Burn Before Reading: A Carly Allen Story

Quote of the Day: 08.08.17

My childhood was not a Winnie the Pooh childhood. I think my mom says it's because Winnie and all his friends were all too depressed and my mom didn't want us reading that. Us is me and my sister. What a shock that I have a sister. Who knew? Have I mentioned her before? Will I go back through my blog posts to see if I have? 100% no. It's what she would want.

Writing these blogs ahead of time is hard. I have nothing to say. Part of the charm of this blog is that I write cutesy anecdotal things about my day, but guys, I'm writing this all in the same day. It's impossible. Mission Impossible is based on this. This is truly the most impossible task anyone in the history of the entire world has ever been faced with.

On a less dramatic note, at the time I'm this, it is so unbearably hot in my apartment that I just stuck my head in the freezer for a good minute, but by the time you'll read this, I'll have an apartment with A.C. I'm almost there.

In case you were wondering, the packing situation has still not progressed. I'm discovering that I own an insane amount of backpacks. Like I've always scoffed at girls that owned a bunch of purses, but I am literally that girl. I am a purse girl. Sometimes I can't find things because they're in the wrong backpack. Sometimes I find receipts and mementos from years ago crushed at the bottom of a backpack. Y'know what they say in Batman. "You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become a villain." I'm the villain now.
