You never realize the day it happens. The day you wake up and your life literally decides to just "spruce " things up a bit. A little plot twist. When the realization hits, its almost confusing.

I Hope You Don’t Understand

“You’re a failure. Everything you’re doing is a waste of time. Disappointment. That’s all you have to offer, disappointment. Sure you’ve done good compared to some. You’re not homeless. You have a steady income. You’re still in school. 7 years after graduating high school and you’re still working on that degree. Good for you I... Continue Reading →
