28. What is your favorite type of pie? (Or, is pie an acceptable replacement for cake?) Blueberry pie~ It has a tangy bitey taste. I like most fruits, but, in pie, a gentle fruit becomes too sweet and dull….

just a small thing before i go to bed
The recent few days, I had some really triggery times in the evening… I was fine in the morning but then, I would just get badly triggered before bed and have a bad night.

It’s really nice...
