Feel like giving up on uni? Want to just be done with it? Well, as Monica says in Friends, “Welcome to the real world. It sucks, but you’re going to love it.”

I am a bubbly person with an unlimited bunch of smiles and giggles. I love to read Shakespeare, pen down the unspoken words, paint my emotions and lastly, cook at oddly hours.
