There are days when I pray to God to make me more content with what I do, give me someone who will love me, make my country more peaceful and cleaner (literally). Then there are days like today when all I need in my life is a plate of takoyaki and a new book, and a chunk of time to sit down and read — and I’ll be happy and high as a kite. The needs vary. And the fact that they do means I am capable of pulling back and just relaxing, as life isn’t a perpetual battle. Thanks, Friday. Thanks, randomness.
