    I never heard “Stressed Out” by Twenty One Pilots before today when I first discovered the song thanks to Puddles Pity Party.

    You don’t need a long time listening to the lyrics of the song to understand the universal emotions conveyed by it. The song compares the carefree childhood with the stressful adulthood.

    Dreaming as a child of travelling to outer space are compared to adult worries about appearance and the need to make money.

    The points are emphasized by the singalong chorus, “Wish we could turn back time to the good old days / When our momma sang us to sleep but now we’re stressed out.”

    The Trump administration has featured some colorful characters, none as colorful as the former White House communication director Anthony Scaramucci.

    People have a lot of opinions about colorful people like Anthony Scaramucci. My feelings about him as a public person is that obviously his language in that phone call with Ryan Lizza is not suitable for anyone, public or private person. But one thing Scaramucci have that most politicians and public people are missing is passion, when he speak you can, between the foul language, hear that he is in it 100% and is doing his job wholehearted.
