Read, Write, Love At Seaside, Addison Cole
Read, Write, Love at Seaside - Addison Cole

I really enjoyed this somewhat sweet romance. I voluntarily chose to review it. I've given it a 4.7* rating. There is a lot of sexual reference in this and I know I wouldn't want my young granddaughter to read this. Parts of it were funny and some serious. A real nice ending.

My New Year Goals!
These are goals to start the year off with, not New Year Resolutions because if I don’t do them… IT. IS. FINE!! No beating myself up. Mostly reading related, of course, but also some health stuff.
 
It isn't all fun and games; I have chronic pain, with mobility issues (can't walk or stand very long), depression, social & general anxiety. Because of these, it is so easy for goals to go out the window.
 
I don't have a "workout" plan, or a "diet" or any goals like that. It is all about getting my mental health in a better place and doing small baby steps to gain some mobility back. I just want to be able to move and not be in such pain. If you don't have depression or chronic pain, you might never understand how hard it is to crawl out from the darkness or to push beyond the pain to do a thing that gives you more pain in the moment. It is a vicious cycle and not an excuse or laziness!
 
The things below are goals, things I wish to keep up with, but I am going in realistically, knowing I'm going to fall and stand back up many times. Depression even makes things like reading and writing hard to do sometimes and not feel fun. No beating myself up when I fall down!

Say "I'm worth living, I matter, I'm meant to be here!" whenever death is on your mind
Every time you think something negative about yourself, imagine you going back in time and saying it to yourself as a child; you wouldn't, so why say it now?

Education and work, a story already written

The story of a person who wants to enter the world of work starts from afar and is often a story already written with pay someone to write my essay: family, gender and nationality are the first 3 factors that determine the success or failure of their professional history . If you are a male, come from a family of graduates and have citizenship in the country you live in, you will be more likely to continue your studies and find a suitable job.

 

 

OECD The latest report by the OECD , the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development , describes Italy as a country in sad decline :  those who come from an uneducated family do not arrive at the University,  young graduates are few and disadvantaged and women make less men's careers. The so-called social elevator does not work anymore because the educational and professional destiny of our children is already written according to the family of origin: today 90% of the graduates have at least one graduate parent while there are very few boys who can graduate from a less educated family. The reasons start from afar, even from the nursery school . We are a country where the lines of asylum, both municipal and private, are very high and only wealthy families can afford them. And the nest is already the first piece of the cultural baggage that a boy carries around. In general Italy is a country with a good level of education: it  is expected that 53% of the population will obtain a secondary diploma higher than professional guidance in the course of their existence  but the percentage of graduates is not satisfactory compared to the European average . These low levels of graduates may be partly due to insufficient job prospects and low financial returns following the attainment of the doctor's degree, although employment and retribution are always more favorable for those with a higher qualification than a lower one .

 

 

ocse2Also the skills that boys and girls choose to study are crucial for professional life . In Italy, scientific and technological studies have seen an increase in recent years and this is a good sign because the labor market requires precisely these so-called STEM disciplines. Like all OECD countries, men represent the vast majority of first and second level graduates in technology (79% first and 86% second) and in engineering, industrial production and construction (69% and 73%). Women are over-represented in education, fine arts and humanities, social sciences, journalism and information; as well as in the health and social services sector, both in the first and second degree levels, and also in the natural sciences, mathematics and statistics at the master's level, representing more than 60% of the graduates in these fields. This preponderance in girls in the humanities has led to a gap with respect to young people, both in terms of employment and retribution for the benefit of young people. The gap is not only seen at the beginning of the career but also in the long term because even the top positions of companies are mostly held by men than by women. Women are a wasted talent as women are the majority of graduates and are even better and quicker to graduate than boys. The system does not even help foreigners because they have a lower level of education and fewer expectations at work. 

To start again, it is essential to review the educational system in close contact with the work but also to ensure that there is fairness for access to education and inclusion in the labor market especially for the actors who today seem more fragile: young people, women and foreigners .

How to come up with fresh story ideas?

All of us know that feeling when you are staring at the blank paper and have no idead what to write about. I want to share a hint with you. When I was doing paperwritings reviews I noticed one interesting thing - all of them are similar. Then I come up with a thought that it happens because of brain restrictions, so called "box". Great authors, artists and musicians are thinking outside

 

 

of the box. This is what actually let them to create a fresh, interesting unusual art. When you are trying to create a story, gather all cliches that you know and put them into the "box". When all of them are inside, try to find things that are floating around.
