The Sum Of All Our Parts

Guys are better than girls, guys can do more, guys are smarter, guys are faster, guys are the ones to get the job done… BULLSHIT! Sorry for the vulgar vernacular, but really – guys aren’t better, just because we have man parts and can pee standing up, does not mean we are supreme. Please letContinue reading “The Sum Of All Our Parts”

I hate it too, this whole “perception is reality.” Why can’t my reality be everyone else’s reality. If everyone had the same perception, then we would live in a very boring world. However, perception can be skewed: Something that is completely innocuous in action, can seem quite the opposite to someone else. Is there aContinue reading “Perception”

Their culture hung on an ideaContinue reading “Stay Curious”
