Q: You doing okay?

A: For an immortal lighthouse monster that works for minimum wage and zero benefits as a mascot for an uncaring state university, I could be doing worse. I mean, if you want me to be completely honest… no, I’m not doing okay. I don’t really know if anyone’s doing okay. Life ain’t easy. I don’t know if that’s the way it’s supposed to be, but that’s the way it is. I wish I could get away. See the world, meet new people, you know? Maybe I’d find a place where I fit in. Maybe I’d find a place where I could be happy. Lately, everything has gotten so… stale. I don’t know what I’m trying to say here. I’m fine. Don’t worry about me, I’ll be okay. I’m always okay.
