Yeah, Because I'm bad at it, I guess. I don't know what do I call myself? A content writer or a bookworm, or an artist? But for sure, I'm all of them. I have been working in all the fields and polishing my skills so far. Yes, those are the perks of being so disoriented and chaotic. Anyways, Below are my opinions, and everyone has their own. Your and my opinions might differ, but communication doesn't end there. A few of you might communicate with words, while others with art, some with dance and others with actions, a connection is all that is needed. So wish to reach out to me? I'm right here.
