A New Life

So. I've been to North America for the very first time. Arrived in Toronto and made our way down to New York City via Buffalo and Syracuse.

NYC was pretty cool. I love how packed in it all is, feels…

A text about self-confidence

Things gone by. Things affect everything. I've been out with maybe six or seven guys. Only two of whom really seem to matter in the long term. One hurt me, more than once. And the other, I hurt. And out…

Somewhere Else

So I broke out,

Who Is The Future?

Hey you, are you the future?

I picture us in our home. A home, together, where we can base our lives. You do your thing and contribute what you have, and I'm doing my thing in my little world. We're…

Hunting For The Invisible
