As depressing as this week of posts may have been, I’m still optimistic about relationships–that in general they can be good, that I will learn more and more from them (Lesson 1: No crazies. Lesson 2: Make them be nice to you.), and that, if they do turn out terribly at the very least I will have more material for the novel.
I remain optimistic about candy, too.

So let’s all take this picture to heart–it’s not so bad.
