Nobody Asked for This

Tumblr Post #14 (April 2017) So I’ve been in a weird place for the past few weeks regarding my relationship with this novel.

No Cheetos Allowed

Tumblr Post #6 (June 2016) Perhaps it’s a testament to my character that I try my best not to hurt anyone’s feelings or intentionally make someone upset to the point of tears. Why? Because that makes me feel like a pretty crappy human being. And I don’t know about you, but I have my own […]
