hey, stop putting shit in the coffee!

I’ve developed a bad habit of staying up way too late, even on school nights, and subsequently, have been super tired most of the week.

Tomorrow I’m having dinner with another cousin, and possibly also playing some more phone tag with the guy whose daughters I’m supposed to be tutoring/conversing with. I called, left a message (ughhh, I hate leaving messages, I always end up blathering on and on and sounding like a total dork), and  ...
