i have analytics on all of my social media platforms

 

i need you

to like me

so i can

like me

 

online validation

is a cruel mistress

but she’s one

i like to fuck

everyday

 

 

 

oh no baby what is you doing

 

one time this girl

that i knew said

that her favorite

essential oils

were vanilla,

cappuccino

& cupcake

 

 

 

mason ramsey gave me secondhand embarrassment in the cutest way

 

and i don’t know

what i’d dooooooo

 

if i had to see

someone yodeling

in walmart

like what kind of

reaction do you

have for something

like that
