I hope when I’m 56 years old I am this pretty and I have a kick ass body from doing yoga, just like her. Srsly, she’s a babe.
i miss reading letters
since childhood I have been afraid of loud noises. It’s called ligyrophobia. I used to plug my ears during fireworks, but then stopped as I got older for fear of ridicule. I am afraid of thunder, but not lightning.
