Whether it’s intentional or subconscious, humans are at the mercy of defining everything and everyone. More often than not, or dare I say all of the time, we designate so many details of a person to certain characteristics that when combined, encase them in this inescapable material that we then slap a label on top of. The worst part is, they really don’t have much … Continue reading Picking Your Puzzle Pieces
No one likes heavy luggage. It’s a pain to drag around, it gets in the way of everything, it slows you down, and by the end of the day, you’re exhausted from carrying it around. Sometimes, a person will come around to help you. Whether it be your friends, family, partner, or a stranger, someone may see you struggling and offer to lighten the load. … Continue reading Excuse me, your luggage exceeds the weight limit.
I cannot count on two hands, or even ten, the amount of times I’ve heard a complaint along the lines of ” Today this*insert minor inconvenience or first world problem* happened and now I wanna DIE!” You know, the kind where people take a small problem like spilling a $6 coffee on their shirt and act like their life could not be worse.

It’s funny to me because honestly, everyone can suck. We spend so much time shitting on the other … Continue reading Women aren’t psycho, Men aren’t pigs, We all just suck.
