Seems like for every good thing that happens, something bad has to balance it out.
Winter Break starts tomorrow. Can't exactly enjoy the typical relaxation school day that precedes, though, due to supposed gun and bomb threats toward my school (which, while I am going to go anyway due to various commitments and the fact that I don't want certain people to be left alone if things go south, I don't place any weight behind those.) I guess we'll see what happens.
Also found out today that the cousin of my one of my friends, was also the brother of another of my friends, died on Tuesday--only a year and a half after graduating high school. I have no idea what happened beyond the fact that it was some sort of at-home accident, but I feel terrible for both of them--neither has been at school since then, and I'm fairly good friends with both of them. I really don't know what to say or think, especially considering how this marks at least two tragedies so close to Christmas. :/
Then again, I suppose tragedies happen every day, even if I don't see or hear about them.
Opposite of that, though, today was fun--I went to Portland shortly after school ended for an AP Lit field trip and didn't get back until 10:40. Got a book on voice acting, ate delicious food, and I saw a hilarious play--and yet as soon as I got back into town, Josh's death and the stupid "end of the world gun threats" came back to the forefront of my mind.
So, you know, whatever. Today was fun, but I'm exhausted and starting to feel depressed, and all of these posts about how the world is going to end tomorrow aren't helping at all--regardless of whether or not they're jokes. So I'm going to just sleep and wait to see what gets thrown my way next.
