    My Inards

    Yes, indeed my insides hurt at time. A combination of a poor eating habit & wide span drug consumption has rendered me within various situations. I have become tolerant for the most part, but who know where it will go.

    The past few months have been pretty bittersweet

    for me. As much as I hated my old job, I went in anyway figuring it at least paid the bills.  As much as I wished I could have been laid off, I at least had some place to go to.  Instead, I was terminated for "performance" this past July.  Being laid off would have been...

    Definitely Hurting

    Because I'm losing friends. Not just losing them, but they're actually turning on me. For no reason that's relevant to them. It makes me feel furious to see outsiders manipulating a situation that has nothing to do with them. They will see in the end, but it upsets me so much to...
