Writing

To be honest, the thing that really interests me is – shopping. Maybe you would think I’m too material comforts, but I’m not. Shopping refreshes your life. New things replace old things, and few of old things/only a little lasts, from them you would know what’s you really like. Shopping give you a chance to build your own memory, almost all my memories are related with a scent, a kind of food, a coat, etc. Select a thing from variety is from your hobbit, but all of them crates you. And, if I earn money but not to expense, I would feel lost my balance in life.
