for all of those on the east coast who are or may be affected by hurricane irene, my heart goes out to you.
i came home from a shitty dance last night, silently complaining about how i didn’t really have that much fun, to a heartbreaking broadcast live from…CNN? about hurricane irene. i was sort of tired, it being 11PM, but i heard that it’s a massive shitstorm in north carolina, and new york is in grave danger. it made me completely realize that some things in life are more important than others, and that i shouldn’t be complaining about a sucky dance while there are people who might be losing their lives as i write this now :x
i have friends on the east coast so my heart goes out to you, please be safe and evacuate as instructed. i hope this ends peacefully and quickly, i know that many people are already dead or injured from the other events such as the storms etc, so please, PLEASE be safe.
i really do wish that there was something i could do to help, but instead i’m sitting at home in california completely helpless while the sun shines through my window like there’s nothing wrong in the universe.
i also know that the people who are being affected probably won’t be reading this, as they’re going to be evacuating and staying with people that they love, but i felt like it was worth mentioning.
something is terribly wrong and i’m very scared :(
anyway please stay safe, and hopefully it’ll be over soon.
