Challenging for Challenging’s Sake

Unless you are a teenager testing boundaries to discover your path, or a person on a journey of self discovery in which all the correct answers were revealed to you by the gods themselves, stop challenging others just for kicks.

Life’s Too Short To Not Like, Love, Haha, Wow, Yay*, Sad or Angry

A lot of registered users scroll through social media without ever giving any indication that they walk the halls of the world wide web.

“WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?”

If you ever want to give an introvert a panic attack, ask them this question. Go ahead, try it! It is by far the most horrible question you can ask the likes of me, even worse than the dreaded “Do you have kids?” question. Why, you ask? Because there is no way for us to […]
