Two of the most popular video game franchises of all time are Super Mario Bros. and Sonic the Hedgehog. Anyone who has seen both games would know that they have many parallels.

Find all alternate routes to minimize any delays caused by crowds. Do not linger in the halls. Yes, it is fun to stand and talk with your friends, but not only are you wasting your own time, but you are delaying others. It is time to learn how to walk and talk at the same time.

Personally, I am kind of a fitness enthusiast, which probably explains my stance on the movement. I do not support the body positivity movement because I feel that in some cases the concept brings positivity to obesity, why support something that is so deadly and unhealthy?
