One of Those Doors is Me

So the following is the beginning of the memoir I am writing. I am not sure what the end result will be, but what I do know is putting this on paper has been incredibly cathartic. 3,679 more words

It's Official. My Life is Worthless.

I know I’ve been posting an abnormal amount lately, but I’ve been sitting here all day, obsessing over something that happened this morning and I’ve come to the conclusion that I should probably just get it off my chest and move on. 1,021 more words
