Keeping New Year’s Resolutions

Happy 2020 everyone! A new year, a new decade, & a new time to be alive! :D Perhaps many of you have set a new year’s resolution such as exercising, organization, learning a new skill, saving money, etc., & while at first we may be on top of this on the onset of the new year, perhaps as time goes on, perhaps you may find yourself not sticking to said resolutions. I’ll say this; don’t beat yourself up if this happens (or happened)! Once one identifies & is aware of a personal area to improve, such as keeping resolutions, then […]

Why do we procrastinate Christmas shopping?

Perhaps I am stating this to validate my approach to a number of areas of my own life, but I would like to imagine that I am not the only one that waits until the last minute to buy gifts. While I let the clock tick ever closer to the 25th, knowing that I will most certainly blitz gift buying on the 24th, instead of resolving this looming responsibility last weekend for example, I decided to contemplate why I am procrastinating Christmas shopping. A form of delay for sure, but at least we can all revel in this shared moment […]

5 Ways To Have Your Turkey Not Be Dry & Bland On Turkey Day

Very soon many people will be throwing a turkey in the oven & serving it to their guests, but let me be the first to say it for everyone; the turkey is often way too bland & dry! Yes, the main course of Thanksgiving dinner is often the least flavorful & don’t tell me to “just put the gravy & sauces on it afterwards” because in that case, I’d rather put all the fixings on something else with more flavor! This problem is further compounded due to the emphasis on being “thankful” on Thanksgiving Day, which in this case makes […]

Pumpkin Spice Latte – Is It Basic?

Yes.

This associate of Scranberry Coop almost considered ending this bit here, but instead let’s dive a bit further into why pumpkin spice latte is so basic. According to Business Insider, “To be basic in the era of Pumpkin Spice Latte means to be lacking in creativity or aggressively mainstream and feminine… a term ‘some women were using it to describe other women who they didn’t think had interesting taste.'” & while pumpkin spice latte may have been innovative back in 2003 when it was first unleashed upon the world, it is now 16 years old. Yes, […]

The Magic of Halloween, Autumn, & Change

Some of us have been yearning for the change of seasons while others may have been dreading it, but now it is undeniable: Autumn is here & Halloween is just around the corner! If you couldn’t tell, this associate of Scranberry Coop is a major fan of the onset of Autumn, so while I am sure that some readers may take issue with this, I would like to communicate how much I adore this time of the year; no negative nancy this time around! While change may be a tricky prospect for some, I know that I along with many […]

Fireworks in New Jersey – Legality & Safety Tips

My friend this weekend told me how he randomly came across a firework stand & stocked up on his arsenal for Independence Day, & you may have noticed that things in this state are very different than before. I remember just two years ago how I was very much concerned about the hypothetical possession & use of fireworks in New Jersey, which I totally did not have at the time by the way, but now we don’t have to worry anymore… right? Well actually, you might want to keep certain things in mind. New Jersey is only “kind of cool” […]

5 things to love & dislike about summer

As we rapidly approach summer, we should first be happy that we got away from the winter months. Perhaps things got a little bit too cold this last winter, & after the teetering back & forth between cold snaps & warm springs, we seem to have finally broken through. But the honeymoon period is typically short-lived, and for some of us, summer can be a bittersweet experience. Perhaps I resonate with migrating mentalities, where we go south in the winter & really far north in the summer, but alas in today’s day & age, we endure the best & the worst […]
