me and my existential crisis

Finally caught the cny bug which has been spreading around, and am nicely nestled at home today. Do your cravings grow exponentially when you’re sick? Because mine sure does. 😭 TOLONG THROAT PLEASE GET WELL SOON.Anyway, whenever my immune system starts giving up on me, my schedule gets emptied out and I’ll spend the day cooped up at home doing the same few things: 1) Brain starts wandering around to think of any 有的没的2) Excessive scrolling of social media3) Laying in bed for 12h

Then I thought a little further.... surely people won’t joke about death? Ended up doing a quick Google. And was completely reeling in shock from this newfound information.
