your future.  A great example is your car. A lot of people buy a car – and of course they buy into the marketing that owning that luxury or high priced sports car is more fulfilling somehow. But what you need to consider how much future income did you give up for that little bit of prestige you got from…

Not OK, Oklahoma (The Abortion Bill)

SARA BUCHWALD (grade 11)

“OKLAHOMA, WHAT ARE YOU DOING?” was the text that popped up on my phone along with a screenshot, the contents of which were indistinguishable from the home screen. As I unlocked my phone to see what had caused such a dramatic reaction, I was not prepared for what I was faced with. The screenshot was of a BBC article and in a boldfaced black font the words, “A proposal which would force women to get permission from their sexual partner to allow them to have an abortion has passed the first hurdle in Oklahoma” jumped onto my screen. Any humor I had seen in such a seemingly over-the-top text vanished as I saw the severity of the single sentence.

According to Humphrey, the state legislator who wrote the bill, the fathers of these fetuses deserve a say in the decision of a body that…

Confession: I dabble in Humanist Philosophy.

Back in 2008, I briefly joined a Humanist Forum group. One of the first meetings introduced the concept of Libertarianism to the conversation. It was an interesting and lively debate.

I was not surprised to learn that Libertarians were just as guilty as other humans at picking and choosing what particular sections of philosophy they ascribe to… It seemed that Libertarianism, in the United States at least, had become the opposite…

GET UP INSANELY EARLY

It sounds scary, we know, but consider what would happen if instead of watching reruns of bad movies at night, you went to bed at a reasonable hour, thus allowing yourself to wake up early and be SUPER productive?

Waking up before anybody else allows you to work out the logistics of the day to come, track your time, and (most importantly) unplug for a few hours.

Take Paul Dejoe, who gets up at 4 a.m. (you heard that right) for maximum productivity:

What I was depriving myself from was time in the day where there was no pressure and no expectations. For the same reasons that I felt most creative on Saturday mornings and on planes, 4 a.m. has become a place of productive peace. That feeling is why I love what I do. I don’t need a vacation. I don’t need to step…
