RE: Ranting corner
It's weird cause he mentioned it on whim when I picked him up at school. He wanted to get a gift card for one his friends at the theater cause they're having some sort of deal. So I figured we had time before the younger son (with autism) got home from school (like 90 minutes or so and we live like two minutes away). So, I find a great parking place...we walk in get a few feet from the theater and I hear these weird popping sounds and people screaming.

I froze for a couple seconds as it began to sink in....and just turned around, grabbed him by the arm...and we just ran out the same door we came in. He tried to call 911 but he couldn't get his phone to connect. We were just out of the parking lot, when we heard sirens. We got home and turned on the tv. I was crying....it's like we were JUST there!

If we'd gotten there earlier it could have been bad....any later and we wouldn't have gotten near the place. It's just weird.

Heard the gunman took his own life. That pisses me off too.

What really really pisses me off....a few months ago a military reservist we jogging through our neighborhood in a full pack, carrying a training rifle (it was bright orange and looked like a long plastic triangle...35 people called the police saying there was a guy dressed in fatigues carrying a gun and my son's school went on lockdown for an hour. The guy was found by our house....we don't really live by the school -- but we're close enough to generate a lockdown but people reported he was going toward the school and was a block away -- that's a physical impossibility unless he had transporter technology Smile

Fast forward to today....this guy jogged (according to the news reports) through the parking lot carrying a semi-automatic rifle (people said they saw him) and i guess through Macy's wearing a big black coat (a woman claimed she walked right passed him on her way out), body armor and a hockey mask...and no one says a fucking thing until shots are fired???

Seriously???
(ok -- maybe someone did call 911, but the police department is like 2 blocks away (on Sunnybrook) had someone called they should have been driving up as we were leaving).

I doubt any of my rantings are making much sense...I'm still really shaken and not thinking clear.

Reading the Great Gatsby in my English class.
What the hell! Why did Gatsby have to die?! He didn't even do anything to deserve it. It was Tom and Daisy's fault. I liked Gatsby, a lot actually. I don't even want to finish the book now. RIP GATSBY

It sounds like a failure to plan adequately. Drinking Beverage

Son, the whole day has been one big failure to plan.

First I go to university, come back, shit now I gotta go to the parking ticket place so I go back into town, come back, then it's oh shit I'm out of food so I go back into town again to the super market and come back and then it was oh shit now I'm out of vanilla coke so I had to go back into town and get some...
Could have all been done in one swift move after uni.

RE: Ranting corner
It just occurred to me that this is the longest I have ever been away from home.
Must be about 9 or 10months.

RE: Ranting corner
Who am I going to be when he leaves?
How will I hold myself together?
What if I can't control myself?
Will people even recognize me, once the depression settles in?
My heart, will it break or will it grow stronger?
What if I don't know what to do and I do something stupid?
What if I'm no longer.. me?
