If you're looking for a sign to change, this is it.

If they have a big enough mouth to be up in your face they have a big enough mouth to apologize. Cut them out!

That job you hate

Life is too short to stay in a job you hate, perhaps it's time for a career change. What's worse than wasting 2, 5, or twenty years is wasting twenty years and a day. For those working part time, that minimum wage gig where you are getting paid the same amount as everyone else to bust your ass while they sit on theirs is not worth it.

Stop waiting for opportunities to reach you, go get them! Use your connections, update your LinkedIn, post that video, join that club- whatever it is that excites you, don't let another year go by that you aren't shooting for the moon.

You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.
