we’re just a bunch of kids, trying to save the town, and we’re scared but we’re strong and we have each other.

Every kid dreams of being a superhero, having powers, saving people — but no kid thinks about what it’s like when you’re a hero and you’re not saving people. Truth is, not much else changes. You still hurt, you still love… you still wish, and hope, and fear things… and you still need people to help you with all of it. In some ways, that’s the best part.

tomorrow in a nutshell

  • wake up at 4:30am
  • leave house by 5:15am
  • make a Starbucks run
  • clock in at work at 7:00am
  • work till 5:00pm
  • drive over to the Staples Center
  • LA Kings game at 7:30pm
  • hopefully get out of game before 10:00pm (thus avoiding the shit show of traffic)
  • get home by 11:00pm

and on top of that this weekend is going to be a scheudling clusterfuck as well, on Saturday alone I need to get my windshield replaced (and they can show up anywhere between 8:00am - 1:00pm), birthday get together for my aunt who’s flying in from Florida, birthday get together for one of my co-workers (which will be all the way over in Anaheim at downtown Disney), AND my supervisor just asked me today if I could work on Saturday from 7:00am - 3:00pm and to see if I can get the windshield repair people to fix it there instead
