I had a realization today, people don’t actually need me that much. I don’t need to stress out about my school work so much, it’s kinda preventing me from actually getting it done. That’s plants will be okay for a day, hell, so will the cat. No ones actually reading this fucker anyhow, and I have a restorative yoga class to rock. Peace out.
