Cecilia, how are things going in your emotional life?

Have you snugglehugged anyone you like recently?

Have you seen the ocean, read any good books or comics, heard any
wonderful music, or seen any other beautiful or cool things, like
storms or fire or anime?

Here is a joke: A stressed person walked into a bar.  Luckily the long
rectangular bar was made of fluffy pillows!  They relaxed into the
fluffy pillows.  It's a pun on 'bar' =)

I am living with my parents right now and they buy fruit and keep a
fruit bowl stocked.  My mother loves flowers and has many around the
house, which she diligently waters.  Most of her flowers are gifts
