The other day, while scrolling through Instagram, I realized why people say that social media can both be a boon and a bane. It hasn’t felt like a boon in the past few months what with all the disturbing news flying around, but especially since the last 2 days, it has been hell for me … Continue reading To all the friends that I lost before
No more Formal Letters. I wish I could die. I think this every day. I stay numb for hours. I wish to not wake up the next morning when I sleep so that I don’t feel the heavy weight on my chest. I wish I would not have to see people, work without any motivation … Continue reading Leave Note
Hope. You all asked me to hope for good, to have faith, in me, in future. How could I have faith in something that kept deceiving me in the past. I always dreamt big, like you asked me to. I even worked hard for it, at least I think I did. Regardless of the monsters … Continue reading Wonderland?
