Handling Emotions Effectively – Part 2
A Series on Emotional Intelligence and Administration Support systems and Asking for Help In the last blog on handling emotions effectively part 1, I concluded by asking you to look towards your support system as a way to deal with situations where actionable steps are a luxury you don’t have.

Handling Emotions Effectively – Part 1
A Series on Emotional Intelligence and Administration Recognizing Emotions and Dealing with Them Right now, all I am feeling is chaos. I don’t think chaos is essentially an emotion and yet, that is what I feel. If you’re feeling that too – know that that is not irrational. Just because you can’t pinpoint your exact emotion does not invalidate it. That is what makes it especially difficult. To believe that emotions can be exactly pinpointed …
The Ugly Reworked Title IX
To say that I am disturbed to the new reforms Betsy DeVos has brought to the title 9 would be an understatement. Title IX is a Department of Education federal law that stops institutions from discriminating against students on the basis of their sex.

Like with most articles, I cannot speak for …

For any adventurer, be it through hiking, books or fashion choices, the theme that intersects with personalities such as these is the claim of finding comfort in a certain environment. For people who find solace in the warmth of their homes and don’t look …
The 2 New Generations of Experiences
People are now chasing experiences. Maslow's Hierarchy defines physiological needs as the top priority when it comes to the different needs a human has or develops. Physiological needs in layman's terms are food, water, shelter, and clothing. Knowing what we know now, this isn't any groundbreaking research. The stage right after that is the safety and security needs. This is more a stage of physical wellbeing along with a sense of security in the economic …
