  • Self-evaluations: learning how to accept it all

    Like a lot of twenty-somethings out there, I struggle with self-perception. But it’s not my physical appearance that I have the most trouble accepting.

    What I mean by this is that, often times, I have trouble with my self-evaluation of me.

    Me: at this very moment in my life.

    My usual routine when I first sit down at 9 a.m. in my oh-so-yellow office at the Era is to drink my freshly brewed coffee while scrolling all three of my favorite social media websites.

    Nothing was unusual about my routine the other day.

  • Authentic flavors half a world away

    Thanks to my in-laws’ kind willingness to babysit for a week, I was able to visit hubby in Berlin sans kids. I had never been apart from them for more than three days, so leaving was a bit of a struggle. They cried, I cried and we counted the number of bedtimes until I would be home again.

    But once I got on the plane, it was like, “Kids? What kids?”

    Three days into the trip, hubby asked, “How are the children doing?”

    “Um, I assume they’re doing okay.”

    Questioning land purchase

    I read in the recent Oldham Era that the Oldham County Board of Education recently purchased two tracts of land (a total of 6.57 acres) in Buckner for $180,030. This is the same Board that claimed to be short on funds and increased taxes on Oldham County residents. Their claim then was that the money was needed for teacher pay increases and school operations.

  • Do you struggle with acquired situational narcissism?

    Celebrities tend to misbehave in tiresome and predictable ways, like tantrums, affairs and addictions, and we tend to think they’re spoiled. But one psychiatrist, Cornell’s Robert B. Millman, says they’re not spoiled, they’re sick. The affliction is Acquired Situational Narcissism.
