Quick life update: these are a few remains from not one, but two home invasions that my roommates and I have maliciously fallen victim to in the last week. I won’t go into details, but I will say that this week’s events have left me utterly shocked and confused. As a person who likes to see the best in others, I breaks my heart to think that people actually treat others this way. It’s been a terrifying experience that I wouldn’t wish on anyone. I’m spending the next week moving into my new apartment, so I apologize if I’m being a stranger! Please send good vibes my way!
