Yesterday afternoon as I lay in bed, occasionally yelling that I might die*, my roommate moved out the remainder of his things. As he packed up we chatted in this state: him, packing boxes and trotting up and down the stairs, me, laying on my side, wrapped in blankets. Given my morning of failures to keep anything down or stand upright for very long, I was going to shuffle across the street to the...

First off, I wanted to apologize for the venting that occurred yesterday; it seems as if people are just getting more and more idiotic and closed minded, and it just got to the point where I felt like…
