We all have that friend—the one who has never been in a long term relationship, yet possesses a mouth big enough to contain all the relationship advice one could ever want (but does not)—and we do our best to take them seriously. However, logic would dictate that experience is usually a prerequisite to giving ...

A question I have had on my mind lately is “why do we put so much value in material items or just stuff?” We work our hind ends off in life to buy stuff, whether it be luxury stuff or cheap stuff. I think it is a weird concept and habit we have by revolving our entire life around buying things and...

Youth is a wonderful and exciting time for many of us. The opportunities, knowledge and time seem never ending. We can eat what we want, drink what we want, act and talk how we want (bearing the consequences of course), but most importantly we can learn whatever we want when we want to. We have the...
