The last time I went to school (I’m not counting last year because, well, you know) was over four years ago. I graduated high school with a fancy diploma and a whole lot of emotional baggage. I felt like it was all a waste. I didn’t feel any smarter after graduating, form any close, lifetime…

OPINION  —  Earlier this semester, I wrote a piece on handling grief, and I briefly mentioned that anger can stem from it, but I did not address how to deal with it when it comes. Today, I will do just that.
