Helena Gudell’s WONDERLAND: Stupid is as Stupid Does

I was always told “an idle mind is the Devil’s playground” when I was growing up. That being said I was always given a book or a sketch pad or something to keep me busy. If I wasn’t outside playing I was doing something constructive. I was creating something or reading a book. Now it seems kids lack an imagination. I know that people will blame it on technology and say that we’re too busy with social networking and video games to be creative but in fact that isn’t the point. When we were growing up we had chat rooms. we had computers, we had an ever evolving game console. The difference was we had parents who set limits. Now kids are given everything in the world they want and they have no creativity. So they do stupid shit to try and make it big on social media or YouTube.  Continue reading

Spice of Life w/Suga Q&A Session 13

Dear Suga,

I am a single woman living on my own. My best friend is being evicted from her apartment and needs somewhere to stay. She wants to come with her 2 small children. I have no children but of course I wouldn’t invite her and not the children. The only problem is she wants her man to come as well. I’m not okay with that in the least. The main reason is because she works and he doesn’t.  Am I wrong?

Sincerely,

Trying to Be a Good Friend

Jodi Arias and Travis Alexander when they first met

Have you ever met someone that you clicked with and thought it was meant to be? That’s what happened in the case of Jodi Arias and Travis Alexander. In 2006 Travis thought he met the most beautiful woman in the world. She was tall, blonde, slender, and a smile he saw from across the room. He didn’t know who she was but he knew he had to meet her. Unfortunately it was this meeting that would eventually end his life. Continue reading
