i would like to pay special attention to: number 3, especially to numbers 4sub a-4sub d, and to the idioms of the verb "nerve".

  1. Well I have to say that from me stumbling onto your wonderful words, and not knowing you that I think your writing is fantastic.

    Sucks that whoever the dumbass was that treated you so poorly and with a major lack of respect. We are all aware that people like this end up getting what they deserve.

    SOme times we hold on to things we should have let go of a long time ago. Yet we let go of the things that are so very important at times as well.

    We are fucked as a whole.
