Thursdays are awesome…namely because I am done with obligations at noon!
I spent the afternoon reading articles and working on school stuff with the freedom to stand up and stretch whenever I felt like it!

Yuck; If I had to make a list of the dumbest shows ever, The Simpsons would make the list…next to Hillbilly Handfishin’…
