Hey friends! So, I’m not dead. I just lost every ounce of my motivation a few months ago, and that’s just one of the many fun symptoms of depression I deal with. I have a very comprehensive post about my reaction to Season 2 of Thirteen Reasons Why coming up, though, even though it’s so far … More Update
Boys…I just don’t even know how to begin. I love you. I love you so so much. More than my own life. I would do anything, ANYTHING to keep you safe. Right now, you’re playing Minecraft, building fantasy worlds filled with mazes and TNT cannons and FNAF statues and towns that are bursting with creativity. … More This isn’t the world I wanted for you.
Through early morning fog I see Visions of the things to be The pains that are withheld from me I realize and I can see That suicide is painless It brings on many changes And I can take or leave it if I please -Johnny Mandel & Mike Altman- It isn’t, though. It’s not painless … More Suicide is(n’t) Painless
I’ve been trying to write this one for a while, and I keep not writing it for the very reasons it needs to be written.

How about those election results, eh? Pretty…surprising…all around? I’m not actually here to talk about that. I’m just exhausted by all of it at this point. I can see how it sucked from both sides of the aisle, I’ve made my peace with those who voted differently than I did. I’m trying to remain optimistic … More News and the information age
Alright everyone. Sit down and listen. If you’re offended by what follows, then I’m talking to you. If you aren’t, then I’m not. That’s the only half-assed apology I’m going to make for this one. I’m not going to tell you who to vote for, so get the chip off your shoulder. This isn’t … More Think before you speak
I want to say that I am not blind to the fact that the last post I wrote before today’s was not totally in-keeping with today’s message.
