Finally! A new addition to my series. I’m thinking of making prints available (although I don’t know how that works because I’ve never sold prints in my whole life lol).

One moment, I’m ecstatic and interested in everyone, the next minute, I hate the world. Interacting with so many people at once is emotionally draining for me. I had dinner with friends tonight—there were 22 of us all in all at the table. I love them all and I’m close to most of them, but I guess there’s no curing my aversion to crowds. At the end of the day, I feel like curling up in a ball and disappearing from the world. At extremes, I feel like crying for no apparent reason… I just feel so empty. Is this normal?
