I Am Doing Good!


Hey there, how have you been?

I'm doing good, a bit anxious today, though!

It's my interview at a new company.

My pet cat died yesterday, street dogs were hungry.

A few weeks ago, I broke up with my boyfriend. It had been 4 long years.

My friend's angry with me. She has blocked me on Whats App and isn't picking my calls.

Her mother says, "she's sleeping."

I'm wondering if she's asleep from the past two days.

My mother is making me breakfast.

I'm about to leave for the interview.

Half an hour late, already.

It's cold outside. People are sleeping on the footpaths without sheets and blankets. A child comes to me and asks me to buy a balloon from him. I don't have any change and have to turn him down. He's sad.

The Sun too, is hiding behind those shady clouds. It may rain anytime. I haven't brought any umbrella.

There's a friend of mine in this hospital, I just passed by. He's in a coma since 2 years. I miss him, sometimes.

The cab driver looks upset. His eyes are red and swollen. On asking, he tells me how he couldn't go to see his sick mother, for there's no one to earn in his family except him.

It's dark and spitting a little already. I'm feeling so much now. It's a weird feeling, there's a lot going on. But I'm doing good.

There are two people fighting over something, verbally abusing each other, outside the office building. A dog is passing through the small crowd gathered, scared.

I'm scared too. I'm late. I have to run. I'll talk to you later.

Wait, did I tell you that I lost my cat 'Calm' yesterday? The street dogs attacked her.

Anyways, I'll get through this. I'll hangout with my friend a few times and I'll be over it. But my friend is sleeping from the past two days.

No, it's okay. I'm doing good, I guess.

I'll talk to you later.
