"I don't know if these were my boyfriend's exact words, but we were sitting in Denny's and he basically said that some people just aren't cut out for creating change or influencing people on a large scale... but I am. It was the most encouraging thing I've ever heard. I ♥ him. Whee.
"P.S. I really hope this doesn't come off as arrogant or anything, I'm not trying to say I'm like amazing or anything, it was just really nice to hear someone say that I could do the things I've dreamed of. :) P.P.S. I tried the shot with pants on first, and the shot looked cluttered and uncomfortable. So I took them off. So... um... hope you don't mind.
