“My younger brother killed himself when he was sixteen. He found my Dad’s old gun in the ceiling panels of the office. The strange thing is, when he came home from school that day, my grandmother was cooking in the kitchen, and he asked her to make him a plate. Then before she could finish, he was dead. So we wonder, maybe he was just playing with the gun and it accidentally went off. There wasn’t a note or anything. My biggest regret is that he’d recently asked me for money to sign up for Tae Kwon Do lessons. And I always gave him money when he asked. But this time I didn’t, because I was newly married and we were pinching pennies. I always wonder if he’d have learned something in those lessons that would have changed his view of life.”

This is so cool!
ehhh, like no brag but I’m one of the fastest readers I know, like I finish a 300 page book in an afternoon, like I can do a small-normal sized page in about 30 seconds. Like I read Catch 22 in a round trip plane ride. But just because you can read fast doesn’t mean you should. It’s like looking at a painting, you could spend 30 seconds looking at it, but why? You’re missing out on the art. Also super speed reading has proven to be worse for reading comprehension than regular reading.
I really want to put down in words all that’s happened the past few weeks in regards to prayer and everything but every time I try I get so nervous and it’s kinda like “well to begin I akdjddgshekskwlwslsjsbdns” and it could just be summed up with the Ecstasy of Saint Teresa. One of my favorite statues.
