There’s never enough time to do all the nothing you want

I got so many ‘nothings’ on my list, that I decided to drop them all (too many nothings aren’t so healthy), and just rest. You may call it ‘being lazy’, but in my eyes – I have achieved a lot. “Everybody seems to think I’m lazy I don’t mind, I think they’re crazy.

“The Pearl Territory”, ch 13 – Alexis

Alexis – #privatejournal  Sexual guilt, anxiety, depression… I am free from all of that crap. I left my soul in the respiratory for a year. Do I feel worse than I did before? Damn, no. Everyone who has left their soul at least once knows the drill – the feeling that “you” can never be “I”,” and that your spirit is not a good Samaritan who will fix your problems with...

Book cover alert!

I’m planning to change my “Absurd” book cover, because (so far) it sells better than Dulcinea. And Dulcinea got a professional cover already. So, there’re 8 variants. Look at the first 4 below.
