This week has been difficult. There’s too much going on in the world and in this country, and someone I knew from both high school and college passed away at far too young of an age. Therefore, I don’t feel right doing another frivolous Friday Five about STUFF.

My heart goes out to the families and loved ones of my brilliant and goofy friend, as well as Anton Sterling, Philando Castile, and the five police officers killed during a peaceful protest in Dallas last night. We’re killing each other, and it has to stop. That’s all I can muster right about now.
