The past few weeks have been exhausting, demoralizing, and all-around shitty for many of us around the U.S., and although I haven’t been tuned in to international news lately, I’m sure the rest of the world as well. There have been all sorts of problems, both natural and man-made, in all manner of forms to hinder people from enjoying their lives. I’ve been doing what I can to deal with some horrendous acts which have taken place on my university campus as well as some of the more nationalized events. It’s draining, but it’s important, and thank God I’ve got a great support network in place. Also, I am extremely far from being the worst affected by any of it. I haven’t lost a home, a loved one, and maybe it’s naive but I don’t feel as unsafe as I know many people do. So like I said, how is everyone doing?
