Why does everyone get divorced? :/ I can’t believe how many divorced couples I know at my (young young) age Really upsets me. :/
Joel sent me a link to a story about the shooting in Colorado this morning. First, total shock and horror. Just…horrific. I can’t really synthesize any thoughts on the situation.
