    Nobody's An Island

    I've heard that saying time and time again. It's supposed to be a metaphor for someone to ask for help. I took it a different way. I'm not sure where I learned what it meant to be a hypocrite, but I knew I didn't want to be one. I also wanted to know what the **** I was talking...

    A Strange Mixture

    Humans are a strange mixture. We have such incredibly advanced brains with processing and reasoning capacities far beyond the most advanced super-computer, and yet we have such base instincts. We're ruled by such primitive emotions as fear, anger, greed, lust. It's almost as if a...
