    I'm hearing voices again.

    They're calling my name this time. I've been sleeping with a blade and use it to gain sleep. I feel suffocated. I miss what little friends I have. I just want to talk to someone to get my mind off things. To feel human. I don't want to talk about what's bothering me. No. That...

    Silence!

    Two months ago I completed one of the biggest goals in life I'd yet set for myself. I left my home in Montana in order to live with the one I love in Illinois. And I was so, so happy to have done so. But now, two months later, it's all coming crashing down. Shortly after I...

    They say just let it be,

    but life doesn't work that way. Life can be what we want it to, it it that versatile, but one way or another it is fickle and it likes to play tricks on me. It can't let things be. It takes me to places I never wanted to visit again, they are now different places, even better...
