Life Hack-- Life Lesson When to Change Lanes

 

One life hack, Life lesson that I have learned is that when there is an obstruction in traffic, the best thing for me to do is get over as safely and quickly as possible before alerting other drivers by turning on my blinker.


 

Every time I turn on my blinker, an ambush of cars driving behind me get over and I find myself trapped begging to get over.


 

I think this is a ...

What Men Secretly Want

“Southside with You” Movie Review

My daughter and I went to see the movie, “Southside with You” a movie about the first date with President Barack Obama and his wife, gorgeous wife, First Lady, Michelle Obama.

By Cassandra George Sturges


My mother would always say, “People in this world will make you or break you.” When I was a know-it-all-teenager, I remember arguing with my mother about not letting people change who you are as a person.


Every time my mother said that I would cringe and say to her, “How could you let other people’s words and actions change who you are. It is so weak minded and pathetic.” My moth...

Prince Committed Suicide

By Cassandra George Sturges

 

Just a week or so prior to hearing of the news of Prince’s escape from his Earth suit, I told my students that unlike, Tupac Shakur, John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix, Michael Jackson, and Kurt Cobain—Prince was not going to be an iconic legend because he was going to live to be an old man. I made jokes using an old man voice about how Prince would be singing “Little Red Corvette” with a cane barely...

Ok let's be honest, it's after 2 AM and I need to go to bed and get ready to teach my 9 AM class. I have not done my taxes and today is April 12, 2016. I have 40 papers to grade and over 200 assignments to grade for my online classes. I must be insane to be writing you now.

Shonda Rhimes, I know you are not going to read this because I am not insulting gay people or protesting to save Jake's life or complaining about the plot line of Scandal.

I am assuming that yo...

Fifty Shades of Grey Spiritual Lessons


 By Cassandra George Sturges


Fifty Shades of Grey is probably my favorite book in the world—but not for the reasons that most people may think. Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele’s sexual relationship was mildly entertaining to me. It’s not that I am a prude—it was simply just sex—how many mammals emotionally connect and rep...

Can We Really Change our Race and Gender?


Cassandra George-Sturges


This is a very delicate topic. One of things that I find difficult about the mainstream media is that they seem to force people to take extreme positions of right or wrong, as opposed to analyzing layers of truth in between.


I don’t have a problem with Bruce Jenner referring to himself as Caitlyn Jenner or Rachel Dolezal, t...

Shonda Rhimes Scandal is Lacking Love


By Cassandra George Sturges


Shonda Rhimes is the only person, I have ever tweeted a personal message. In fact, I learned how to tweet just so that I could tweet her an urgent, urgent message last season—I begged her not to kill Jake Ballard. I don’t think she read my tweet—but that’s not important—because Jake is still on the show. Whew!


I have ne...
