Why not just relax and become a mental patient? Institution of your choice. Drug of choice. Identity of choice.
I feel as though I have just discovered my true calling in life; to be a philosopher. Which may very well be why it took me so long to arrive at this point.

… I always see three deer on this day of the year…
My schoolmate once asked me, ‘How do you get away with barely attending classes and turning in assignments after the deadline?’
I answered, ‘Because I hate myself and have to see a therapist to convince me that I do not; I take medication each day to feel as though my being alive is not wasting everybody else’s time. The mere thought of anyone knowing this makes me wish to die— I, too, am surprised that I get away with living.’

The knowledge that you don’t enjoy what you’re doing is surprisingly comforting.
The instant that I conceive a brilliant idea could be the closest thing to happiness that I know.
