Facebook is making the world a hardhearted bitch

Facebook is making the world a hardhearted bitch
I remember being asked when I was younger what I would want my super power to be if I could only have one. “I want to be able to fly,” I would normally answer.

Hey negative people, if you don't like what I love just keep it to yourself

Hey negative people, if you don't like what I love just keep it to yourself
As someone who loves to be in a crowd and who loves to step into the spotlight, it comes as a shock to a lot of people that I do not really care for people that much.

Know when it's time to break up with your gym...
My relationship with XSport started like any other gym membership. In the beginning, we could not get enough of each other.

Eating donuts at the gym? Give me a break!
One of the worst parts about becoming a gym rat is the realization of how disgusting people actually are. While I try to give everyone the benefit of the doubt, sometimes it is just hard. Some people just need to give up and go home. Side Note: Before I get accused of being mean, I... Read more »
