“Nothing is certain in this life except for death and taxes… and arguments.” At least, I think that’s how the quote goes. Fact of the matter is that even on an island of our own, we would still find a way to argue with ourselves. Confrontations are a natural part of li...

The spring is well upon us and temperatures are heating up. We may be on lock-down for now, but if you're single and have plans of starting over elsewhere in a few months, you might want to weigh your options depending on your dating prospects (among many other choices...
