I believe in service to others but I believe in going to bed to watch reality tv more
every time I post on Insta I feel like I’ve just committed a war crime
no you are hiding in a bathroom at a potluck
I just want cheese and more mimosa and to go home 
Taylor swift is my safe space
betray yourself LAST u silly bitch !!! what are yah doing pal
my gender identity is chandler in s1 friends
i think if I was an animal I’d be a chinchilla bc they always shaking and afraid
thank u codeine for letting me live my life 4 the night I do feel a bit like Cinderella! love u

nonbinary but also sometimes all I crave is to be a Victorian woman receiving & writing steamy letters by candlelight to a suitor who is Not Suitable but I will eventually run off to the countryside with anyway
you have to laugh 
you have to cry
you have do it all again (there’s nothing left for you)
