Just in case I’m ever in some extraordinary accident or suffering from some horrible terminal and degenerative disease, either of which leaves me incompetent and on life-support with little to no hope of becoming well again, I would like to be taken off of life-support. I do not want to “live” (or rather, exist) in a vegetative state. Honestly, that sounds like the definition of...
According to the Social Phobia Inventory, I am a score of 55 and therefore suffer from very severe social anxiety. Good to know.
I want to taste where neck meets shoulder. I want to bite down - just hard enough to avoid leaving a mark. No one else needs to know. I want your hands on my hips, nails digging into my skin. This way I can’t pretend it’s all a dream. I want to feel everything, to experience it all, to never come down from this high. I want this now, then, after that, whenever, always. Why is this...

I know that contemporary society is really into the whole conflicted and tormented love ideal, but that’s really not something for which you should strive. Yeah, it might hurt when you love someone and you’re not around them (actually, it can hurt like fucking hell) but it shouldn’t hurt when you’re around them as well. There should be no constant pain and struggle. Love...
My life isn’t something I really talk about on here anymore, or in general.[[MORE]] But, whatever, that hasn’t been for any particular reason other than laziness.

I’ll have 58...
