Life isn’t easy. There isn’t a cheat sheet or an instructions manual to tell you how to sail through life smoothly.

Actually I did have dreams, but they were just stripped away from me so I had none left. If disappointment had a flavor, it would be very bitter. I wanted to pursue a future in graphic design but my family had other plans. Like any other parent, my mom wished for me to have the brightest future I could get, and in their eyes it was a job in the medical field but a brighter future should be a future where I too am happy shouldn’t it?
