I Hate The Way Reality Sets In

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 333 People

    I like to believe that I'm a realist

    but sometimes it's fun and freeing to get lost in something else, you know??? But today, reality bit me in the ***!!! Oh, and not just ONCE, mind you! But TWICE!!!!! TWICE.......in one ******* day?!?!?!? Are you kidding me??? Damn.
