In an attempt to be poetic.
I'm Jesh. 18 years old. Currently taking up BS Computer Science at UP Manila.
I love books and music. And food. I have a flair for the dramatic. I write poems and songs. Half-realist, half-hopeless romantic. Caffeine addict. Extroverted introvert. I'm weird like that.

2. If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don’t like and like so many things we don’t do?

Sometimes we’re expected to do things and that expectation drives us away from what we really want to do. There are a lot of factors why we don’t do the things we need to do. Some are costly, some are beyond our reach. Then of course there are some things we just can’t do anything about.
