    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...

    Practice Makes Perfect

    It's not true, children. You will never become perfect. I used to think if I set my mind to something I could do it no matter what. It's not true though. Nobody is perfect, and kids need to learn this and stop wasting their time on things they're not meant to or don't want to do...
