To be fair, I haven’t put much thought into this task. I am currently drowning in assignments, class hand-in tasks and part-time work commitments. Though in between all that, I still find time to procrastinate and not complete what I need to do.

When him and his sister weren’t at the beach, he remembers … More Pixelated Television Memories
