Thanks Mr. Edison, we’ll take it from here! I currently work part-time in a hardware store. It’s educational, tedious, fun and repetative, usually at the same time. Makes me feel like I’m in a BBC sitcom a lot of time, … Continue reading
When I used to go out I would know everyone that I saw, Now I go out alone if I go out at all…
