My children were at home near South Knoll Elementary. While this was not around the corner from this incident, it was certainly too close to home for comfort. I made the call to keep the kids inside since the reports we were getting were not clear whether there was a gunman on the loose in the streets or really what was going on. All too soon we were given the shocking information. Several wounded, and 3 would die before the news was finally over for the day.

Today has turned into a very dark day for many here in Aggieland. It started for most of us as a normal Monday, yet lunchtime brought us reports of a gunman near campus. No details were available but many of us frantically called loved ones in this big, ‘small town’ to ensure they steered clear of the area.

The recent split of Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson has garnered all types of emotions and reactions across the world wide web. Many of them seem to be angry and directed at Kristen Stewart herself. I really am wondering why anyone seems surprised with any relationship in Hollywood seemingly doomed from the start.
It is certainly not worth front page daily news as to how each one of them is coping. How do you think they are coping? She’s ashamed that she was an idiot and let her still young hormones get the best of her and get caught in the process. He’s attempting to recover from the shock of finding out someone he loves betrayed him. Reverse it different ways and it pretty much sums up tons of relationships all over the world. Nothing new to see here, move along.

Daily mantra: Today is a day that I am wrapped in my Positivity Bubble. Nothing you can do or say will penetrate the membrane or touch me. I am immune to the drama and grumpiness of those around me. I will smile and shine my light upon those who are in the darkness, casting rays upon a path into the light. Like the lighthouse, I will be a beacon of warmth and friendship to those who are in need.
I cast out dark thoughts and focus on my dreams, taking one step closer to them every day. I call upon my positivity buddy to keep me focused on the path towards the bonfire of hope in the distance. Negativity and drama will bounce off the glass as I glow with the warmth of an undeniable lighthouse of confidence.
