"The problem is that knowledge of our own neuroses is not at all easy to come by. It can take years and situations we have had no experience of. Prior to marriage, we’re rarely involved in dynamics that properly hold up a mirror to our disturbances. Whenever more casual relationships threaten to reveal the ‘difficult’ side of our natures, we tend to blame the partner – and call it a day. As for our friends, they predictably don’t care enough about us to have any motive to probe our real selves. They only want a nice evening out. Therefore, we end up blind to the awkward sides of our natures."

"Just how much the recession hurt depends on what graduates majored in. The economic picture looks rosy for 2008 graduates with a degree in a health care field: they had an unemployment rate of 2.2 percent in 2012. In other STEM fields, the unemployment rate was 5 percent."

The Senate Intelligence Committee passed the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act in a 12-3 vote late Tuesday evening. Written by Sens. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif) and Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga), civil liberties and privacy advocates fear the bill may potentially expand the controversial National Security Agency's power to collect information on Americans. The legislation is modeled on 2013's CISPA bill, which was defeated in Congress after a public outcry. RT's Ameera David has more on the unexpected passage.

An honest account of what happens when financial calamity strikes

"The reality of poverty can spring quickly while the psychological effects take longer to surface. When you lose a job, your first thought isn’t, “Oh my God, I’m poor. I’d better sell all my nice stuff!” It’s “I need another job. Now.” When you’re scrambling, you hang on to the things that work, that bring you some comfort. That Mercedes was the one reliable, trustworthy thing in our lives."

As someone who lived a decent portion of his life so far in a family that had governmental help from North and South Carolina, I can tell you flat out that it is anything but a dream.

An interesting theory

"Psychologists have a scale for this, called the Integration Into Self Scale. Whether or not you’re madly in love with the person you’re consciously uncoupling with, you lose part of yourself when you split. You brought them into your sense of who you are — they’re your partner after all — and now that half is gone."

#Throwbackthursday poll.

For those of us who watched the Voltron cartoons back in the 80's, which one did you prefer? Lion force Voltron or Vehicle Voltron? Hit me in the comments section! I was Vehicle all the way!

As if we didn't know this already...

"In the same survey, Bank of America found that 51% of users checked their smartphones at least once an hour, with 35% saying that they check their phones “constantly,” which just goes to show how incredibly addictive our mobile devices have become."

"Poor spelling, incorrect grammar, lousy writing and poor oral presentation are all signs of illiteracy. I don’t care what field you work in, how much you earn, or whether you’re a production worker or a vice president. The way you use language reveals who you are, how you think, and how you work. And that will affect your career profoundly. You can pretend otherwise, but you can also walk around buck-naked believing you’re invisible because you’ve got your eyes closed."
