We live in an illusion where nothing is real and you only think you might know just how you feel.
Is there a place where we all can be free? Somewhere that is, apart from virtual reality?
Twitter, Facbook and AskFM. Nowadays you can live most of your life through them.
You don’t have to go out. You can stay at home where you can get to befriend everyone
