The Known and Unknown

We believe that as long as we’re aware of our surroundings and with our eyes open, nothing unexpected will approach us and we will be safe.

French Fries and Bike Rides

3,560 Days

3,560 days. Nine years, eight months, and twenty-eight days. That’s how long I had with my mother.

What If?

I overthink things far too much and am often paranoid. I analyze conversations, trying to find some deeper meaning behind words when there is none. I assume that if someone doesn't reply immedeately, I've said something wrong or they simply hate me now, and then I hate myself for thinking that because I know it’s not true and there's no logical basis behind it.
