One method that you can adopt is to open the communication channels. They are fun shoes that have become the choice of most young women conforming by alternate style and fashion. I have watched friends just playing hockey at parks.
I put New Orleans behind me in 1976, the year I graduated from Loyola University. Making the transition from Vietnam to San Diego City College, I saw the lure of Loyola’s Communications department. Returning to New Orleans in the early 70’s was an eye-opening negative experience. Though I remember the problems of inner city life as I was raised there, my travel gave me a new perspective and new pronounced expectations. I saw the racism, the hate and violence was not a typical way to live, and I marked the days until I could leave. One week after graduation I was already making Acadia my home.
Think of a rebellious teenager that keeps thinking that he doesn’t owe the world anything. That just wants to be left alone and not be bothered. Perhaps you were once like that, too. But we’ve all been tamed by the Iron Fist of debt. Once you realize how little you can afford on a measly salary, and how much goes away on bills and things you don’t really pay attention to, you realize how feeble your life is. And maybe not all of us feel so down about this, but, let’s face it there have been hundreds of suicides and depression because of financial bondage.
I don’t remember there ever being a problem, and we all mostly accepted each other, and our differences. One black guy and I attempted to make friends because we seemed to share a common interest in photography. He owned a brand new Nikon, a state of the art camera, and he taught me the buttons. This dream camera was bought for him with tax dollars.
It was published and I promptly forgot about it. That’s generally the way I think most writers work. To me, writing is a “set it and forget it:” kind of deal. I spend a lot of time pondering and considering the articles I write and then I edit them myself (which is why you find so many type-os) and then I publish them. At that point, I may have spent many hours with the thing and the last thing I want to do is revisit the article all over again and spend more time with it.
The interesting part – to me, at least – is that when I asked this question of my readers, everyone focused on production from individual countries like Russia or OPEC.
The good news is that you do not need to stay in this type of trouble forever. You could swing the dynamics of this new economy back in your favor. And what I am about to tell you will aid you do just that.
Those who claim music is dead should take a look at Guitar Hero and Rock Band. The classics get resurrected and new artists debut songs not on the radio station, but in the game. For anyone who hasn’t played, these instrument simulations get you as close to these songs as you can without actually learning how to play instruments. In addition, the games force people to actually listen to the songs. No background cocktail music here.
