23

It’s the last day of my birth month and I decided to post today just because I feel like. So I’ve lived two decades and trennium and I feel ancient already. I try so hard so see if I can go with the trend and flow with my friends within my age range but it’s not that easy. Sometimes I feel like a mom, other times a guidance counselor.

My struggles that are too real being short.

Be an expert in Small Talk

Move beyond the weather to make small talk less painful and more productive. Here are five things that great conversationalists know. Small talk gets a bad reputation.

How To Be a Real and True Friend. 

You might be a bad friend without even realizing it. We get so used to people that we become less conscious to the things we say to them or do around them. It could be a good thing or a bad thing. But have you ever wondered how the other person feels about this? Most of your friends won’t want to tell you that you’re hurting them or they don’t like your attitude towards certain things because they don’t want…
