Well, the weekend is arriving yet again. Significantly, it marks another week you’ve lived through and subsequently another week that you’ve marched closer to your inevitable death. It’s unfortunate but true. Now, you can either sit in a dark room at home and sulk about how much of 2015 you’ve wasted already or you can go out, enjoy the world, see the sights and engage your mind and your unconscious love of people and alcohol in the same vicinity. The choice, dear friend, is yours.
