Why I'm Chasing White Rabbits

There are no self help books that help me. There are no books that grab me by the face and stare me in the eye and say "Hey! This is why your life is why it is and this is how to fix it!"

Instead, I've chosen to pursue my white rabbit down the hole. Nothing makes sense and for the last four months, I've been Alice, just trying to figure shit out.

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland:
Either the well was very deep, or she fell very slowly, for she had plenty of time as she went down to look about her and to wonder what was going to happen next.

The King
Begin at the beginning and go on till you come to the end: then stop.

The Gryphon: The adventures first… explanations take such a dreadful time.

I wonder if I've been changed in the night? Let me think. Was I the same when I got up this morning? I almost think I can remember feeling a little different. But if I'm not the same, the next question is 'Who in the world am I?' Ah, that's the great puzzle!

I can't explain myself, I'm afraid, Sir, because I'm not myself you see.

Lewis Carroll Quotes
If you don't know where you are going, any road will take you there.

Through the Looking Glass:
The Queen: Sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland:
Alice: But it's no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland:
And she tried to fancy what the flame of a candle is like after the candle is blown out, for she could not remember ever having seen such a thing.

The Mock Turtle
What is the use of repeating all that stuff, if you don't explain it as you go on? It's by far the most confusing thing I ever heard!

It would be so nice if something made sense for a change.

Oh, how I wish I could shut up like a telescope! I think I could, if I only knew how to begin.

Your tattoo artist is really talented. Very nice work!

I've been wanting a tattoo for years and years but I'm afraid that it would just turn into a big ugly keloid on me (as almost all of my recent surgical scars have done.)
