If I and My Cousins are Superheroes: Chapter 1, Page 7
I am slightly irritated. I am starting this movement to wake up at exactly 5:00 am every day. I feel frustrated and defeated. But I cannot be petty. There are still many things to do. I cannot give up just because of a little mishap. I need to get going.

I open a box of Koko Krunch. It is not purely chocolate cereals. It has a mix-in. The mix-ins is caramel. I use Ovaltine chocolate drink for my cereals, instead of milk. It tastes fine. I like sweets.
I type ‘writing a novel’ in Google search bar. I am first welcomed by a seven-item excerpt list from writersdigest.com. I click its link. The title of the article is How to Write a Novel: 7 Tips Everyone Can Use by Chuck Sambuchino dated May 22, 2013.

The color of his title and credit box has red and gold, making me remember Chinese New Year.
