A Typical Friday’s Child

A Typical Friday’s Child

I was born on a Friday morning, and I recently returned to the house where I was born on a Friday, almost 30 years later, a typical Friday's child. The house was a moment froze in time, as if nothing had changed since I walked out the front door at the tender age of 8. I still remember the dimly lit hallway leading upstairs, the flocked red wallpaper, and the salt and pepper carpeting. Nothing had changed in all these years I spent away, stepping out the front door at age 8 as a small child, raised on promises. I made my way through life, living, growing, and thriving, only to return...

It’s an admiral position that not many people in society are prepared to serve as, which is why we are all always so grateful for these brave individuals. Well, one firefighter...

The following article was written by Peter Jackson, and was originally published by Foreign Policy on March 1, 2019. While having a 9 to 5 job might be considered as a stable and risk-free way to acquire monthly income, being self-employed has more than a few benefits over it.

Thomas W. P. Slatin – An Urban Adventurer, Writer, And Photographer

The following article was written by Petar Mikonoss, and was originally published by The Frisky on February 28, 2019. There is one thing we can all agree – although our society is constantly developing it seems that certain things are falling behind, and stable employment is one of those. The unemployment rates throughout Western countries have been higher than in the past few decades, and that is not a good trend to keep up with. The USA is an excellent example of people having trouble to keep their 9 to 5 job and provide for their family each and every month. On the other hand,...

Meet The Blogger

The following interview was conceived by Bryoni Burns at bryoniburnsblog.com. Introduce yourself, why did you start blogging?I started creating websites in 1996, and by 1998 I had landed a job in IT. For many years, I created websites in HTML using a variety of software suites. As time went on, my sites grew to massive sizes, making maintenance and organization a nightmare.
