Self care with some tea ✨

I ramble about my sappy mixed feelings and expressing & interpreting them in this blog post.

When I can’t really express how I’m feeling through words, through my awkward body language and my deadpan facial expression :’)

And reflecting on my birthday (which was over a week ago!) Please keep it to this blog; I don’t want to mention it on social media.

Ignore social media and group social things sometimes, focus on occasional 1 to 1 catch ups & activities with my few, kind friends, do what I can with job hunting, freelancing and retreat into my bubble to learn and take care of myself.
