I went ahead and created a new word. Clutterfuk might not be applicable to all cultures and throughout different generations of humanity, but is certainly has its place in the contemporary United States. You could use the word for multiple situations, such as any that could be used for the more common term clusterfuk. Clutterfuk […]

7 Things I Have Learned From Camping

I know some folks camp more and perhaps better than me. Many millions of people have homes that mirror what I would call camping throughout their entire lives.
