Lots of people tell me that I'm stupid, retarded, whatever. Lots of people tell me that I'm wasting my time.
Usually, I can ignore it when people tell me these things. Because they just don't know. They're not in my situation, and so there's no way they can really know.
Most of the time, I can ignore it when people tell me these things.
And then, then there are days like today. Days like today when I suspect that all those people are telling me the truth.
