I thought I was upset, but I was just really hungry
Which makes me wonder how music would have changed if Morrissey had grown up next to a Chipotle.

this is a 100% accurate depiction of what I look like when I watch movies in theatres
Past conversations with my mother - 1992
7 year old me: Mom! Mom! Mom! MOM! I know what I want to be when I grow up! I want to be a gymnast in the Olympics!
Mom: Oh. Okay.
7 year old me: Um, yeah, so the lady said--the lady on TV said that I have to train every day at a gym. Where is the gym?
Mom: I think there's one in Lancaster, but Meghan, sweetie...gymnastics is really expensive.
7 year old me: So we can't afford it?
Mom: We can't afford it.
7 year old me: BUT IT'S MY DREAM!!!
Mom: Hey, Meghan, are you sure you really want to be a gymnast?
7 year old me: Yes. I want to be like Shannon Miller. I love her bangs.
Mom: Do you know how tall all those girls are?
7 year old me: Uh...what?
Mom: They're all like 5' foot tall. They are SHORT. You are tall. You are 7 and the same height as some of them and they are teenagers.
7 year old me: Well...I mean...I like being tall.
Mom: Okay, so say you do go to the gym for four-six hours a day for the rest of your life. So, we'd be waking up at 4 am to drive you to--
7 year old me: Ew. What? 4 am?
Mom: Well, you'd need your morning training and it's in Lancaster.
7 year old me: Um..well...uh...
Mom: Okay, so you work out four-six hours a day for the rest of your life. You work out so much that you suppress your hormones and don't get your period on time* and so you're short, built like a boy and never get boobs.
7 year old me: Wait. What are you talking about? I'll never get boobs?
Mom: Sweetie, have you ever heard these gymnasts talk? They're all squeaky voiced. They're little girls forever. It's how they're built and it's because of all the training. But if you still want to be a gymnast, we'll find a way-
7 year old me: NO THANK YOU I WANT BOOBS WHEN I GROW UP.
it’s like being in middle school all over again
