These are just some things you probably didn't know. You would know if the internet weren't such a horrible place these days- distracting you from researching stuff like this with all the dramatic headlines catching your eye first. So many things we could be learning and doing if we weren't all so hyped up on the modern day hysteria. With a nation full of so much hate, despair, confusion and sadness... isn't it cool to learn new things? I miss the days where jokes and discussion about new trends were popular. We've lost ourselves so much in politics and all the bullshit going on in the world, that we have forgotten how to communicate with people.

We've forgotten how to be genuinely kind to people.
