Just what every little girl dreams of, right? A little over a year ago I was treated to my very own apocalypse, and I have survived to tell the tale, so far. The following are some of the highlights – if they can be called that – of my journey of soul-shattering destruction, unlikely survival, and rebuilding in the aftermath.
