lost weekends found

To all my people who know where your wallet is this morning, put your hands up! All my people who woke up in their own beds, put your hands up! All my people, who didn’t have to read their sent text messages to remember their weekends, throw your hands up! I mean not to invoke every […]

Hours and hours of laughing. How dare they. Didn’t they realize the state of the world? Didn’t they notice that the planet was slowly hurling itself into a vortex of shit?

Here’s something crazy: 8 years ago today, I stopped drinking and doing drugs. Even crazier? I haven’t started again. As in 2920 days in a row without a day drinking, night drinking, late afternoon drinking– any kind of drinking at all. Oh and no drugs either which is really something because I like drugs a […]
