Posted September 28, 2014 by Ian Warner

No matter how much an income is, you should never just depend on one! The world tells us that we should get a job and use that money to live on. While we work, we hope that we don’t get fired because if it were to happen we go to from making a sum to […]

5 Ways to Happiness Through the ADHD Golden Rule

Posted September 18, 2014 by Zoë Kessler, BA, B.Ed.

Learning about ADHD late in life has taught me a few things about how I’d like to be treated. There were many times in the past (before my diagnosis) that things might have gone more smoothly if I’d understood myself better, and what I needed from others.

Coach This: Celebrating the ADHD Journey

Posted July 31, 2014 by Zoë Kessler, BA, B.Ed.

The 1% Has More Solidarity Than We Do

Posted July 7, 2014 by Stephen Elliott-Buckley

The 1% are claiming we have it out for them; that if we don’t tone down the rhetoric and stop calling them names like “the contemptuous rich,” we might end up starting a class war. But they already know there’s a class war, and it’s been going on for generations. Today, the rich are winning […]

First Day

Posted June 2, 2014 by Lyn Brown

I got up nice and early to hit the ground running today. After a relaxing weekend up at the lake I was rested and ready to face what may come my way in my new job. I had that “first day of school” feeling churning in my stomach and the tingle I get whe…
