For far too long I was guilty of being around people physically, but due to the convenience of mobile phones, not being entirely there mentally. Having a text convo whilst with a friend seems harmless enough, but I think it says a lot about how you value your time and friendships and so it's something … Continue reading Being *with* who you’re with
Oh, what a scary time to be a male.. right? Wrong.

Somewhere along the way, we privileged, first-world people, decided we wanted more. The American dream, which promises anyone can achieve anything, married capitalism, spread around the globe, and birthed a generation of people who would willingly work themselves to death.
