Moody people piss me off. And the fact that I am one of those people calms me down. Moodiness is like the sweet pudgy uncle from childhood. Uncle brings you all the affection. He brings you food to play with and toys to eat. You grow up a little and he becomes your child-service helpline … Continue reading On and of(f) moodiness.
For over a century now, humanity has had this demonstrably delusional desire to understand one other. Psychology made its best attempt but found itself driven into madness trying. Which is hilarious and somewhat deserving when you think about all the shit psychology has put us through. Lately, this need to understand is becoming life-sustaining.

Those three insightful facts … Continue reading A group of tortoises is called a creep

I sucked at the game and my team kept passing the ball to my face. I, therefore, … Continue reading Loving what you find
Being yourself is a lazy abstraction that can make you feel good for no reason at all. The premise of my earlier essay on being yourself was we all want to be like someone else - and being yourself is an innately stupid idea invented by snobs. It's been a year since I wrote that … Continue reading In Pursuit of Okay
Every generation has had its share of crumby personal development zeitgeists. The early 20th-century self-help was focused on prosperity. After half the world fell apart and everyone lost a massive amount of money, the 1950's focused on hope and humanity. As peace beckoned, the 1980's became about people yelling at you for 18 straight hours as a … Continue reading How to stop caring about how to stop caring about what people think
