A Rare Emotional Moment

I am, more often than not,¬†brash, vulgar, and mildly offensive. My observations on life walk the fine line between hilarious and appalling. I believe that overt emotion belongs to teenagers and passionate lovers, while the rest of us should just tuck that shit away for alone time. I am who I am, and I make […]

What Do You Even Do All Day?

My alarm is blaring, signalling that it’s time for me to wake up, despite the feeling that I just fell asleep. 4:45 am – waking up this early is inhuman. I aggressively rub sleep from my eyes and fight to drag myself from the warmth of my bed. I quietly exit the bedroom and make […]
