    It Happens At Nighttime

    I just can't stand nighttime, because it just dark outside. Then my boredom sinks in. I would wallow around because it is dark outside and I stay in the house. I start to worry. I always think bad things are going to happen at night. You see, that is what happens, when you...

    Why Isn't This Working!?

    This is awful. My usual sources of entertainment just aren't working anymore. It's all so empty. There's nothing interesting on Youtube (crazy to believe, but it's true), none of the shows I follow are airing at the moment, I don't feel like reading anything, I can't play games...
