just because

If January was a person. I don’t think I’d like her so well. She is moody and unpredictable and has let me down again and again. Frankly, I find her to be mean. Cold, abrasive and calculating in her unkindness. But I’ve decided to give her another chance. Maybe we can actually be friends, after … More just because
