Be My Valentine Playlist

Am I the only person who is disappointed when nothing magical happens at midnight on New Year’s Eve? It’s like I somehow think that life should have a gigantic reset button which automatically gets pushed when the ball drops at Time Square.

I just submitted a search to Amazon for iPhone cases and got like 2 million ones to choose from. Okay not 2 million, but 47, 692. What the heck is up with that!? Where do you even begin? I made it through like 250 before I wanted to bang my head on the table and […]
