It’s hard not to notice how much of our generation’s cultural language is based on irony, sarcasm, and a sense of cool detachment. Being too invested in anything — even things that may be considered objectively important — renders you vulnerable.

Well, I look forward to everyone’s support by reading the upcoming random musings of this little mind of mine.
