army of tweaked mes

There are very few people who I can always be completely myself around. There are a handful of people who accept me and like me for who I already am. They don't expect me to be more like them or to agree with them or to act more pious or politically correct. But with everyone... Continue Reading →

defining yourself

The ideas we have that nothing becomes of, the dreams unpursued, the fleeting thoughts that are never contemplated like... Continue Reading →
