Those AP tests are hard. Our local high school lets everyone into the classes knowing that most won't pass the test. I can my kids do dual credits at the local junior college instead.

Congratulations on your graduation from therapy. I'm just starting out a therapeutic journey myself. Three sessions down, up to an infinite number to go.

I loved The Fault In Our Stars. It broke my heart in the best possible way.
