Soy Un Perdedor — You can’t write if you can’t relate
A few weeks ago, I was listening to a podcast. It had to do with people glorifying their mental illness to gain notoriety. Originally, I wanted to write about that, but like most of my etch-a-sketch ideas, it went on the long list of things to write about. And it’ll possibly die there.
