The idea of living honestly, in truth, is nothing new. We're taught from a young age to be truthful or bad things will happen. But we learn that bad things (consequences) happen when we tell the truth, so it's a Catch 22. In order to save face, not look like a bad guy, we fib. … Continue reading That Which Scares Me, May I Be Free

For years I've been using an extremely boring, oversized black plastic cup and reused McDonalds straws for my smoothies. Yeah. I'm glamorous.
