    About Having Too Few Friends

    I have very few people that I can call, with no doubt, friends. Like already told in another story of mine, I happened to have a great female friend and fell deeply in love with her. Nothing ever happened, and now, I have many reasons to believe that our friendship no...

    Nothingness Is All I Have

    My life has only one person in it, me. My day consists of sitting at the computer or reading eBooks on the laptop in bed, nothing more. Here I sit surrounded by my own filth, empty bottles of booze litter the floor, a mountains worth of half smoked cigarettes all around me, books...

    Loneliness and isolation are something,

    that over the past decade, I have come to know with an alarming familiarity, which feels strange especially given my relatively young age of 20. I’ve never particularly fit in anywhere. During primary school my time was often spent alone, for reasons I could never fathom I was...
