I’ve never really had breakfast as every day was just a rush to school. There wasn’t much time to eat breakfast, given how I’m always snoozing my alarm clock away to catch more sleep.

However, ever since circuit breaker, breakfast became a routine for me. There was more time for me to wake up and have breakfast at home. After all, there was nowhere else I have to rush to.

You’re welcome.
