Summer is officially here! It's a perfect time to relax, and maybe have some nice cold drinks! In case you missed my blog on drinking moderately, click here.

If you're having trouble deciding what to do this summer, maybe my new blog on Decision Making can help! You may also notice an unusual blog topic below on the issue of False Allegations of Sexual Misconduct. Unfortunately, the issue of false allegations seems to be an emergent issue-- I'm not sure if you've ever been accused of something you didn't do, but I'm sure you can imagine it is rough-- so please, if you know anyone who is suffering from that please share the blog with them!

There are TONS of other articles below where I'm quoted on all sorts of relationship topics. Relationships are key to success in life-- both personal AND professional relationships help us achieve our goals, get support when we need it, and enjoy life. Sophisticated linguistic speech (where we use our tongue to make words that significy concepts and ideas rather than just vocalizing tones or sounds to signal events or locations) is one of the unique features that sets us apart as humans. Our ability to converse and "talk things over" helps us to develop our thoughts, solve problems, and learn from others... all of this is possible when we have good relationships. So feel free to browse the articles below on personal and professional relationships to see if they are useful to your particular situation!
