when they see you as “the threat”, you have ruined their lunch

there are certain people who see you as “the threat“.

you didn’t necessarily do anything to provoke them.
you were just being you and they hated it.
i’ve been labeled “the threat” on countless occasions.

i am the (un) plug

everyone needs a break from time to time.
this is why the word “vacation” makes people feel all tingly inside.
in this panorama world,
for some,
traveling for vacation is out of the question.

i’ve been thinking of doing a staycation in the city but money has been a little tight.

i am responsible for your trauma and insecurities because of everything i do to you.
