    Sometimes I think I'm having a breakdown.

    Perhaps For The Best?

    Sometimes, you have to break down to build yourself back up into something stronger. Trying to build upon a shaky foundation will usually result in no progress. But for sure, I need to either break through or break down. I feel that this is what's keeping me from making any sort...

    So I'm in the middle of a breakdown right now.

    I don't have any real friends I can call, I just have my unreliable self and my immaginary company. Special thanks to social networks of course.
