By   /  April 29, 2014  /  2014 Spring, Archives, Rant  /  Comments Off

I’m annoyed that I have too many things to complain about that I couldn’t find one thing to rant about. But I guess one thing to highlight is how I’ll drop you like a hotcake if you think it’s OK to hang out with my ex after I considered you a best friend. How is […]
