the good old days.
“I can’t dump him now, because then people would think I am even more of a slut than they already do. How could one mistake cause my life to crumble like this?”

I don’t care what anyone tells you, the most intimate thing you can do with your significant other is share your Netflix account. Nick has totally ruined my recommendations. I now have a category for “gritty action flicks”… And I got a special email alerting me to the new season of Bob’s Burgers. Look before you leap, my friends!
Things I learn as I get older:
Many many people have felt all the feelings I am feeling.
Many many people have the same fears.
Lots of people in this world are fat. Most people get fat when they get older. They don’t really give a fuck.
I am not special or unique or extraordinary. In some ways I am less shitty than my peers and in some ways I am more so.
I am a blip. A speck. I don’t have to Do Great Things or Make A Grand Contribution To Society.
I should just relax and love the people around me.
I may be alone till I die. I may not be. I can’t do a goddamn thing to control it.
This may sound depressing, but all of these truths are giving me a lot of comfort right now. My “isolated anxious creative female genius” shtick has gone on long enough. Goodbye angst, hello mediocre acceptance!
