I have problems with staying awake. I’m sure that’s no surprise to a good 90% of people who read this site, but I think it’s worthwhile to mention it considering the day?s events.

This was definitely the best plate of sushi I’ve ever had. Now I look forward to a Middle Eastern dinner with my parents and my girlfriend. I better have some cheesecake first though.
