I would like to take a brief reprieve from the usual social media interactions we have (you, tagging me in memes about sisterhood and/or spiders; and me, begging you to, just once, proofread your posts BEFORE you post them) to tell you (and everyone else who saw a pic collage in their newsfeed and has now stopped to read this) something I should tell you every day- I am proud of you. And I love you so much, it makes me sick. Even though you often literally make me feel like I'm taking crazy pills, this year has been a super important one for you- and next year only looks bigger and better! Karol, you are a genuinely good human being. Don't ever let anyone tell you otherwise (and they will, for unfortunately, good human beings are somewhat of a rarity nowadays). Adulting is wicked hard, Kid. Keep your head up.
