I was not myself yesterday, as my late night post revealed. I’m normally an eternal optimist. If not optimist, an optimistic realist anyway. I try not to let the “shittier” aspects of life get me down, but sometimes…

It’s not anything at all involving Em, and we are tight as. Sometimes you just need another person to talk to though. I was really needing that yesterday.
