“I came to the desperate realization that I have been in a dead end relationship for far too long. A partnership that is gradually sucking the life out of me transaction by transaction. I have been trapped by years of unfulfilled promises and nonexistent updates. I am being left in the dust while others I know are swept of their feet by sexy, savvy technology. I want to be swept away too. I want to be swept away by Millennium...”
