I CONSTANTLY go back and forth on the idea of bringing a child into this world. Now everyone is so sensitive and politically correct. It drives me mad. There is 50 different sexual orientations and god forbid you “assume” someone is a male or female. Let me just say this, “I DON’T GIVE A DAMN WHAT YOU DO.” I don’t care what you believe is … Continue reading Nobody gives a crap about Kathy Griffin
Soundtrack: Nobody can save me now by Linkin Park With everything that’s been going on the past few weeks, I’m strangely keeping it together.

He asks me, “So, when do you think you’ll start dating again?” Now, at the time, I’m still getting back to normal. I’m like “ahh, I don’t know, man.
