    It's fascinating to me because I don't do much. Frankly, I don't do... anything. I sleep a good 15 hours of the 24 I get. The rest, I spend eating, wandering around the web, watching movies or tvshows in my bed on my lap top or on the couch in front of the tv. I pretend to go to...

    Will I get a good job that I even like? Will I get married or have children? When and how will I die? What kind of condition will the world even be in within the next ten years? Then you turn those crap thoughts off and just watch Adult Swim or something.
