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).

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

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