I want to learn ancient languages- latin, sanskrit, arabic. I want to quote forgotten authors, stumble upon old,dusty books in tumbledown libraries.

I laze around all day, I hardly move a muscle, My eyes strain from the constant screen exposure, I kinda miss the hustle. “This is … Continue reading When the vacation gets too long
