"I woke up Wednesday morning feeling...what's the word? Is there a word? I'm not sure there is a word to describe it. Tuesday night, I was in shock. I was angry. I was devastated. In 16 years I have never felt these feelings after an election. I felt them in other facets of my life, … Continue reading Let Us March
In a world where everyone is just sooo busy this seems to be extremely accurate... There are very few people in my life who would meet me for dinner with a couple days' notice and not cancel at the last second. There are even fewer that would drop everything to be there when I desperately need them. … Continue reading Priorities
We, as humans, are not perfect. We are quite the opposite. Unfortunately for us, everyone expects perfection. Even if you think you don't, you do. People expect level-headed, rational, perfectly shaped, and proper individuals.
