    January 10, 2020 by

    Being human sucks sometimes, in the sense of it’s confusing and intense. We’re told at a very young age that we must grow up and take on full adult responsibilities.

  • EGO

    December 13, 2019 by

    Everything I’m about to type I am guilty of. This society is very ego-driven, meaning we determine our self worth on what we think about ourselves.
