God’s plan

God's plan

Everyday starts out the same—a longing yawn that spurs our entire organs to wakening. However they end differently. Sometimes different is good, other times it’s bad different. The high priestess draws are unpredictable Sometimes we wake up with a single goal in mind like, find food, the next minute a dentist is sawing off your […]

Alexander’s guide to Relinquishing control

control

It takes a lot to admit I have a problem. It’s not exactly a habit. I doubt it’s as easy as quitting sugar cravings, perhaps everyone struggles this at some point. I may have written about this previously in subtext. Hi, my name is Idara-abasi and I’m a control addict. Origin I guess this stems […]
