I keep going back and forth with this post. On the one hand I'm like: "It's been one year since your life collapsed. Look how far you've come! Write about it!" Then I start writing and I think: "Goddamn why are you still SO SAD?" Then I cocoon myself in between blankets and pillows, put on my dad's dogtag, and watch comedy shows on Netflix.
