    Idk I just feel underappreciated cuz I keep

    doing behind the scenes stuff. Everyone is so happy talking and eating stuff after they're done writing and here I am with a few other people typing and editing letters to organizations. Nobody notices us and it's sad cuz it's as if we're invisible
