We stopped in St. Louis for literally no more than 24 minutes, walked two blocks away to the Gateway Arch, and someone broke into our moving van and stole a lot of my things. They stole my laptop with pictures of my grandparents I will never get back, my iPad mini, beats headphones, monster speakers, my school books with my final exam for criminology that is due in a few weeks, clothes, jewelry, makeup, the list goes on and on. Above all of this, they stole my skates. The one thing and only reason I'm in Colorado right now.
