Lighting up the next cigarette keeps me going. That’s it.

im not sure, was suicidal last month. the thought that i should survive my parents maybe. i used to have wanderlust and things i wanted to do in life, but lately i don’t know what keeps me going. smoking helps. now i just try to stay out of trouble, kinda purposeless life, would like to complete a few books, and have some songs recorded before i die. lately almost every week, i think about starting to plan my funeral though.

I often think I will have a few good years later in life. My friend says that is hope. My illness may get better and I may have a great relationship with someone I love.
Also, break-through happiness every few days or so.

Yea it’s good to have hope… I’m glad you have it.

Next week there’s a sale on London Broil steak.

My kids. Nothing more.

50 years ago my friend bet me $2.00 I wouldn’t make it to 65. There ain’t no way I’m going lose a bet.
