Let's Do as the Golden Girls Do
For various reasons, myself and a few of my friends never really took off in our 20's like everyone else did. My personal battle with health disorders and a failed real estate business has left me one to two paychecks from being bankrupt. My friends have different but no less troubling reasons why they were unable to really make it in their 20's either. We all still have our hopes and dreams, but looks like it will be a little harder for us to get there. Then one night an off hand joke about some/all of us ending up living together in old age like the "Golden Girls" sparked an idea.
5 Anime that are a must see!
I have had a long lover affair with all things Japanese. My paternal grandmother was Japanese so it came natural to be interested in the life and culture. Part of that culture is Anime. Needless to say like a good little nerd I have been watching Anime for many years now. I'm not a comic con cosplayer level Anime enthusiast, but definitely just a step below. In my many years of viewing I have found five Anime series that I think are worth watching over and over. Down below they will be listed in no particular order. I will try to give you enough to get excited about the series like me without giving it all away. So without further ado here they are!
My first time cooking Chicken Hearts
I love to try new foods. Eating them, cooking them, learning about them, and enjoying them(mostly). Early on in my life outside the parents' home I realized I enjoyed more expensive tastes. Sadly my budget did not match my taste. Instead I used the basic cooking skills my parents had taught me plus the internet and books to learn to cook the foods I enjoyed. Sometimes I have mastered a recipe to restaurant quality perfection, but sadly just as often there are those that I have really messed up. Last night, I messed up a new one: chicken hearts.
Life with my IBS( Irritable Bowel Syndrome)
I will never forget the day it first happened. I was only 15, my grandmother had recently died, and Ivan had torn through my state. We were visiting family friends in Atlanta, Georgia. That day we were getting ready to go to Stone Mountain, but we never made it. Breakfast seemed normal. Fruit, biscuits with syrup, and sausage. I sat at the table eating with all the other kids, but shortly after pain in the my stomach started. I thought it was indigestion so I got a Tums from my mom's friend. Then I went outside for a short walk and some air. I did not even make it out of their yard before my pain got so intense I could not stand it. Immediately I went back towards the house everyone was upstairs getting ready, so I tried to climb the stairs to get help. Last thing I remembered was reaching the top of the stairs, intense gut wrenching agony, so much pain, and then my mom's friend screaming for someone to catch me. I woke up at the bottom of the stairs to the screaming of one of the younger girls saying that I had died. There was no way to know that this one day, this one event, would change the way I lived and approached my life everyday from then on.
5 lessons from serving
I have been a server/waiter on and off for over 10 years. In that time I have worked in anything from burger joints with a 50's theme to high end where you have to be able to pair food to wine and even done a bit of banquet serving. Regardless of where I have lived or been in life lessons I learned serving have helped out in other jobs and areas of life. Whether it is in money or conflict resolution there are lots of lessons in serving to improve your life.
Team Fight Tactics (TFT): Fates is here, and it is awesome.
If you are like me and have been waiting on pins and needles for the new rendition of Team Fight Tactics (TFT) on League of Legends (LoL) then the wait is over! The game brings all the strategy we love about the game and some new twists to keep us excited. As a note this article is not meant to be a definitive guide on how to play.

Teemo: The Swift Scout
Anyone that has ever played League of Legends (LoL) knows that you either love Teemo: The Swift Scout or you hate him. Everyone has an opinion on where and when he should be played or if he should be your number 1 instaban at the start of the draft process. So I figured I would give my two cents about where he is of his highest and best use: The Support.
5 ways I make my grocery budget last and you can too!
We all know the struggle. What to buy at the supermarket and how much can you reasonably afford to spend without giving up living indoors or electricity. I admit in my early days back in college the plan was mostly go home to my parents' place on the weekends and ramen when the food they gave me ran out. Clearly this could not go on forever. As time went by little by little I found/devised clever ways to save money. These are the 5 things I do that can help you too at any income range.
