Batch #6

It’s been a while since my last batch post, but allow me to briefly share my thoughts on a few shows I’ve watched recently (or not so recently but never finished the posts for). There will be another batch soon, because I didn’t want this post to be too long and I’ve binged a lot of shows while I was pregnant and during the past year and I’d like to share my thoughts on at least a portion of them. Next month will be a game review, but I think there’ll be another batch post the month after that.

Amanchu!

Okay, so now that you’re all high schoolers, I hope you understand your responsibilities and study hard…

Fun makes might!
Fun makes right!
And fun is infinite!
Over the next three years, eat, sleep, and enjoy yourself to your heart’s content.
