Has there ever been a time where you felt worthless, cast aside, hidden?
I remember watching A Bug's Life with my girlfriend. (She's really into Disney movies.) In this movie, a guy named Flick is an inventor who tries hard to come up with ideas that improves on the workload of his colony. Everytime he comes with a new invention, he winds up screwing up the work being done by his colony, which gained him a chacne at exile.
I will try to avoid giving away the movie, but…Continue

I was going to save this one for tomorrow, but I thought I'd write this now. It's the type of blog that will lead people to say "duh", so if this seems obvious to you, I'd run along elsewhere.
