I strongly believe you should have the tacos first. And please understand, you’re not the only one who’s had this problem, wondering if they should have their delicious tacos before breaking off their two-year relationship.
Tacos are the perfect meal, in fact, because they’re lightweight and their ingredients are brightly colored, so they can easily be found scattered around Continue reading “Should I end a 2 year relationship before or after we eat tacos?”

A beautiful song about breaking up, feeling small, and having a vivid imagination! On just another Wednesday night at my place!

Cat Stevens actually wrote a song about this.

How do top students overcome social media addiction?
Mark Urso, Author of “A Candle Lit” (from Quora) …
They can take classes in programming social media applications!
Then they could become dealers, abandoning their morals and pushing social media applications on others, especially good-looking girls, to try to get them hooked, and turn them into pushers as well.

This can be extremely profitable. Continue reading “Social Media Addiction is Real!”
