Cleaning: My Dirty Secret
Who doesn’t love a stack of freshly laundered clothing or the delicate lines of a vacuum trail? Shiny surfaces germ-free environments and the lovely citrus scent of soaps and detergents; why don’t we clean more often? How could cleaning ever be a bad thing? How could it ever represent a problem or pose a threat to one’s well-being?
Saying Goodbye (For Now) To My Morbid Hobby Turned Obsession
In recent years, I’ve taken up a, more often than not, rather morbid hobby; one that millions of Americans indulge in every day. As a nation and as a global society, our obsession with this particular genre of information has inspired TV shows, movies, books, and entire societies/communities; both digital and not.
The 2022 Met Gala Controversies
There’s glitz. There’s glamour. And there’ s money. Everywhere. On the night of the Met Gala, an annual, themed, fundraising event hosted by the Metropolitan Museum cameras are flashing and A-list celebrities are posing.

The voices around me seemed to agree with my inner dialogue; some voices were filled with frustration (the losing side) while my teammates gloated and recounted the game’s key moments with pride and excitement in their voices.
Science and Diary Writing: Mental and Physical Benefits
I’ve been told that diary writing is only a certain demographic; troubled hipsters or spoiled kids who use their diaries to whine endlessly. They’ll write pages soaked with tears brought on by insignificant problems which are amplified by their weakness and sensitivity. In other words, diary writing is for the weak snowflakes of the world who would rather cry about their problems than solve them. The type of person natural selection would “take care of”.
How To Know If You’re Growing As A Person
Growth. We all want to experience it and feel the glow of changing for the better. We want to shed out of our ways like an old skin to reveal the beautiful butterfly that lies within. But, growth can be hard. With our busy lives that never seem to allow enough time for ourselves, working on ourself can feel like an impossible task. And how can we even know if we’re growing as a person anyway?
