The Mind Trap of Advertising Commercial Holidays: Valentine’s Day Edition

Hello, dear readers! It's Valentine's Day! Or, for most of my life, I stubbornly referred to it as Single Awareness Day (and honestly, it still is), because I wasn't lucky enough to be in a relationship and have something to celebrate.

Amping Up The Blog

Hello, dear readers! Happy New Year! I don't think I'm alone in the excitement of surviving 2018 and 2019 arriving.
