When Life Gives You Lemons...

Carve a lem-o-lantern?

All I know is that life is crazy sometimes. It's unfair to an extent, it's hard almost all the time, and just when you think you've got it right, it can sneak up on you. But the most important thing to remember is to strive for what makes you happy.

I've got an agent interested in The Death of Me as long as I clean up a few tag issues, and I'm feeling confident for the first time in a while. 

Whew! After all that talking, I'm going to need a nice, tall, cold glass of...!

That's it! "When life gives you lemons, dance like no one's watching."

Heh. Knew I'd get it eventually.
