Mr. Independent Dear diary, I spend ten minutes in quiet contemplation. Call it a moment of silence in preparation for an act of utmost creativity.

What it takes to make a home Dear Diary, I sit here in a vacant chair at a strange airport, feeling the weight of dirt and grime of three continents on my skin and hair.

It's difficult to imagine, what sort of global catastrophe Would be so severe, to mark the end of all humanity? Are… Continue reading Getting ready for doomsday?
Oh, my dear paycheck. You were here just days ago, and it's already time for you to go. You make my life seem worth living, you never ask, but keep on giving. You know how to lighten up my mood, and make me feel better when I'm not so good. I wish that you could… Continue reading Goodbye, dear paycheck.
