Disheartened

I am so incredibly stressed out by waking up every morning in Bizarro World. The world where DJT is seriously the republican nominee and black men GOING ABOUT THEIR DAILY LIVES are killed day after day. Whenever I’m anxious, my coping … Continue reading

Apparently, I can’t knit either
