Publication date: May 16th 2017

There comes a time when you just have to put on some mascara and pull yourself together. And I know that, but I have very little experience with the fake it till you make it philosophy.


When I relax against his legs, my blood speeds up, rushing to inform the rest of my body: we’re touching! We’re touching!
I did not use to be such an embarrassing person.

My favorite book by Emery Lord is still The Start of Me and You, but the friendship in this book just makes me smile and laugh so much.

Also, Happy Independence Day to those who celebrate.
