Quick Note: Thank you for scrolling down to the end. I have seen this questionnaire from my other social media account and I thought of rewriting my answers for this year to see if I feel the same sentiment I’ve had eight years in the past. A rare instances that I felt the same way but most of it changed. It was fun seeing my old answers and just contemplate on how angry I was back then. haha. That particular year was pretty hard on me, as you may have read.
