Saying you’re “not a huge fan of the farmers’ market” in San Francisco is like saying, “Yeah, I think Lindsay Lohan’s a good role model” or “What’s wrong with the Westboro baptist church?” And yet, when this fruit went to check it out for the first time, he felt like he didn’t really fit in.

After a breakup, everyone goes through certain rituals in an attempt to get over their former lover. Photos are burned, love letters are shredded, articles of their clothing that once acted like a security blanket are tossed in the dumpster. Once that’s all done, the heart-broken can proudly announce, “I’m over them!” But we all know they’re lying. The day you’re truly over someone is not the day you set their old mixed CDs on fire, it’s the day you stop thinking about them altogether. My new article on Thought Catalog is a description of what that day might be like.
It’s Murphy’s Law of Music – if you put your iPod on shuffle and another person is listening, you will undoubtedly subject them to the most embarrassing tunes your music library has to offer.

As this new article on Thought Catalog warns though, don’t let any of these songs accidentally slip onto the list!

Here is everything I think we can learn from our food, new on Thought Catalog.
