Why “Husband” and “Wife” Are Bad

In same-sex couples who have legally married or have otherwise committed themselves to each other it seems common for them to refer to each other as “husband” or “wife”, but I have a problem with that terminology. The terms “husband” and “wife” are not just gendered terms, they have socially been given different meanings. There […]

RT: Fall Reversal Freaks Me Out

There is something disturbing about looking at a clock and not realizing if you are going through the first 1am hour, or the 2nd 1am hour. The fall reversal of DST freaks me out (more than the sudden loss of an hour at DST execution).

RT: Social Networking Hinders Social Development

Facebook, Twitter and RSS are not replacements for having actual conversations or for spending time with people. Attempting to communicate to many people at once looses the individuality and places a strain on attempts at conversation. Do not expect people to have read your blog or checked your latest Tweets. Talk to people, treat them […]

RT: Status Thoughts

It really sucks that I can’t update my status simply by thinking it. Having to wait until I get to wifi or having to pull my phone out sucks and results in too many statuses at once.

RT: I need Friends

It has just occurred to me while looking at Facebook that I need to venture out and find more people to have in my life. Everyone on Facebook is someone from high school. I have always been sort of reserved and as a result have not made any new friends lately. I guess unless I’m […]

Deciphering the Moods and Desires of People

Life is quite strange when dealing with these mortals called humans. Do exactly what you believe that these humans desire and then they change what they desire, making your actions and assumptions wrong. If you sit back and make no active change to appease them, they expect for you to have known their desires. Where […]

RT: Relationships (2)

A relationship truly breaks when its components don’t love each other anymore. Trust is something created and removed by the heart, which in itself is a very emotional and dramatic “organ”. So, trust isn’t to be trusted perhaps. “No longer caring” should not be something jumped to so easily, especially when no one has said […]

RT: Relationships

When does a relationship truly break? Is it the moment that there is no trust between the individuals, or is it the moment that one member ceases to care that the other is in pain? If a relationship makes it to either of those situations, can it ever recover?
