  • Maybe it’s because I didn’t grow up with the type of technology to which today’s youth have access. Maybe it’s because my vision has worsened exponentially over the past few years; or maybe, just maybe I’ve discovered yet another flaw in a structure not quite up to code. Whatever it may be I’ve come to the realization that computers make me nauseous.

  • Events that cause negative stress are known as traumatic events. According the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, traumatic events are “marked by a sense of horror, helplessness, serious injury or the threat of serious injury or death…and affect survivors, rescue workers, and the friends and relatives of victims who have been involved.”

  • Once upon a time I had $3 pants.
    Dark, forest-y green rayon pinstriped dress slacks, with teeny flecks of black in the fabric. Regularly $45 marked down to $14.29 with an additional 30 percent off, then another 70 percent off -- $3 pants!
    I was so excited about my purchase that when I got them home I immediately put them in a place of honor in my closet and sat on my bed to admire my precious find.
    That’s when I realized I had nothing to wear with them. After much thought I decided a collarless black jacket would be perfect to go with my $3 pants.
