I'm Alyssa Nichele. I'm unconventional, entirely bonkers, and I'm not sad anymore. Carpe diem, quam minimum credula postero. I refuse to sink. Did perpetual happiness in the Garden of Eden maybe get so boring that eating the apple was justified? Silver Lining. Death doesn’t happen to you, it happens to everyone around you. It’s all the people left standing at your funeral trying to figure out how they’re going to live the rest of their lives now without you in it. Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly. I do not exist to impress the world. I exist to live my life in a way that will make me happy.
