It’s 5:15 pm on Good Friday and I have no plans for making dinner.

I have no plans for making dinner tomorrow either but my mom is feeding us Easter dinner so there’s that to look forward to.

(Un)happiness

Look. I don’t like it but I do use it occasionally, this block editor Gutenberg thing. Only because they’re going to punish us more later, when they remove the other options indefinitely.
