Shoshana finds a new hot blonde to enjoy.

Oz the Great Narcissist & Why You Should Not Date One

I went to see the new Disney movie, Oz the Great and Powerful, as soon as it came out. I wanted to see it for all the reasons that the millions of people – who paid over $80 million the opening weekend – wanted to see it.  But I wanted to see it for personal reasons as well.

Less Talk, More Action

Less Talk, More Action

Those of you who have read my articles know that I am always talking about the importance of good communication, urging better communication, and giving skills for being better understood.
