– I have to reconsider, – me reconsider, yeah
– yeah, my entire life. – Hopefully I remember this a
couple months down the road. – I’m done completely. – You’re done.
– I’m done. – Never gonna stop. My immune system is shit
but I’m never gonna stop. – I don’t think I’m
ever gonna stop either. I think I’m just lost.
– I’m sick all the time. – Some of these are really disgusting – Yeah.

gonna eat a hot dog, still gonna bite my nails. – Let’s do a follow-up
