I don't know. Maybe it's just me. I feel a bit more lonely after looking at this. But it's done so well nonetheless.

Wooooah I love this atmosphere!!! It'd feel so wonderful after a good night's sleep and you don't have work. You'll just peacefully and slowly prepare your breakfast, gaze at the beautiful morning outside while sipping your coffee. Turn your TV on in its soft volume and text your friends about your meeting. Waaaaaaahhhh I waaaaant! <3

I like how this can be interpreted both as "doors closing slowly" and "doors just started opening". (As well as, doors almost closed/slightly opened) Is she depressed, but she can still see the light? (Hence the light is on her eyes) Or is she really disturbed by the light as she's trying to take a rest? It can be both.
