- When I was 7 years old I religiously listened to the radio for 60s/70s tunes, wore bell bottoms, and swore I was going to become a flower child.
- I was 12 and happened across the AMC channel. It rocked my 12 year old mind.
- I was a huge Courtney Love fan when I was 13 & was also a teenage feminist. Most boys were intimidated by that fact.
- I hate summer time because it means I have to shave my legs ever day
- one summer I wore the same baggy striped sweater everyday, so much so, that my family threatened to burn it
- I also had one of my classic hideously ugly sweaters banned form my english class ...
