+ (1|The world is crumbling and depressing, how can I feel happy about anything.)

– It will be like the first warm day after a brutal winter and you greet the sun on your face.

Close my eyes and pretend I don’t exist.

I want to “cultivate a sense of privilege.”

+ (2|Kanye sliders.)

– I’m That Bitch. I did some cocaine and was worried I kept taking

too much in the rotation.

When I don’t work I start to slip away.

– Vaporizer or bong?

+ (@Vaporizer)
-I want to get rid of the interface the phone and just talk without having to dial.

+ (@Bong)

-I forget what else happened, great parties, lots of shrooms, saving one hit for the weekend. I went to this one meeting totally high. It was the perfect use of drugs.

* == 1 => {@ question1}

* == 2 => {@ question2}

– + question1

– – I hate how someone can just insert themselves into your life. Suddenly you’re thinking about them and wondering what they’re doing, wanting to chat, share things.

– + question2

– – It seems like I have to fight for little scraps while everyone else gets the whole world and by everyone else I just mean white people.

– ^buttons (“My horoscope is like bitch CALM DE FUCK DOWN.”,”Last week I texted My Husband about grabbing lunch or dinner. He didn’t respond for about ten minutes then asked ‘Do you want to go to Mexico…?'”)
