Typing away at my desk, I feel rather melancholic. There is absolutely no music playing in the background, because nobody switched on the radio. The only sounds that echo around the room are the people laughing, talking and the taps on my keyboard whilst I type this post. It feels rather weird to be surrounded by people, with noise ringing in my ears, but I feel no connection to it.

All I see are shared posts – videos and articles. I can’t be bothered to click ‘Read More’ because the contents are somewhat similar. I head towards my email located in a tab on Google Chrome, and saw many things that needed follow-up.
Again, I feel no compulsion to reply those emails. (Sorry)

Ah well, the man left.
It’s truly quiet.
