Let’s put a ban on "busy"

Everyone is busy. Full stop. Busy related-chatter is banal and hijacks the conversation into the land of deadlines, procrastination, anxiety. Busy is a ruse we hide behind.

And more fun too.

I just posted this on literally every social media outlet I’m on. I’m so sick of people saying that. It’s really condescending and a passive aggressive “out” for way too many things.
