“It's amazing--my parents call everything a discussion.

“Instead of agonizing about the things you can't change, why don't you try working on the things you can change”
Jordan Sonnenblick, Drums, Girls & Dangerous Pie

Why does everybody in my family talk in these dramatic CAPITAL LETTERS all the time? Why am I the only calm one?”
