Lyft Review

If you have no car, you probably rely on Lyft, an alternative to Uber. To get to work, I rely on Lyft. Here is a review of the cab service. Cheaper then Uber. I am sure this is one perk that many of you will like, Lyft, is cheaper than Uber. For example, I typically pay between $11-12 to get to work in the morning (I catch the city bus home). With Uber, I was paying a little more. The money I am saving is not a lot, but it does help. Accepts Prepaid Debit Cards Unlike Uber, Lyft,...

Habits are hard to break

The saying, “Old habits die hard”, is true, and I can say that from experience. With that being said, I breaking an old habit is the hardest thing I am trying to do. What about you? Here are a few habits I am trying to break:   Working Out-Quiting A few years back, I started working out regularly. For a while, about nine months, I was successful, then I quit. Since then, it has been one crazy rollercoaster ride. I will work out for a week, quit, and start a few months later. This has to change. Living in fear I always let fear get the best of me. I am the one that holds back because fear of failure. However, most people fail many times before being successful. For me to be successful, I am going to have to let this fear go and see what happens. I cannot let fear stop me. Looking for Validation When you look for validation from someone else, you are showing the lack of confidence you have in yourself. This is a habit that I need to change. I should have enough confidence in myself. After all, I am the only one that has to live my life. As mentioned above, it is hard to do. Like anything else, it takes time. I have made some progress, but I have a longs...

Today, blended families, (ones with different races) are common. A few decades ago they were not. With that being said, the 1986 made for television movie, A Fight for Jenny, highlight this issue. More information is written below. The Problem Kelsi, a single mother, and her daughter, Jenny, are white. Things get complicated when she marries her black boyfriend David. Her ex-husband, Ben, thought it was a bad decision for his daughter. To be specific, Ben thought the Kelsi’s marriage would cause Jenny to be ridiculed by her peers. In other words, the social status of Kelsi and David’s marriage would have been too much for Jenny, according to Ben. He filled for full custody and won, Kelsi and David appeal the case and lost on those grounds. The case eventually went to the U.S. Supreme Court and the decision of the lower court was upheld. Why Race should not Matter David and Kelsi did nothing wrong David and Kelsi did nothing wrong. The only thing they were guilty of, is loving one another. There is no law against two people of a different race marrying. It promotes Racism In my opinion, this promotes racism. David was not judge by his character, but his race instead. It did not matter that he worked a full time job or treated Jenny like his own child, the only thing that was...

Could you do it? Adopt your Wives Surname

When a woman gets married, it is customary for her to take on her husband’s last name. She usually changes her name altogether, or hyphenate. However, a few men have taken on the last name of their wives. For example, Zoe Saldana husband, Marco Perego, hyphenated his last name, and multiplatinum rapper Jay-Z did as well. The shocking part is, this is not a new thing, John Lennox, did this with Yoko Ono. My point of saying this is: Could you do it? Could you take the last name of your wife? My Answer It depends on the situation....
