I was in a class once during my senior year in college, and the professor asked the class, "How long do you think people stay in love for?" We went around the classroom with an estimate and it was very disconcerting to me that nearly everyone put it in the...

Labels are all around. The second you meet someone new you begin labeling them in your mind, even if you're not meaning to. We are asked to label ourselves at job interviews with the famous question "List three words that describe you;" we're labeled by the sports we play; the...

People Are the Only Thing That Matter

Stuck in the 20-Something

(0) Comments | Posted March 20, 2013 | 7:53 PM
