a series: questions you wish you were asked


how are you feeling today?

i feel okay. i've been thinking a lot.

what's been on your mind? i remember you mentioned your mom visiting soon, last week.

yes. she postponed, but that's okay. i would be busy anyway.

(i hear a scream outside. i'm told it's a form of therapy.)

oh, okay. how does that work?

it's a way of decompressing. similar to tensing then releasing your muscles one by one.


(we circle back to my initial admission.)

so, you say you've been thinking a lot?


about what?

hm, school mostly. i'm worried about winter break and how i'll handle not being busy.

you say you don't like being busy, though.


so, which one is it?
