WHY ARE YOU NOT IN ANY RELATIONSHIP? Because every boy gets on my nerves right now. I feel like it’s destiny because I’m saving myself for Mr. Right at the mansion!
WHAT MAKES YOU SICK? If a guy does stunts to make money, he’s an idiot. They are all showing off their designer clothes because most of the time they are probably fake anyway! Another case is when a boy runs to the train and the train leaves without him. There are also lunch boxes – just go to Tesco and get a meal deal!
