Girl. You are a passionate mess (I should know). Have fun and do what you want. You are young and dramatic. Do what makes you feel good as long as it is safe for you.

I hope other people can give you better advice than me. You are so overwhelmed! I am really sorry. Try not to beat yourself up over everything. I find it… » 1/27/14 7:01pm 1/27/14 7:01pm
