I’ve been through a lot these last few weeks and there just hasn’t been enough energy or will to sit and write and reflect or even try to make jokes about the State of Chaos that is my life. Tonight is the first night in weeks that I have been home before midnight and/or not gone to bed sad and lonely. So, there’s that!
I found this old picture of me (Kids Are People Too hoodie), my sister (orcas) and our friend Jenna (fashionably sporting the life-jacket UNDER the regular jacket.) I imagine the story behind this is that we are on the boat on a cold, Floridian night and I was probably dangling over the edge and got yelled at so as not to die a most horrible impaled-by-boat-propeller death and thus am extremely sad.
It seems silly now, what with all the hilariousness this photo brings about (I MEAN KIDS ARE PEOPLE, TOO COME ON! ORCAS! The saddest little face ever!) but I was probably genuinely so upset about getting in trouble. And so I think about the fact that I am genuinely so sad about a lot of things right now and I realize that perhaps I will look back on this time of my life years down the road and laugh about it as much as I am laughing at this picture right now.
