I was supposed to meet my friends up north this weekend for a trip. Had to hold it off until tomorrow.
My dad, first, got an electrical second degree burn on his fingers, he was trying to connect batteries or something and he had his metal wedding ring on. He was lucky he got it off when he did, it would have gone deeper than second degree. He and am went to urgent care and he returned fine.
Later, he told me I'm not allowed to go outside by myself for a while because of the dead teenage girl incident. I don't care that I'm not allowed outside for a while, cuz that's some scary shit, man. I can't imagine what that family is going through right now. The only part that made me pissed about it was that everyone thinks that just because I'm female means that I'm a ditsy, weak, little vulnerable idiot. I hate it more than anything. I am NOT weak, I am NOT ditsy, and I am NOT anything like a normal girl. I'm not saying that this girl was killed because she was stupid, that's not it at all. She was just walking her dog like any normal person. What I hate is it feels sexist to know that a girl is considered a target. Fuck that, I'm nothing close to vulnerable.
I think the worst and scariest part about this though, brace yourselves for this, it gets scary, and fuckin deep. My dad's mother's friend, one if her best friends, her husband shot himself. Right in the head. My grandma called my dad this late at night, scaring us all. We don't know why he did it. I think my dad said he's still alive, and if he is he messed himself up pretty bad. That kinda made me realize, just how serious a suicide threat is. But this was more than a threat, he actually went and did it. His wife found him and I think she was the one who called 911.
Shitty and scary weak.
Im hoping for the best it'll get better.
i don't need any sympathy, I'm perfectly fine, I just thought that the events of today would be a little interesting and different to read about. And something important for me to remember later on.
