Oh opinions, everyone has them. Just like anuses and poor life decisions. Aren’t they great?

Well fear not, person who feels oh so important! I have a guide for you about that very […]


We don’t like seeing those we love hurt. It’s a completely natural response. We’re tied to these people, be they family, friends, partners, whatever. Our happiness and theirs are linked. Closely and tightly. When they hurt, we hurt for them. When they smile, we feel happy too. When they cry, we want to cry. When […]
