Prompt 1: 4. Finish this sentence: “People would think that I’m exaggerating, but until…“

Answer: I have no idea how to answer this one. Like if it had ended with “, but…” easy enough. the “until” throws me. I suppose the best I could come up with would be

“People would think that I’m exaggerating, but until they’ve lived in my skin for an entire year, they don’t understand exactly how fickle and inconsistently severe my pain is.”

Prompt 2: Three things you can’t go without

(1) Reading material. I’m not as avid a reader as I once was but I NEED reading material or I go mad.
(2) An exchanging of words (bonus points to whoever just broke out into a Panic! At the Disco song.) Whether it is written words being shared and noted upon or conversation… I need fucking human interaction, feedback, an exchanging of words!!
(3) Water. Need it to drink, need it to soak in, need it for sleep.

It is funny. As absolutely addicted as I am to the internet, computers, TV, video games, my phone, Et cetera… I spend genuine thought time to these little challenges you see on Facebook

And I think: YES! Like… I spend time thinking about it. Could I really go without video games, the computer, and the phone? THERE? If I had enough books, enough alcohol, and enough friends/family with me? YES! YES! YES! Where do I sign up?!

I wonder what a month of just solitude would be like. Like those prisoners chained to the wall in the Bizarro cartoons. Of course they had each other... and someone tended to them too maybe.

I'd be ok in the little water hut if I had a couple spiral notebooks - narrow rules preferably and some ball point pens.

It was I who immediately and aggressively broke into I Write Sins Not Tragedies by Panic! At The Disco 🎩🎤

I would also LOVE the chance to go to that remote place with no internet, TV, or phone.... with nothing but plenty of books to read and notebooks for writing.... and then, yeah, alcohol consumption would be nice in that relaxing place!

I'd love to be locked away with enough reading material and yes a notebook with pencil and no media or games at all for a month. I think it would be healthy and most would come away better people for it.
