Athleta is having their Friends and Family event and I have some coupons! It is from now until September 6th, 30% off your purchase. If you would like one send me an ask with your e-mail address (and please be following me).
Check out the website to see if there is anything you want/need Athleta.com or if you are lucky enough to live by a store you can use it there too.
Finally went to Athleta yesterday. My wallet is fucked.
My thoughts go out to everyone involved in anyway with the shootings this morning. My privacy is really important to me on this blog. While I have mentioned that I live in Colorado before, I will not give out much information on my connections to the event. I will say that I am safe and as far as I know all of my friends and family are safe. Unfortunately I learned with Columbine that even if you don’t know anyone who was shot you eventually find out that you have multiple connections to them and that they aren’t any different than yourself and your loved ones. It easily could be any of us. I am thankful I wasn’t there and that my loved ones were not but I can not imagine what it is like for the people who can’t say the same thing.
I have been watching a ton of news and while it is all great coverage I am once again said that no mention has been made that the person who did this also deserves some love and kindness. Obviously what he did was not ok in any way but clearly something is going on with him that none of us understand. No one does something like this because they are of sound mind. He has a problem and while we all don’t agree with the way his issues manifested, I think we should respect that something made him snap and it was most likely because of a lot of pain in his life. That being said if you ever have any feelings that make you want to hurt someone else I encourage you to get help. It is not something to be embarrassed about. If you can not find the help you need keep looking! Someone will help you. I am always here to talk if you need it.
