Photo by Rodolfo Clix from Pexels Fun fact about me: I’m a bundle of contradictions. I’m an extroverted introvert in the right circumstances. I believe in God but rely heavily on science, logic, and reasoning that's firmly outside of traditional religion. I’m deeply spiritual, but I’m an extreme cynic. If there’s a reason to doubt, no matter how... Continue Reading →
I’m Definitely Not Going To Hell For This…?
Photo by Keenan Constance from Pexels Do you ever sit down to have a conversation, and then it takes an unexpected turn? It starts off nice and calm. It's actually pleasant and enjoyable.

The Flutter-By Effect
Photo by Pixabay from Pexels I think, at some point, my friends and family will stop talking to me altogether. They’ll get annoyed, become guarded, and watch what they say around me.
