The Meaning of Love Yourself by Justin Bieber

I really enjoy some of Justin Bieber’s new music. His lyrics seem to be gaining more depth and meaning as he advances further into adulthood. Even though some of the lyrics in this song are kind of immature and “high schoolish” we can still find meaning and relate to the scenarios described in the lyrics…

The significant significance of a significant other – Cognitive Empathy

When your significant other is against you and not for you when it really matters the most. When their sarcastic humor is no longer funny and inappropriate. When the jokes go just a little bit too far and hurt just a little bit too much on the inside. We’ve all had moments in our lives…

Solve America’s Problems, Tax the Robots!

As industries start to become more automated and replace real workers with equipment or automation, the number of jobs available in the marketplace will continue to decrease. The common mantra in response to this is that low skilled jobs aren’t that important and workers of these jobs should go find a lucrative high paying-high skilled job…

The Meaning of Hello by Adele

We’ve all done things that we regret, things we can’t undo, things that maybe we wish could take back. We all get to a point in our lives where we start to wonder about and reflect upon the decisions that we made that got us to the point we’re at. We do this when we…

Never Date an Ex

Believe it or not, a lot of people end back up with their exes.  Sometimes there is a lengthy break, sometimes there is no break at all.  But people fear change, a lot would rather take what they have and deal with it instead of move on to new things.  Most of them have already…

And Now Our History Has Been Rewritten

If you’re anything like me, you don’t remember things that are no longer important, your brain just dumps them out of your mind. You don’t remember exact dates, you only remember sequences of events. What I mean by sequences of events, is that you know that things happened before or after other significant events, so…

Everybody Hurts Sometimes

Dear future (ex)wife/girlfriend, It is time we have a heart to heart. I know that by the time you read this it will probably be long overdue but it’s better late than never…unless we’re talking about CPR, using a condom, or stopping at a red light. On second thought, there are many things where better…

Facebook Fake

With facebook people can’t wait to tell the world how much fun they’re having. You get to see photos of vacations, parties, and everyone having a good time. Status update after status update of what people are doing, or what people are buying, and everything in between. There are typically two responses to seeing these…

Pockets of Love

Finding the strength to move on from a relationship gone bad can be more difficult than it has to be. Many people feel they need to stop loving their ex-person in order to move on. Sometimes this isn’t the right thing to do and can cause more harm than good. There’s a big difference between…

Even The Best Fall Down Sometimes

You may be run into a time in a relationship where things get real hard, so hard, that it causes a break up. When someone tells you “It’s not you, it’s me” there may be more truth to that statement than you may realize. Although most people consider that statement an insult because it’s a…
