I've been wearing a lot of leopard print lately. And my nails are painted red. And this isn't by coincidence... it's in my blood, y'all.

On weekends, there isn't… Continue reading A Little Bit About My Small Town College Life
I caught up with my best friend at dinner the other day. We have been on summer break (and I have been a high school graduate!) for about a month now, which was too long for us to go without hanging out. I showed her my new blog, and she asked me to make a… Continue reading Spread The Word To End The Word
Hey guys! Although I wanted to go straight into blogging about my life, I figured it was only fair I let you know about who I am first.
