    Delayed Pragmatism

    After four years of perfectionism and loads of procrastination, I am now about to loose it all. I hope not, but it is easy to just have another slipage. So many things got on my way and so many times I failed them and myself. So many times I was defeated by technology, health...

    I'm Just Sick Of It
