“Either that, or it’ll get you a punch in the nose.”

“We all spend so much time not saying what we want, because we know we can’t have it. And because it sounds ungracious, or ungrateful, or disloyal, or childish, or banal. Or because we’re so desperate to pretend that things are OK, really, that confessing to ourselves they’re not looks like a bad move. Go on, say what you want. … Whatever it is, say it to yourself. The truth will set you free. Either that or it’ll get you a punch in the nose. Surviving in whatever life you’re living means lying, and lying corrodes the soul, so take a break from the lies for just one minute.”

A Long Way Down (Nick Hornby)

I know generally I should be doing better than anyone with a job right now, but the truth is that we are all just fighting our own different battles. This one is just 111 days away from the finish line. P.S: shock, surprise. I’m still alive. This blog is actually till here.
