  • Always Shine

    Always Shine

    ★★★★

    I've always struggled to relish in another's accomplishments, to feel truly and purely happy in someone’s success, because I have such a strong inclination towards envy. I am a natural competitor in the least attractive ways, and a day does not go by where I do not compare myself to others.

    “[the relationship with the octopus] there’s no greater feeling in the world”

    The sexual tension between this octopus simp of a man and this creature is not TV appropriate, I mean I cannot be the only one thinking this. He creeps me tf out

    Cool shots tho
