Can you repeat the question? I don’t know, I haven’t really thought about it—all right, I guess? ಥ_ಥ. 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.

What are think? Butterfly. You? Sad? Happy? Tell? Leaf. One leaf falling. Falling ofto another leaf.
My most recent thoughts is that I feel anxious. Suspiciously anxious.
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
