There's nothing really special to know. I'm from Royal Oak, a suburb outside of Detroit, where I live an average life of an 20 year-old gir with the addition of some stilettos, and dancing. During the academic school year I attend Western Michigan University, where I don't find many people there that I "mesh" with.

I used to like the 80's a lot more than I do currently, so I'm not really the epitome of 80s at all anymore. I'm trying to come back.

I'm online a lot, much to my dissapointment.

My rating

I love the smell of freshly sharpened pencils.

"Like everyone else, I had become a slave to the IKEA nesting instinct.
If I saw something like clever coffee table sin the shape of a yin and yang, I had to have it. I would flip through catalogs and wonder, "What kind of dining set defines me as a person?" We used to read pornography. Now it was the Horchow Collection. I had it all. Even the glass
dishes with tiny bubbles and imperfections, proof they were crafted by the honest, simple, hard-working indigenous peoples of wherever."

And if you're offering me diamonds and rust, I've already paid. . .
