Wow that's a good one.

I'll use that one.

You met five twins?!

I was like...

Somebody in my hall was a quadruple twin.

I've met sextuplets before and I'm like...that doesn't make sense to me.

Oooooh that's where the vegetarian is!



There's like a vegan burger

That's pretty cool


Let's just go there tomorrow

And so um the answer is yes and no.

Did you go to the practice rooms last night?

Did you practice last night?

I was so done that I just...

Did your wrist hurt?

My wrist hurt a little bit.

My wrists don't hurt my fingers hurt.

My fingers just hurt.

All the joints..?

Do you have any pain?

Nah Juney's a beast.

Yeah, like my wrists.

No pain it's just like...

My entire face just shut down

I was boutta sleep at the piano.

I wanna sleep on a desk or something or just on the floor but I'm scared...

We should tell him we'd rather practice.

You're allowed to play for a certain time.

Does he have like actual lessons?

I think it's any time; if you need help just go.

I thought it's just chilling...

We're going to do this for a month

Stay tuned.

Bro our wrists are going to hurt so much.

When my right hand bends, my wrist hurts.

You like shift your body to it?

Especially if it's like down there.

If you're down there for a while, though, your whole body is down there for a while.

Ok well his wrist hurts too so....

I'm like sliding the keys right now.

I might just get a slice of pizza to go...you know?

I've eaten straight cantaloupe for the last... three days.

Our RA told us not to eat the fruit because they're sketchy.

I ate that honeydew and it tasted like...not good.

I think they hold onto it for a whole week.

The blueberries are bad too.

Don't touch the fruit.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.
