I’ve realized now why I think ‘Save Yourself’ was so fucked up. Like it was fucked up, but it specifically got to me in a way books normally don’t. It was because I fell for it. The book introduces you to this cult mentality, but slowly, not all at once, and I got slowly pulled into it just like the characters did. Although I realized what was happening earlier than they did, it was still a point further than I liked. It scared me I guess, that I could be pulled in like that when I always thought I could recognize an abusive situation right away. But it was so manipulative and sneaky that you didn’t notice what was really happening. I was actually getting mad at the character that were trying to help because I thought they were wrong. I know it was only a book, but it got to me, it was disturbing. Very interesting read, really leads to some introspection
I finished the book. That was fucked up, all I can really say about it. I can’t explain without giving pieces away. Not overly happy about the ending, just kind of stuck me in a ‘that’s fucked up and Im not sure what to do about it’ kind of thought pattern
I hate when people start a texting conversation, but then never add anything to it. Like I will write good responses that could invite questions or at least give you somewhere to continue the convo from there, but then I get one or two word responses. Why? I can't make a conversation out of that! Ask a question or say something new! Or else don't start the conversation in the first place. I don't get it

Was on such a losing streak in league of legends, I have 2 wins in my past 10 :( people disconnected, I played 3v5, ended up with a level 4 in queue with us supporting for me as Master Yi (went 0/18, and we surrendered at 25 mins, how is that even possible?), just awful teams. I didn't even do that badly but it was just a lost cause. You can't win 3v5's. But my last game things finally went better! I went 22/4/21 with Jinx! Actually having a support who knows how to support is a game changer. We only had 4 people too and we still owned.
