Stop Saying That Bullying is Normal in School
I am constantly amazed these days when I hear people complaining about Pink Shirt Day. They say things like, “Kids need to learn to stick up for themselves and stop being such little pussies.”
I’m (Never) Going To Turn This Car Around
“If you kids don’t settle down, I’m going to turn this car around.” This was a sentiment we never heard from my dad as children. Dad believed that as soon as our family entered the car, it was now his sole mission to get to our destination in as little time as possible.
How To Love Your Introvert
Although I take great joy in loudly writing strange and amazing tales of love, marriage and the misadventures of everyday life, I would brand myself as an introvert. I’ve mentioned before that I’m better on the page, and if you ever meet me in real life, this fact will become evidently clear.

Audiobooks Saved Me When I Couldn’t Save Myself
I’ve always loved reading. Getting lost in a book is one of the greatest things about being human. Our imaginations are these infinite machines that allow us to read a sentence and create universes in our mind’s eye.
Eight Reasons I Might Be In Love with my Netflix Account
If there has been one unsung hero through this entire shit show of a health crisis, it’s been my old pal Netflix. Netflix has really stepped it up by changing absolutely nothing at all in its programming, reminding me of better days.
