Often the act of waiting is anything but simple.
Many people hate to wait because they are waiting to do something,
get something, or go somewhere.


Waiting doesn’t seem like an act, but the lack of action;  however,
the decision to be patient and willing to wait is an act of courage and perseverance.

About aristakritaya

Writing self descriptions has always been the hardest and most pressurising part for me in any social networking sites but I guess they are necessary, just like how candles need flames and flames need oxygen. I like mermaids, food, citruses, moving about (sports sounds too cheesy and autograph book-like), touching grass and books. I hate not having sun and my friends, fixed assumptions, and not being able to eat my mum's food when I'm sick. I know that I will grow up to be a workaholic and so I'm working desperately to correct this malfunction . Pooping's pretty enjoyable too.
