GODDAMMIT

A Bullseye game in the Yes & Know Invisible Ink book. The instructions read, "You are a field hockey referee and need to review the terminology before the first game of the season begins. Your goal is to uncover as many words as you can before time runs out. Fill in any space on the target. If a letter appears, choose a word with that letter and fill in the circle below it. However if you uncover a star, fill in a circle in the time box. Can you complete all the words before time runs out?" The completed game has five of the nine words completed, but four stars have been found and the Time Box is filled, so the game is over.

When you’re going through some stuff and you talk to someone and learn they’re going through even worse stuff

That doesn’t erase your own feelings. You shouldn’t be Not Sad because someone else is sadder
