It is why technocrats tend to make decisions that lack empathy.
The fact that you are old enough to be married, or have your own children is by the way. All a mother wants to do is keep you safe.

Right now, my account status and my heart desires are not in the same tax bracket.
No matter how fast you are moving, if you are heading in the wrong direction, no amount of speed will bring you to your intended destination.

The “To-Don’t List” is exactly what you think it is. It is a list of everything you will not be doing. An exact opposite of the “To-Do List”.
This list can be inspired by a decision to change your habit, a desire for something better, or plain laziness and procrastination.

What fuels you when passion runs out?
On January 21 of this year, my Instagram account came under a hacker’s attack.
