Stand Alone Day: MACIKOMA

I hate being woken up because of the need to go to the flaming bus station, but even that in some respects can be a plus; watching the sun rise as you walk, etc. I was quite miffed at the idea of staying behind in class after every one of my friends have left, leaving me to do a certain task again. So I did it, although I was ready to up-and-go, feeling miffed. I felt rather empty as I walked out towards the nearest cake store, even if the sun by then warmed my bones. Sometimes this makes me think, what the fuck in the world can make a human being happy without resorting to buy something or money? Maybe you’d better think about that too.

In the meantime, read this: How many people does it take to change a light bulb 😀 [STOLEN FROM AN E-MAIL]. Applecross Senior High - Two.
