What are your most recent thoughts on life as it is in the present moment?

Can you repeat the question? I don’t know, I haven’t really thought about it—all right, I guess? _. I’m alive. It’s okay. A big sigh. Sad. Defeat. Lonely. Pensive. Empty. It sucks. Waiting for something. Long. Freeing. (┬┬┬┬). Relieving. Stationary. Anxious. Traumatic. I’m angry at it. Simply just—why? It’s going.  Neutral.  Long.  Bloated.  Stressful.  Existentially Christ-like. Difficult.  It’s reflected in the clouds.  (❁´◡`❁). High. Energetic. Bright. Betrayal. Sweaty. Fatigue. Dismissive. Congested. Disconnected. Stream-lined. Vacant. ƪ(˘⌣˘)ʃ. It’s getting better.

    I feel like I’m in a place of belonging, yet not at the same time. It’s a weird feeling and I’m not sure if it’s a good or bad thing
