This year didn’t go exactly to plan. The year flew by (as always), procrastinating, thinking I had plenty of time to do things later. Today happens to be the 31st of December 2013, the final day of an interesting year. As I’ve reflected over the year that’s passed, I feel a sense of dissatisfaction but on the positive end I feel a sense of clarity. For the past few years I’ve been living in a distorted world, shaped by the media and manufactured with alcoholic substances. I’ve become exactly the person I most hated and who I didn’t want to become. I’ve been a lone inhabitant living in oblivion. With hindsight at 20/20, I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to finally wake up from my nightmare of a lifestyle.
