At the age of 30, I was diagnosed with Multiple Personality Disorder. The diagnosis was actually a blessing, as well as a curse. The blessing? It clarified, identified, and explained bewildering behaviors, irrational fears, and confounding symptoms that I'd experienced my entire life. It set things in order. Now things made sense. I made sense, and I begin to see myself as I never had before.

Why shouldn’t there be a female president? I didn’t personally understand the controversy. After all, my generation of women didn’t see artists, authors, or scientists need to sign their work under a male name. My generation of women didn’t enter the workforce with only two options: secretary or teacher. We are, quite possibly, the first generation of women to see and believe that our options are limitless.

Have you ever wondered exactly how an oversized, egg-laying bunny made his way into a Christian holiday celebrating the resurrection of Christ? It doesn’t seem quite right, does it? To get a look at the origin and evolution of Mister E. Bunny, we need to go way back to the Pagans and the Christians.

"April Fool's!" You'll hear Americans yell after their co-worker discovers his stapler in Jell-O. In Brazil April 1st is called Dia da Mentira or "Day of the lie,” while in France children tape a picture of a fish on their friends' backs and yell "Poisson d'Avril!" or "April fish!" The fish symbolizes a naive and easily caught (gullible) person. It's all in good fun and part of a time honored tradition dating back to ancient times.
