Pandora’s Box

Today she realized she could be a burden to someone else, because you told her she would one day be a bother to the ones she loved.

The Worst Things When Hungover

I have found it- the worst thing for a hangover.It’s when someone bursts into your bedroom at 7 am,and proceeds to flip all your lights on.Then at 7 pm-at-a-party volume, tells you all about his previous day.Then immediately proceeds to ask you to make decisions about upcoming travel plans, at this ungodly hour.All the while...
