Relay for Life

Last year Relay for Life in my community kind of sucked.

This year I wanted to head up the entire thing, but they already had a leader (who had no idea what Relay for Life was), so they gave me Entertainment.

Relay for Life is in 17 days.

I have a committee of 3 other people who are supposed to be helping me. One girl has a kid and was like, “OH! I’ll take all of the children’s activities! It’ll be great!”.

One guy was like, “let me figure out what movies to play in the wee hours, and do prizes for competitions”.

The other guy said, “let me co-chair. I’ll ease the stress and do shit you don’t want to do”.

They all had their assignments months ago.

I haven’t been able to get in touch with any of them recently.

I’m. Stressing. Out.

Especially with just losing Kylie to ovarian cancer…I want this event to be the best R4L that has ever been put on in this community.

I want people excited for 24 hours. I want them to love the event and to be passionate about the cause.

 

I can’t sleep. I’m so worried that everything is going to go wrong. My two bands (one of which the co-chair is supposed to be coordinating but WHO THE FUCK KNOWS) and 3 DJs are going to back out. The girl who’s supposed to be doing all of the children’s activities will never get back to me (I’ve called, e-mailed and texted constantly. I even hit her up on FB) so I won’t be able to give her the money budgeted for children’s shit and I’m going to have to do all of it like three days before.
AND WHAT THE FUCK ARE WE DOING FOR PRIZES?????? 2.5 WEEKS OUT. 2.5. NOTHING. JKLDFSJAKL;DJFKL;ASDJFKL;DSAJFKL;SJFLK;DSAJFKLAS;JFDKLAS;JFKADLS;JFDKLSAJFAKL;SJDFKLASDJFLKSAJFLKADSJFKLASJFKLASDJFKDLSAJFDKL;SADJKS

Cancer

Lost another one. It’s been a few years, but my middle school memories are full of her laughter.

She taught me the word “piss”. I said it when I got home from the youth group retreat and my Mom slapped me across the face.

Maybe if I had kept touch with her I would believe in a kind and loving God, but how can I when he takes all the best people?

If you’re going to take them, God, take them early. Early enough that only their families truly feel it. If they’re good enough to not feel the pain of growing up, don’t force that on them.

At leat she went quickly. Diagnosed, and dead a week later.
