Blog’s Purpose

I write about life’s subject matters.


My experiences are my religious principles.   I treat people as they would like to be treated.


I have M. Ed. and an education in postsecondary reading.  Presently, I work at Northern Illinois University in the Community Affairs Department.


I am bi-lingual as my mother and grandmother spoke fluent profanity.  I will use it on occasion in their honor when applicable to illustrate a point.  If you’re offended, I am unapologetic.  Nevertheless, chalk it up as a lesson in diversity, linguistics, and ethnic culture.
