    I Hate The Phrase "Everything Happens For A Reason."

    "Oh everything happens for reason." Is it just me, or does anyone else hate the phrase "everything happens for a reason?" To me, this phrase would mean that NONE of us are in control of our future or destiny. And wouldn't that suck? See, if everything happens for a reason...

    Kafka-esque

    Thank God most schools in the US stopped teaching anything worth reading, because in the 90s I was getting a bit annoyed at the over use of the term Kafka-esque. Thankfully the metamorphosis of modern education into a big joke has caused a reduction in the use of this banal trope...

    Two

    The following are the phrases I simply hate. Of course, these are also the phrases my mom uses the most. Is there some sort of corollary? 1. "It will make you a well-rounded [insert round gesture] person." I put well-rounded in bold because that's what she...
