Treadmill Euphemism

Treadmill Euphemism This is a treadmill We are all on it. Some of us move too fast And jump off the front. Some of us move too slow And fall off the back. But we are all on the treadmill (Whether we like it or not – Don’t believe me? Try to stop moving. Try

Ups and Downs: Hierarchy and Heterarchy

As a continuation of my Ups and Downs series of posts I’ll be diving into the pyramid known as “Maslow’s hierarchy of needs.” In this hierarchy we see that our physiological requirements, like food, water, and shelter are at the bottom of the pyramid. As we rise up the hierarchy we begin to move away from
