I have great ambiton's to be


I have my lunch breaks in empty

diners, and spend

my evenings with the raunchiest

sitcoms Netflix

has to offer.


I have great ambitions to come

up with

any and all answers without

your help. And, as

incomprehensible as the

meaning of life

is, I like to think I'm cracking

is, until you break). But sometimes,

melting doesn't

sound like the worst

thing that could
