This Actually Happened – September 10th, 2011

My 9/11   Due to the fact that tomorrow is September eleventh, I’ll use today’s post to write about my experience during the attacks of 2001. After all, this actually happened. 2001 was a difficult year; my family was dealing with the tragic loss of my uncle, so I decided to take the semester off …

Free Money

**Before I begin this post, I would like to announce that the domain name for the site has changed. The new URL is: peteteix.com (Short and Simple!)**      Before I proceed, let me say that I believe there is a necessity for some form of welfare! The government should be expected to take care of …

Bush v Obama

Friends, Bostonians, Countrymen, lend me your ears; I have come here to bury Barack, not to praise him! (A little plagiarizing never hurt anyone!) Before I compare the two Presidents, I first want to say, I love how people call Barack Obama “Barry.” Is this some effort to make him seem more American and less …

What’s Love Got To Do With It

People often use the term “Unconditional Love” when speaking about the love they have for someone who they consider to be exceptional. The word unconditional is added in order to show that the love is extra special. To me, saying Unconditional love is being redundant. The way I see it, all love is unconditional. The …

The Worst Quote Ever

The easiest thing anyone can do is read this entry and dismiss what I have to say as nonsense, but what I am writing is simply the truth. I’ve heard people say, “The truth hurts!” This entry may sting a little! There is one quote that people have held near and dear to their hearts …

What’s All The Complaining About

People like to complain. Sometimes they are justified, but usually people complain so much that the whining falls on deaf ears. These days, everyone seems to have a gripe. Has working hard become a lost art?      Is this truly a man’s world? I don’t think so. Women have more rights than they seem to …

This Actually Happened – September 3rd, 2011

Thugged OUT! In keeping with this week’s examples, dealing with the negatives of assumption, I’ll write about a New York Moment. The incident happened while I was living in New Jersey and attending Seton Hall University. My cousin was visiting our aunt, who lived in Scarsdale, NY. (***This has absolutely nothing to do with the …

Twitter v Facebook

The two dollar and fifty cent question is, “Which is better?” (For those of you who ball harder than $2.50…Congrats!) Obviously, the answer to the BIG question is completely subjective. Deciding which is better is also based on who your friends are! (There is no way of knowing which social media site is better without …

German Engineering

People are on an unending quest to find the best solutions to life’s challenging problems. (If only it was as easy as copying the answers from the test paper of the student sitting beside you!) The companionship of a trusted sage, one with several resolutions, is optimal for living a fruitful life. Lucky are those …
