Pointless Overthinking

Hi all,

I hope everyone is doing well! Today, I want to talk about one way I use without knowing that makes me value and hang onto my habits more: leaving my habits for a while. I have been getting back to some of my old habits recently and I like this. I also have been thinking why some habits are harder to form in adulthood. I want to combine these in this post.

We all have habits. Some from our childhood, some we form in adulthood. The ones we form in childhood become a part of personality. The ones in adulthood depends, at least in my case. Let’s say that I was an avid reader as a child. Chances are that I still am one. I also probably read just as much now as then. If I have not established myself as a good reader as a kid and…

Love and Apostasy in the Modern Era

Most - and I mean an overwhelming majority - of my loved ones are religious. I have nothing against people who hold fast to their religious beliefs, whatever they are. I don't have time to judge or hate theists, even if they share suboptimal memes about hellfire and brimstone in the comment section and repeat... Continue Reading →

I am not including the 2nd person, because unless it's a Choose-Your-Own-Adventure book, I... Continue Reading →

On Not Being Delicate or Pretty

"If Rebecca is having another girl," he said, "she and her husband are going to try again until they have a son. Her husband really wants a boy." I don't remember where we were at the time, but I couldn't stop myself from going on a tirade. Rebecca and her husband had three daughters. It... Continue Reading →

[Throwback] Bad Ideas

  We didn't start out as friends. In fact, we barely said two civil words to each other for months after we first met. I'm not sure when or why that changed, but change it did; a complete 180. We were an unlikely pair; I was young and angry and outspoken. I was dealing with... Continue Reading →
