i was merely 14 when i made my first SM account on hi5 and then orkut

i loved SM before it was formally known so, i loved fb back in the day, i found great music through it, it basically refined my taste in everything

i was in college, raging to express, tumblr helped, i found the writer within

i moved cities, had no friends, twitter helped, i befriended and dated through it

SM has been great to me but it has taken a toll on me too

i now step into the future of SM, Mastodon!

so much to say but nothing to write, hate this feeling

The Covid-19 lockdown may have increased the spread of other respiratory tract infections (which kill 1000 Indians per day) by forcing people to stay inside crowded and insanitary housing. Add to that the "deaths of despair" because of loss of livelihood.

After arguing with him, it usually takes me some time to calm myself down and manage my anger. So, basically I can stay at home all I want but I am still at risk because of him not giving a fuck.
