Two years in a row now, I have lost someone I cared about shortly after my birthday.
Last year, it was the sister that I was closest to.
This year, it is a friend.
Everyone is now on notice:
Absolutely NO ONE within my circle of friends, family, and loved ones is allowed to die in the month of December ever again.
If you feel that you absolutely must go, please, at least wait until January.
