I feel like we don’t get enough sleep, so like we’re tired when we get to school so like we can’t think properly. Cause we have to travel far distances in the morning.

Me and my dad never really spent time together when I was little.

I just don’t feel like it was what I wanted.
I wanted to spend time with him.

He (my dad) would always hit us when did our homework. So, I didn’t want to go through that again.

I thought that I would like have to understand my own homework by myself.

I found it difficult. I still find it difficult.
