I have a distorted, romantic vision of all the “could have been”s

Yep. As simple as that. I look into past events which may not have been the most pleasant ones I have gone through; grab a gigantic tin of pink paint and throw it all over my memories - butterflies and glitter included. What an idiot. But I guess I am not the only one. Yes, [...]
