  • I'm not your conventionally cheerful person. Not to say I'm an unhappy one.

    I love my work but there are questions.

    I am constantly looking for an experience and there are gaps.

    I keep thinking of the people I know and lines from books with the promise that life wouldn't be easy.

    I want to take a break from work that is always at a crucial juncture.

    I want to meet someone but I don't really like anyone's presence.

    I put on a smile when surrounded by people. It's not fake, but when alone my thoughts gulp it up.
