That one sober friend in a group of drunks

 

My year in England has been exceptional so far, except the occasional speed bumps like getting 58 marks on “certain” pieces of work. Or a random kid yelling profanities at me thinking I’m Chinese, which to be fair didn’t really upset me. Or the few times the CFJ has been closed when I wanted to get work done, and no amount of crying to the security guard would open it.
