I don’t know what happened but somehow I’ve lost entirely all of my chill this week and it’s just awful. I’ve never lost this much chill at once. It’s terrible. I don’t even know what to do! It’s like a constant feeling of dread? Y’all, I don’t know. I just want my chill so bad. I hope you are so chilled, reader.
