I know you see this. You self-absorbed, shallow jerk.
May I remind you, that I am a strong, beautiful,
LAVENDER SCENTED woman who WOULD have a graduate degree if she hadn’t moved
across the country to follow a heartless man-boy who dumped her
and now won’t even text her back back. Thanks for nothin’...MOTHERFUCKER! SEND!!

ALI
AND WAIT ‘TIL YOU TURN ON THE LIGHT
THEN I’LL CHECK JUST TO SEE YOU’RE ALL RIGHT
AND IF YOU ASKED ME TO STAY, I JUST MIGHT

BACK-UPS
SATURDAY NIGHT!
