Things that will definitely happen tomorrow
I will get my permit, two months after my 15-year-old sister. I will rejoice.
So bored that I just took a half-hour walk around my neighborhood alone, because I wanted the thrill of putting myself in some negligible degree of danger.
Jacqui'm a mess
I just saw my sister off at the airport for her 8 weeks in Nicaragua. She’s aboutta have an awesome summer. As soon as I got in the car and my parents starting being fools again I wanted someone to turn to and shake my head. This summer is gonna be weird. Who am I gonna talk to about all the little things that we notice about people that no one else cares about (or the things that I...

Ten weeks just seems like the perfect amount of time for self-improvement goals. No homework, no 12-hour...

Mike Lacher: I'm Comic Sans, Asshole →
Listen up. I know the shit you’ve been saying behind my back. You think I’m stupid. You think I’m immature. You think I’m a malformed, pathetic excuse for a font. Well think again, nerdhole, because I’m Comic Sans, and I’m the best thing to happen to typography since Johannes fucking Gutenberg. You don’t like that your coworker used me on that note about...

asterisksforvowels: -from Matthew Klam’s essay “Experiencing Ecstasy.” Klam’s essay makes Ecstasy sound, quite frankly, amazing. According to him, it can help you get through the rough patches in your first few years of independence, and dropped instantly. Yes, he discusses worst case scenarios—Kyle (who he portrays as vaguely addicted and equally vaguely in denial) but the number of cautionary...
I just ate a piña colada cupcake.
I miss dat country. So much that I don’t even mind Jack’s gringoish voice in the background.
