Date: Easter Sunday. 17th of April, 2022.
Happy Easter to all who celebrate! 🎉 Today was OK. I actually slept for part of it. I have been out and about all these while and I never really got the time to rest. As soon as I felt sleepy, I gave in to it because I knew I needed it. I also ate a lot and spent time with my family. It was a stress free Easter and I'm happy about that. I feel relaxed.
