panic

I am kind of freaking out about how much information I post on this blog, but I can’t really come up with a logical reason for why I should be.
At this point, it is not so much that I am afraid people are going to find out these things about me (okay, maybe there are [...]

A brown turtleneck

I went online to buy this brown turtleneck that was on sale for $25.90.
