My Husband Won't Support My Dreams

My husband is in the Army, and is currently living 1,800 miles away from me while he trains for his upcoming deployment. In the meantime, I've been in the process of chasing a dream and starting my own business over the last year. It's been slow, tedious work, but I'm finally getting liftoff and gaining momentum.

Are Online Relationships Real?

I heard a bigoted conversation whilst travelling yesterday. It was two people ridiculing the advent of social media in the life of one of their friends and how ‘stupid’ this absent friend was to regard some of her online cohorts as ‘friends’. This got me thinking because, I must admit, 18 months ago I may have shared a little (just a little) of the same view. Not about technology per se, in which I am well versed, but the whole thing of ‘online friends’....more
