Okay, let me be productive. I really need to figure out a time to exercise as well. I want to do it discretely. Before I get real good, I don’t want to run into someone I know. Hehe. I can go acr...
I should JUST be grateful. Don’t think about “the lack of you,” but rather about “the presence of you”.
The thing is that, I look around at people in my life, and I think, “none of ...

I don’t want to teach philosophy for the rest of my life.
