I'm here to pick a fight with 2nd place

whiskeybentandhellbound: Welp. So true.
I’ve been saying I’m going to visit friends in different cities, but while many have come to DC, I haven’t been to their new cities… So I’m making plans and buying tickets! June 10-12: NYC to visit this girl aka my freshman (and junior) year random roommate turned sorority sister turned hair twin turned I don’t even know anymore. We’ve already worked...
