Had a cousin’s birthday zoom tonight. Be bad if I don’t go.

I get it. My aunt has just caught on to these things and loves to organize them for our family. But it’s exhausting for me given that I’m on Zoom 10 hours/day. I told my mom I wasn’t going to and she was fine with it but I feel kinda bad.
