The Irony of It All

August 28, 2010 / Psychology / 4 Comments

Ever since the meaning behind the first Matrix was explained to me in my 10th grade psychology class, I became enthralled with the philosophy of life. It made me think hard about my existence as a confused adolescent. What do we exist for? Love? Justice? Fame? Power? Passion? I was so intent with seeking the…

I watched Toy Story 3 the other day; the movie made me reminisce about my old toys. I had a unhealthy amount of Barbies complete with everything — the dream house, the car, a collection of clothes and even Ken. I also had an insane amount of soft toys, most of which were given to…

Career blogs and business publications, like this article from the Wall Street Journal, all have a knack for painting a harsh picture of Generation Ys (people under 30). Here are some things they’ve been saying about us. We… want work life balance and a good pay can’t handle criticism – even constructive ones are flaky…
