The Navy Yard Shooting: Close To Home

Life-versary

I’m quickly approaching my _ _ th birthday which is oh so close to _ _. Ahhhh!  For some reason turning _ _ is really hard for me. Turning _ _ wasn’t nearly as difficult.

I should celebrate with that kick ass 80’s prom party that I wanted to have when I turned _ _, 5 years ago. I should be excited that I’m having a Life-versary thanks to my mom carrying me in her body for 9 months and transporting me into the world. Thanks mom, I truly do appreciate it! READ MORE
