What Would Happen If You Stopped Sleeping?

I can remember being so bummed when I looked at my work schedule and it stated that I had to arrive at work at 10:30am. When I was in college, I worked as a server at Chi Chi's Mexican Restaurant.

At that time, I had no idea what my work life would be like today.

Is The ‘I Love Balls’ Campaign for Testicular Cancer Awareness Too Much?

I have always been a huge supporter of the 'Race for the Cure' to promote breast cancer awareness and help find a cure.

So, I'm not sure why this campaign shocked me but, it did.

Yesterday, August 13th, was International Left-Handers Day, which may not seem like a big deal, especially for right-handers, but for left-handers, it's a day to be thankful for who we are.
