I felt so hopeful and excited to share with them that I was preapproved by a lender (an important step). My mother seemed annoyed and my father immediately began rattling off every possible thing that can go wrong. He critiqued the home, the cost, down payment, you name it.

Anyone notice their health go to shit after entering the ad industry? I’ve been getting better at taking care of myself, but can’t help to think I need to be doing more as I enter my 30s.
Trump’s efforts to suppress COVID19 info and rush our untested vaccines continues. His and Putin’s lackey, Caputo is now accusing CDC scientists of sedition.

Now his job is to sabotage the information coming out of CDC. Officially we have ~195k confirmed deaths but the number of excess deaths is over 250k (per Economist & NYT)
