Warning: what follows is a rant, quite possibly an emo rant. Yes, the worst kind. And no its not the humourous kind of rant. Unless you like laughing at other people's misery.

Thats how I feel lately. I dont really know exactly why, I know a few things are irritating me lately. You know in my last post I mentioned misanthropy? Maybe its not so far from the truth lately, I think I'm becoming a grumpy old man at the ripe old age of 24.
