Oh so you're actually a fellow slav!

I find Russian to sound much nicer than Polish btw.

I also find it fascinating how I don't understand Russian but then suddenly there is a word or a phrase that is identical in Croatian.

Mother Russia <3

Such a shame they turned into such agressively regressive dicks lately.

Russia was pretty cool back in the 80's. Or so they say.

Yugoslavia was cooler.

Today is my friend Jenny's birthday. She would have been 35.

For those who don't remember or didn't see my post over the summer, Jenny committed suicide on July 12th. It was a complicated situation but basically, Jenny lost all of the things she had to care for. Her long time dog passed away in March and her long time boyfriend (one of my best friends) broke up with her unexpectedly after they moved across the country. That's a whole other story but I'll leave it be. We think those two things were what was keeping her going this whole time. Once she lost those, she just had herself to take care of, and she wasn't up for it. I hope she's at peace. I miss her a lot.

It's weird that I'm remembering her birthday that she'll never get to have. Life is f*cking bullsh*t sometimes.

Anyway, happy birthday Jenny. Love you.

Super tough thing to have to remember Exo; I'm sure it brings some dark memories back, but hopefully also some good ones. I'm sure wherever she is she's smiling down on you. Peace, my friend.

Happy birthday Jenny


One of my friends (not a very close one, but one that was always around) committed suicide this year too

I lost a close friend a few years ago too, though not to suicide; she was just very sick. Anyway, it's always best to remember the good times with your friends.
