Wow, this is weird. I saw online that writing down your thoughts at the end of each day can be a helpful way to relieve stress, so here I am. But I don't know what to write about. I guess just how things are going?

Well, things are going pretty well! I just finished up my second week of online classes and I am loving them so much! I especially love my English course. The teacher is so nice! She gave me an extension on the first project after I said that I didn't have the time to finish it this week. Speaking of which, this week has been really hectic.

My dad and I got stuck on the side of the road for like 3 hours the other day! He was doing that thing where he's like "Don't worry, we've got plenty of gas!" But then we don't, and then we run out on the highway, haha. Everybody was being rude and refused to stop for us, so we were there for a long time. Oh, but it gets better! While we were waiting, a flock of birds was flying above us, and some of them really had to poop. Let's just say, Dad's car ended up with a new "paint" job before somebody actually stopped to help us, haha. I feel bad for laughing so much, but Dad laughed at some points too, which makes me feel a little less guilty about it.

I love Dad.

Although… I'm starting to wonder if Mom still loves Dad. This week has also been a little hectic cause Mom keeps taking off at random points in the day to go see her friends. That wouldn't be too bad, but she then comes back drunk super late at night with her friends and they trash the living room and kitchen. I've had to help Dad clean everything up at least two nights this week.

I've also heard them fighting much more often lately. Not how they normally have where it's more like just a disagreement, I mean fighting. I've never seen them like this before. Mom tells me that everything's okay but I don't entirely believe her, especially since it sounds like she's either starting all of the fights or is the cause of them. Dad doesn't wanna talk to me about it.

Now I feel guilty again about laughing earlier…

I'm gonna give Dad a big hug tomorrow morning and see if he wants to go out and do something together on his day off. I'll see if he wants to go to his favorite restaurant, Five Guys! That'll cheer him up for sure!

Alright, I'm at that point of tired where I'm struggling to stay focused on this, so I'm gonna call this one a day. I wonder if Future Me is reading this before she sleeps? If so, goodnight!

Sincerely,

Past Zyra
