10. I wonder what’s happening on Facebook. I wonder how my mum’s doing, I should really call her.

11. I’ve done an hour on this today, that’s enough. It’s important to have a good work-life balance.

12. As long as I make the introduction strong, that’ll make up for the rest of it. Probably.

I’ll just wow them with the introduction and hope they skim-read all the other words.

13. What am I even arguing here?

19. Need words. Any words. Please just write some words. Words words words.
