    This Life Has Been A Test. If This Had Been An Actual Life, You Would Have Received Instructions On Where To Go And What To Do

    The High And Then The Low

    In my last story, I was content, maybe not happy, but slightly content with the idea that everything will work out eventually. I felt confident. But now I'm just as sad as I was before. I can't talk to people, or be emotional about the end of the school year and our oldest...
