Today sucked. Today was a crappy, CRAPPY, shittastic Monday.
All the terribleness in Iran (i can't even begin to discuss the magnitude of this one). Then the DC metro crash. And now Jon and Kate divorcing.
I know the last seems like stupid celebrity gossip, but it's the one that *really* hit home for me. I don't know why, i haven't seen their show in ages. But i love those little kids. Those kids are the reason i got through the awful summer of BAR studying last year. The only pleasure activity i allowed myself was watching episode after episode of Jon and Kate Plus Eight. It was like a summer 2008 marathon or something.
Anyway, there's nothing more to say. Except that i'm sad. I'm sad for the kids. I'm sad for Jon. I'm not really sad for Kate because honestly, i kind of agree with everyone else who thinks she's become a monster.
Poor kids... Alexis, Hannah, Leah, Joel, Aidan, and Colin. Mady and Cara. Those kids' lives are going to be screwed up, there's no doubt about it. And i can't even imagine how they'll explain this one to them. Didn't they just have a 2nd wedding? Didn't they say, "We're doing this so that you guys can see Mommy and Daddy are married and are going to stay married forever"?
I'm not a child of divorce. I have no idea what that feels like. And even though the divorce rate is something obscene, it still never fails to shake me to my very core when parents with children call it quits.
WHY AM I SO ANGRY AND UPSET BY THIS??
Sigh i need to go to bed.
