IT’S 2013 AND I GUESS I’LL BE OPTIMISTIC ABOUT IT

Happy new year! I brought the new year in by myself, for the first time in my life. And it was kind of awesome so don’t feel sorry for me okay? While you were dancing your feet into swollen bruises, head pounding with too-loud dance music that you’d never choose to listen to yourself, eating […]
