I have a smart mouth, I have secrets, I have many scars because I have a history. Some people love me, some like me, and some people don't. I have done good in my life. I have done bad in my life. I go without makeup, or shaving my legs sometimes. I don't get dressed up half the time. I am random and I am silly. I will not pretend to be someone I am not. I am who I am, you can love me or not. But if I love you, I will do it with my whole heart, and I will make no apologies for the way I am. I AM ME."
