Innovation in socialist states

Rated 12+ for the following

I am not a parent.
While interacting with the Ted Books app, I scrolled down to the details. The Rating was 12+ and 12+ means: Infrequent/mild profanity or crude humor, mild sexual content and nudity, mild mature/suggestive themes, mild alcohol, tobacco, or Drug Use or References.

How do these App store ratings really work?

I caught this disruptive innovation that came with the 'iTrain' late, hence the world clearly passed me by. Maybe I am too late to complain, to late to wonder.

4+Contains no objectionable material.
9+May contain mild or infrequent occurrences of cartoon, fantasy or realistic violence, and mild or infrequent mature, suggestive, or horror-themed content which may not be suitable for children under the age of 9.
12+May contain frequent or intense cartoon, fantasy or realistic violence, mild or infrequent mature or suggestive themes, mild or infrequent bad language, and simulated gambling which may not be suitable for children under the age of 12.
17+May contain frequent and intense realistic violence, unrestricted internet access, frequent and intense mature, horror, and suggestive themes; also strong sexual content, nudity, strong language, alcohol, tobacco, and drugs which may not be suitable for children under the age of 17. Whenever an app of this rating is requested for download, a message will appear, verifying if a user is 17 or older, and asking to confirm the purchase for this reason.

Implosive youth

Pulled this one out of my drafts. It was from a time in 2010. I don't remember how the post was to end but I clearly remember quitting the job after three days of employment, after I was asked to serve the MD his dinner, or something stupid like that. I just looked for another job on the fourth day.

I just need to rant.
Not getting any job satisfaction and I feel like screaming. This can't be it, this definitely can't be what my life and career would be about in the future. If I sit one more day in this chair, I might just explode. This has got to be my last day here. It's everything ... the job description, the traffic, the location and worst of all ...

Licking Wounds

March 18 2013.
In 'love' in February, licking wounds in March. Switching from nicknames back to full names.
You get hurt and you suddenly feel the overwhelming need to show that you’re fine and doing well.

March 6 2014.
You are fine and doing well.
Time heals.

Work in Progress

Not all who wander are lost.

I have eloped, escaped, trekked, traveled, wondered, wandered, meandered and each farther step has brought me closer.
In each moment of my days I have learned, hoped, cried, prayed, believed, sunk, sung, danced.
Taken risks, set paces, joined band wagons, made life changing choices, been indecisive.
Made friends and lost some along the way.
I have aspired, achieved, and I have become.
All in all, I am on my way.
