I talked to mom on the phone today. I told her that everything is fine. I lied. There is no point in telling how things really are, there is nothing she can do to change it. Telling her about it will on the other hand make me feel worse. What's worse than feeling worthless? Admitting that you are pretty damn worthless.
I'm thinking about a fantasy character I'd like to create. I'd like him to have a look that makes people think of a tree, but not like the ents and hurons in LOTR. Tree but not a tree, will that ever make sense? How do I describe such a being?
