My first boyfriend at age 14 died last night. I’m so sad for his family and children, but also in awe that our paths turned out so differently. I can’t mourn him publicly it would be weird. So I’ll do it here.

Confession #6732

The one type of person I can't stand, above all others, is a childish adult. Act your age. Manage your responsibilities without whining. Take accountability. Communicate maturely. It's not that hard.

Confession #27653

Confession #97235

Confession #46192
