Finding People Worthwhile

When I was younger, I used to watch this show called Scrubs. If you’ve never seen it, do yourself a favor and search for some episodes online after you’re done reading this. You’ll thank me later! Basically, it was a sitcom about a group of doctors (hence the name). It lasted for nine seasons, and when it ended I was …

The Power of Friendship

I’m very self aware, and that’s why I know that I don’t have the best personality around. I have a short temper, I’m extremely sarcastic, and I can be stand offish at times.

Now I’m not talking about something small like someone telling you to try a new kind of food even though it didn’t look appetizing …
