"I want a life that is mine." - Sayuri, Memoirs of a Geisha
It's a shame, I wish my webcam was working, then you could all be treated to ridiculous selfies which I'd take of myself from time to time.
As an explanation to my absence, all I can say is I've been living by: working my butt off, seeing people, trying to find a job, experiencing events and immersing myself in enriching materials resulting in new waves of inspiration and a new appreciation for certain 'things' shall we say. In general nothing socially has changed, I have become a more happier and slightly more self-assured individual this year compared to last. Still I am experiencing this painful squeeze of education and am still confused over my feelings towards people, and myself. Still the only way of getting through life is doing it with the right attitude, and I feel I have caught onto the bare threads of that. Perhaps it's this autumn air making me feel like this, or maybe I am growing up and changing... Who knows.
