My fear of going insane due to getting lost in my imagination… : Why my best friend is probably Buzz Lightyears away of me as far as writing is concerned…

Practice is the only way to get better at something. So I must get lost in my writing… (He’s pretty much been telling me that he’s been wanting to do this himself for the past couple of years. I never really understood it until now…) I’m also beginning to understand how I can become a […]

The big ol’ fear that a lot of people share.

That depressing moment when your biggest life goal is to avoid working at Walmart for 20 years. And you’d consider 10 years to be a “moral victory“. (Yes, I currently work at Walmart.

The sacrament of communion is one of two sacred practices in Protestant Christian churches. Baptism is the other. In regards to communion, believers are exhorted by Christ to drink wine (or, these days, juice) and eat bread in remembrance of His sacrifice on the Cross. In…

Why do people “fear the worst” when it comes to anarchy, but are completely OBVIOUSLY to “the worst” when it comes to GOVERNMENT?

Government logic: Thousands of dollars over the course of the year must be taken from you by government, or else they can use violence against you and hold you captive, in order to prevent other people from stealing even ten dollars away from you or from holding you captive. If someone saying “Give me your money or […]
