Hello. I am honestly not quite certain about myself; however, I do know that I like reading books and taking photos of sceneries, things, and people that I love and would like to remember as days continue to go by. When reading, I am not particularly fond of textbooks, of course, and I am rather interested in books with certain stories that would take me out of this world. I also like a bit of poetry and I am constantly longing for a better vocabulary so that I may continue to find the correct words that may be able to express my feelings as they truly are. I also like making friends and I am generally nice to people. Though I am not entirely fond of going outside, I also love talking with my friends and sharing ideas, opinions, and humor. I like sleeping and the cold weather. I want to explore the world and know a lot of things. I dream of finding the true meaning of life and my purpose. Furthermore, I want to find happiness and satisfaction. It is quite difficult, but I learn throughout the journey that is my life. Despite all of these desires, I remain ever-grateful for all of the blessings God has given me-- for God's presence and grace, for my friends, for my family, for him, for my life itself and the various experiences and realizations that it has brought upon me. So with that, I would like to continue moving forward, pondering, living.
"The reason people find it so hard to be happy is that they always see the past better than it was, the present worse than it is, and the future less resolved than it will be."

"I’m not totally mad at you. I’m just sad. You’re all locked up in that little world of yours, and when I try knocking on the door, you just sort of look up for a second and go right back inside."
Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood (via larmoyante)
