Sometimes I wonder if my life is too boring to write about, but then I remember it probably is and don’t really care either way. I’m happy on the couch with my dogs, watching the Twilight series for the 796 time, and cackling out loud to dumb ass memes that relate to me more than any human does.

There’s a constant stream-of-consciousness movie reel running in my mind at all time.

I think I’m pretty funny.

My nickname is Devil Woman.

I leave my shoes everywhere.
