Awareness

Things I am currently aware of:

1. The gum in my mouth (Orbit Sweet Mint, as always)
2. My roommate and my friend talking a few feet away
3. The surprising comfort of my blue armchair
4. The brightness of my monitor against the dim room


And last, the overriding, dominating sensation: my stomach. How it folds over, how it touches my shirt, how it fills the space it's given like a gas. I know this feeling won't last forever, but it's just overwhelming.

Overwhelming like there's no tomorrow.
I;m in the same state at the moment. No matter what else I'm doing typing thinking watching this stomach is so...heavy? =\

Mine is too. But, that's because I just drank 12 oz of water in like 10 minutes. It comes and goes. Just keep that in mind.
