I don’t know about you, but my phone is almost like an extension of myself.  I’ve customized it, bought an array of cases, and it’s always in reach.

There have been several things I’ve never understood life….why is it never as warm in my apartment as it is in my bed?  Why can’t I wear stripes with polka dots?  Why can’t I put ketchup on everything?  But what I really don’t understand is why anyone feels the need to justify what they do…… Continue reading Valentine’s Day: Something I’ll Never Understand
