I teach a class called “CMMA 485 Portfolio” and, in it, I try to prepare graduating seniors to go out and find a job in the cold, cruel world. We talk about the kinds of careers they want to have, balancing work/life issues, interviewing, resumes, cover letters and the students also create a portfolio website to showcase their work to potential employers. Because of the class, I am paying more attention to the economics of the labor market in the US and the only thing I can say, for certain, is that it’s weird out there.

As my philosophy, I’d rather be kind than right, continues to be true. Like anything else, a philosophy should be tested and honed. However, one’s moral compass can be tempered by practicing kindness and empathy in all cases.

Why do we believe what we do?  Because we are forced?  Because we are deeply convinced?  Because it is just what we have always done? 

What happens when history doesn’t fit our expectations; when we find out that what we thought was true maybe isn’t exactly what we thought?

Just about a year ago, rather than vent about the January 6, 2021 riot at the Capitol, I chose to write about the virtual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas and all the new electronic crap that would change our lives.

Experts recommend keeping your daily rituals, even if you are working from home.How do we rationalize the “Work From Home” phenomenon? The easy answer is that covid showed us that just about any job could be done from the safety, comfort and sweat pants of home. Except, of course, the essential businesses like grocery stores, landscapers, liquor stores and gun ranges.
