A job. a question.

Well, I have finally found gainful employ after an arduous eon being a student. Graduation brought with it many opportunities, one of which I was happy to accept. It is for Porsche Financial Services, and I am excited at the opportunity. Life has started moving at a faster pace in recent months and this new job has certainly increased that rate as well. I expect that this rate will continue to increase until I consider retirement. This fact encourages me to think about life with a much longer lens then I had previously, which calls into question where my drive and purpose are taking me. So… What is my drive and what is my purpose? What is my passion?

I hope that my search for passion will be worthwhile and extraordinary, but one thing I know for certain is, I am moving forward.

Onward and upward my friends,

Insanity!!

In a world filled with Occupiers, Tea Party-ers, Republicans, Democrats, and Independents- where should one put their trust in policy? In a world rocked by volatility in the housing industry, the Eurozone, the Petroleum markets, where should one invest? With so many options and choices in life how can we ever be unified as a country, as a society, as a world? The media is polarizing- it is their job to make things interesting, and without conflict there isn’t a good story. So conflict is pushed, party lines are divided, and we see ourselves in a giant mud pit and we are mad about it, because it is obviously the other guys fault! No matter that they are thinking the same thing, and sadly both sides are right!! We did all put each other in the mud pit that we are in, but instead of blaming each other we should work together to find solutions that are more satisfactory for both sides. In this way it becomes less of a political war and more of a discussion that brings change and hope.

Work towards community wherever you are in life. Even if we believe different things and the things that I believe bug the heck out of you, I still want to get to know you, and I want to understand why your ideas differ from my own. I understand that I sound idealistic and naive, and there is some validity to that, but I think that the world needs people to speak up and come to solutions that benefit us all!!!!

#onlinefilters transparency is needed. Do the algorithms which dominate our internet usage really reflect what we truly need?  Civic responsibility should be incorporated into filters, and a little bit of individual control should be put into our hands so that we at least know what we are missing.  I appreciate filters taking out all the junk, but I would like to at least know what the nuggets of awesomeness that get stuck in the filter are as well.

Please Watch! Richard Wilkinson talks on the causal links of income inequality in societies and : Life Expectancy, Math & Literacy, Infant Mortality, Homicide, Imprisonment, Teenage Births, Trust, Obesity, Mental Illness, and Social Mobility. I think that these statistics are completely staggering and really made me question some assumptions that I held. It seems that “If Americans want to live the American Dream, they should go to Denmark”
