Yeah. And that's pretty much it.
Ugh, was having a headache just now due to the roadsickness upon hitch-hiking on Sleepy's car. Good thing the pain disappeared after I slept XD

O yeah, we were supposed to do caricatures of our friends and I chose a girl who was sitting way at the back without a partner lol. Aiyo, she's a new classmate ler. Rin's her name XD.
