Too many excuses. I'd say that there are a million of them, but I've already been called on using that number too often. It's just another excuse. So, instead, I'll say lots.
And when one or two or a hundred are disproved, there are scores more waiting to take their place. Or, even easier, memory becomes conveniently optional.
I'm supposed to be having fun. Everything is supposed to be a lark.
But it doesn't work that way. Not for me.
For me, this is too important to take lightly. It's my life after all. The only one I have.
And this, this whatever-it-is that keeps me going. I don't even know what to call it sometimes. Stupid hope is usually the term that I employ.
But is hope ever really stupid?
Everyone On Earth tells me that it is, in this particular case. That doesn't make them right.
This is hurting nobody except myself. It's my choice, and I do choose it. Choice is something I didn't have for a very long time, but now I do. Now I have a choice and nothing else has changed.
Anyway, in a little less than 20 hours, this year will end for me. This year in which everything fell apart. This year in which everything continues to fall apart. Constantly crumbling into smaller and smaller pieces.
I can't fucking wait for this year to end.
