Hey There Friend

The world is a messy place- I think. Wait, yeah I'm getting reports in that it is in fact a mess. But you don't have to be. So hold onto anything positive that you find. 
Because when life hands you lemonade-- spend years researching chemistry and alchemy to learn how to deconstruct the lemonade and extract the lemon DNA from the liquid and grow your own lemons because WHY WOULD LIFE JUST GIVE YOU THE LEMONADE FIRST? LEMONS!!!!
Some good things come easy. Enjoy them.

Enjoy your lunch.

Still haven't watched it all. But I love it... She just asked if the unshucked corn was cooked. I love this video.
