Dear philosophical idiot editors,
Hello, I am at a temp job right now using someone else's computer. Please see the poems below for your approval. Thank you.
Alexandra Marie Naughton
I'm not lonely, and you're not trying to publicly endorse me
so what am I even doing here
it won't matter how many people retweet the people who have gone out of their way to dampen your spirit if you spend your time focusing on a self-improvement journey
the journey is part of the destination, bro
my boss asked me to make a spreadsheet of think piece ideas
for a machine learning program
i said "sure" but it made me resentful
i mean i already know that this is what content is like now but i don't really want to contribute
The hardest thing, bc you need it to survive, is convincing yourself that you're not a bad person when you believe that you really are.
