My Searching and Fearless Moral Inventory

By | September 19, 2019

I apologize to the world. Yes, I know that statement sounds really stupid. But hear me out. I know that I often rub people the wrong way. I can be thick as a brick and not realize when others find my presence or my behavior grating. I have often been so needy and so focused on attention-seeking behavior… Read More »

Continued Dumbassery, Duke Chapel Edition

News

By | November 23, 2017

From time to time I see a reporter from some newspaper or other news source asking around on Twitter for people who wouldn’t mind sharing their opinions about this or that or the other. Being the complete attention whore that I am (when I’m not experiencing fits of self-loathing over my attention-seeking behavior), I’m not above raising my… Read More »
