Diary of the 17th of April

by Anonymous | Score: 5650

Dear Diary.
Today was really hard.

First off, I fell asleep much earlier than I have before this week, at around 2:30 and I was supposed to get up at 11:30, 30 minutes before noon.

So I actually decided to do something about it and went to bed early.

I got mad and I kept saying "Thank you so fucking much" to my parents and my brother, but I put the bottles back up and took that time to gather myself up and get the mask back on.

I get in the car and I sit on my phone watching Tik Tok. We get there and we just buy stuff and recycle at the store.
