Emotional level: 7 Mental level: 7 TODAY I LEARNED: The coldest temperature ever recorded was -144 degrees Fahrenheit.   I had a breakdown yesterday.

Emotional level: 7 Mental level: 7 TODAY I LEARNED: Oranges were originally green!   I’m feeling better today but, something has been on my mind. The concept of entitled people is a wide one. Why do they feel the need to constantly insist they are owed this and that? I’m sure it all comes from…
