Tortuga

Bipolar disorder. We've got ups, we've got downs. Yesterday was down, and I knew it, and I swam around in it and let it fester, and today was significantly better. I committed to having a better day. I started my new lettuce medicine (it's still lechuga in my mind), and it's knocked me on my ass.

Today I chose to keep trying. It's that simple. And it worked today.

Perseverance, secret of all triumphs. -Victor Hugo

College.

I fell off the map again.
