We are on the brink of nuclear war And the other day my mentally ill formerly favorite uncle choked on a piece of meat in his mental institution and SHOCKER no one noticed for 20 minutes and so now he is in another hospital on ICU. And it’s also DEATH TIME for me as a […]
We live in a globalized world. What’s happening to a country on the other side of the world affects the lives of those living in countries on the opposite side of the world. While bombs aren’t falling on my head, seeing them fall on civilians in Ukraine is nauseating and feels super close somehow. I […]
