Life is funny, ironic and unpredictable. I spent many years in my paper chase. I still wasn’t good enough. It is also my fault that I couldn’t handle my home front and potential working life seamlessly. My tired organic body has slowed down.

I live in a land scarce geographic location. Often in my adult life, I have lived in single level apartments.
