I think a free sample might be in order. After all, I could hardly commit to such an expenditure unless I knew that what I'd be getting was worth it. So, if you'd be so kind as to send a free sample, I'd be much obliged. Now, I'd normally just send you the address for my primary residence, but I'm currently wintering in the England, rather than Washington DC. For this reason, you may send the sample to my winter residence, the address for which is as follows: 10 Downing Street, City of Westminster. My thanks, of course!
"Ask nothing more of me, sweet;
All I can give you I give.
Heart of my heart, were it more,
More would be laid at your feet—
Love that should help you to live,
Song that should spur you to soar.

All things were nothing to give,
Once to have sense of you more,
Touch you and taste of you, sweet,
Think you and breathe you and live,
Swept of your wings as they soar,
Trodden by chance of your feet.

I that have love and no more
Give but love of you, sweet.
He that hath more, let him give;
He that hath wings, let him soar;
Mine is the heart at your feet
Here, that must love you to live."

I’m sorry, you’ve misunderstood. This is a full-commitment free trial. Whilst the seven days do not cost you anything, we need your bank details to charge the initial £17.99 and the £200.00 joining fee. We also need to place a hold on the unavoidable £1000.00 early termination fee.

Well, I have to admit, this wouldn't be the first time I've misunderstood something.

In life, it happens that at first glance everything is good. But then everything changes. There are small troubles one after another. Gradually, everything changes for the worse. As a result, life collapses, becomes unbearable. This is how our sins, small and large, manifest themselves. Everything we have done in the past affects our future. What should I do in this situation? To ease the suffering of the soul, to save it. It is necessary to be freed from past sins. It is not necessary to carry such a burden as past sins. It's better to get rid of it. This can be done on the website found-salvation.com. Many people make their lives easier this way. It really helps.

No no, he says that "at first glance, everything is good". That's not right at all. It's more like "everything was terrible. Then, it got worse. Such is life". :P

Snow on the ground. It is not guaranteed every winter here, so it always feels a little magical.

We've got a bit, too. I saw a snowman in the park, and whoever built it didn't put a facemask on him. Disappointed. Missed a chance for a good jape.

I finally have a desk in my bedroom. I can exist without having to be constantly sat on my bed all the time. No more crumbs in my bed, no more spilling food on my bedsheet!

Still need to get a more appropriate desk chair but fuck it, for now it works.

I didn't have anywhere else in my room to eat before now. It was an unfortunate necessity.

This is mine:

It is superb. Splurged a little, but I use it all the time, and my old cheap one from IKEA was hurting my back. This one is the most comfortable chair I've ever used.
