(don’t ask) Today we spent some of that time giggling at the YouTube channel “Cooking with Dog”.  I began watching more and more of the videos ... Read More

Now men have somewhere to go when they need to verify their mistakes (hey guess what, you're always 100 percent wrong!), build an apology video (featuring every girl's favorite things--hearts, chocolate chip cookies and cats), and sensitize their vocabulary (get cracking boys, you're going to need to come up with more ...

I failed my driving test, not for the last time. I was in love with Chris Carrabba from Dashboard Confessional.
