After what’s felt like a never ending week, I’ve spent most of today in bed, watching Ironfist on Netflix. Sadly there’s been no chill, and I’ve been unbelievably hungry. I’ve […]
Not that I can complain. And really I’m not. I got out, and I’m glad Lewis has too, but selfishly, I don’t really want him to go. I should back […]
