Old times. :)
Sad cat :’(
To strike balance, that is the key.
People naturally aim for balance—with their spirituality, career, family, and all other things that are dear to them. I would like to think that I was to able to do a little balancing trick this year with all the crazy schedules I needed to attend to. But in some ways, I know I have failed to fully do so. There are times this year that I’ve felt grown up and responsible, but moments come that I also tend to be unreasonable and insensible.
That’s human nature I guess, while I get intertwined in this world, in this lifetime, I know I am bound to commit errors, but that’s not an excuse and I am always making effort to find ways to find my light

I’ve always thought that the question “how will you describe the color ____ to a blind man?” is a bit retard. Now i finally found the most amazing answer.
Impressive, imaginative, and so damn accurate.
