You Will Die

Yes, it’s scary but it’s the truth. You will die. That man you hate for breaking your heart, yes, he will die too. That boss who puts a lot of pressure in your job, she will die as well.

Beware of Fake People

I know a few people who give advice on how to be successful and rich, and yet in real life they’re the ones who really feel failure deep inside. And what about people who share tips on how to be happy (they post it on Facebook), and yet in real life they’re lonely as hell? … Continue Reading →

The computer technician hobbled on crutches. No way… can he really repair the computer? Forgive me. I was in college that time (20 years old?), and was a judgmental asshole.

Because It’s Not the End of the World

The tea spilled in the plastic bag as I rode back home. I wonder why it’s brown, “Oh it was mocha, not matcha tea!” It was supposedly tea. I told them matcha (not mocha, whatever). The cashier even confirmed it was matcha tea before I made the order. How come they made that mistake? Crap. I … Continue Reading →
