    Day 42

    I wouldn't mind being a robot: Superhuman strength, near indestructibility, and no useless emotions. At least, until some spunky kid comes along decides to try and teach me how to "love". Go play baseball or something you little twat!

    Is it possible to be in love with someone you barely know?

    There's a girl. When I'm near her, when I talk to her, when I see her smile, my heart skips like crazy. I thought it was just a crush.
