Can’t write tonight. Foot hurts from impromptu run. I am trying to shape up. I am 31, 6′ 1″, 175 pounds, and I have never really worked out a day in my life.

THIS CONTAINS MOVIE SPOILERS. SO FUCK YOU. I am behind on my journaling. I knew it was going to happen. Between the podcast, consuming media, and working, who gets the time to write anything down anymore. The last journal topic I wrote about was death and nonexistence.
