baffled

TQC, today a toddler died after being left in the car all day. The dad was supposed to drop the baby off at daycare, but forgot...left the kid in the car from 8:30 to 4:00 while he was at work.

I get that you wind up with a lot on your mind/distractions, the kid's asleep/hella quiet, or your routine changes (eg. mama normally drops off), but f'in really? It seems to happen to all types of people, and Georgia did a campaign about that very fact--but I just don't understand. How the hell do you forget your child is in the car?!

DK/DC/no kiddos: what does your hair look like at this very moment?

Sad at night; Seattle

1. I have generalized anxiety but I am on antidepressants (Cymbalta) and I have gotten massively better since I have began taking them a year ago. My hormonal birth control has also seemed to help my anxiety, and now I don't have this terrible one week before my period where I just feel so depressed and lose my shit for 7 days. However, at nights, I am so sensitive, like a child. I cry over almost nothing, like accidentally losing something I just wrote, or my boyfriend making a bad joke. I get anxious over irrational things, like I used to do all the time before I started my medication, and I get frustrated easier. What is wrong with me at night? Why do I cry so easily? I consider myself pretty happy, but I cry 2 or three times a week at night, and it makes me think that maybe I am secretly miserable.
How do I stop crying and control my feelings in a more mature way??

TL/DR: How many times do you cry per week? Per month?

2. I am moving to Seattle in September, but now I am living in Australia and can't go to the city until a week before my graduate school classes start. Have you ever booked an apartment without first seeing it? Any advice on picking a place by simply looking at pictures over the internet and talking to relators? For those of you who live/have lived in Seattle, how bad are the rain/cloudy skies, really? I am kind of worried the greyness will make me really gloomy.

Tomodachi Life/Amazon

Does anyone here have 'Tomodachi Life' for the 3DS? Do you like it? I'm curious but don't think it's worth the full price, but I have a £25 amazon giftcard which means I can get it for about £5. I love The Sims and Animal Crossing series and people say it's similar to them, but I'm scared I'll buy it, play it for five minutes and then be bored of it.

DK/DC If you were given a £25 (42 USD/31 EUR) Amazon giftcard, what would you spent it on?
