Some days it is only bearable to just lay in bed. Honestly, that is all that I can really bear. And even when I am sitting there, doing nothing, being a lazy shit I think about everything I have, everything I can achieve, everything that I have achieved, and I really don’t fucking care. I don’t care about anything anymore. I say that now, but I will wake up tomorrow and find something to get me through the day, something to make my life seem like it matters.

They think that they are happy but they really aren’t. And honestly, maybe that is fine.
Maybe that’s just life. But I don’t want that. I want to be something incredible. I want to be something that is influential. I just don’t know what is influential about me at this point. If I can’t even get a decent looking guy to want to talk to me then how the fuck am
I going to get people to care? It’s not like I’m ugly. I am not ugly. If anything I am classically handsome. It…
