    Skydiving Is Insanely Fun

    Every person belongs to a group, be it an age group, a gender group or a base ball team. It gives comfort and a somewhat misleading feeling of safety. In return every group has its membership fee. The fee limits the access. Being convinced that the ultimate...

    Lone Wolf

    As much as I wish that I had friends, I prefer to hang out alone. I get lonely sometimes and wish I had people that I could talk to, but hate the process of getting to know people. Awkwardness is public enemy number 1. The meeting stages always feature awkward pauses, which are...
