If you don’t have a Tumblr account, make one now so that you can waste time reading relatable posts about the human capacity to waste time. I kid you not, this is your life now.

At least someone understands. Because a lot of the time, the whole process can seem confusing and impossible.

Kinda sounds like I’m consoling someone after a breakup, though. But you know what I mean.
