That was so wonderful. Sometimes that's how I feel when people complain about my work. Especially when they tell me to stop writing the horror. It's frustrating, because people who influence me constantly tell me to write cuter, less violent things, but it's really hard some days. I'm not trying to focus on the difficult times in my life, but rather express them in the most positive way. Had I not started doing this and made it such a huge part of my life, I may have slaughtered someone's family at this point.
This calls for cake!

I'm not sure if I should be happy or terrified at that....
