    I'm at my mum's Christmas lunch with her work

    friends and I feel really awkward. There are some other kids but they're all younger than me. So I'm on my phone being antisocial.

    I'm now in the car with my dad's driver he's

    going to drop me off at my workplace. He's cute and pretty much older than me, so I get a bit shy and idk what to say or ask anymore lol. More awkward is when we both wanted to turn on the radio. There's still half an hour before he could drop me off. 😳

    I managed to split my lip in my sleep.

    I didn't realize until I went into the bathroom to brush my teeth, and noticed dried blood on my chin and right side of my face. Now it kinda hurts ;-; I don't like it.
