  • Started our in the hut.

    Got out and made noise.

    Let myself fall asleep.

    Started pooping and walking and talking.


    Came out of the closet. Stopped complaining as much.

    Got into College and succeeded.

    Wasted time.

    Ran away.

    Came Back.

    Took an offer I couldn't refuse.

    Tried to refuse it.

    Kept refusing it.

    Will keep refusing it.

    Might be great someday.
