Bro we are in a recession. I mean the economy too, but this ain't the place for that. That's what Earn Your Leisure is for. People are losing their friends and not making new ones. Shit, the friendships we have don't hit the same
Anyways, the homie Mario came through to talk about the decline, how we got here, how *we* choose to navigate it, and most importantly, celebrate our own budding friendship
