Why Flying Home From BlogU Nearly Killed Me

Every year I try to attend at least one conference where I will hone my skill of writing, and network with others in the same genre. This year I attended an amazing conference called BlogU – short for University. It is held on the beautiful campus of the all girls college Notre Dame University in Baltimore, Maryland.

My Life Right Now: The Real Story

What is it really like to be me? Often times I wonder, does anybody care? But then, just as I’m feeling insecure, something or someone comes along and makes me feel really special and important.

Never Forget 9/11 | WIRL Project

9/11 Never Forget

We should never forget September 11, 2001.  However, we do need to move on, to continue living our lives without fear. I was in the 11th grade sitting in English class.  I remember one slightly eccentric teacher running down the hallway between classes that morning screaming, “We are under attack – We are at war.”  Life would never be the same. I presume, to avoid panic on that pristin... Read More »

Employee’s Confess: The Downside of Working for Apple

  Apple ranks as one of the top tech companies in the world. I mean, who doesn’t have or use an Apple gadget these days?
