Well depending on the agreed sched of his friends at work...you know..night out with the boys..drink here and there. 1,2,3..4 bottles before going home.

Man Thinking image Pictures, Images and Photos

Who Are You?

Who are you?

A perfect mirror,

A perfect reflection,

And an intelligent one...

Who are you?

A unique human,

A unique creature,

And....unique man.

Who are you?

Like me as I ask myself who I really am..

Another soul searching to advance himself..

Even friends in the real world as I took an inventory, there were none...Maybe it's because I had a bitter experience when it comes to friendship..So for a long time, I've been a loner and afraid… Continue
