  1. 50 shades of blue and white  

    Since the end of days are near, the fuck I care if people judge me for liking sex? I'm tired of being sexually repressed just to play coy; pretending as though I don't crave cock so I can finally get a boyfriend has only backfired on me. Invariably, the end result has been a lose-lose situation for both parties. So fuck it. It's high-time to dismantle the self-sabotaging illusion that I don't crave cock just so another sexually-repressed girl doesn't criticize me. That said, anyone down for a massive fuck fest? Meet me on the steps of lowe in 30 minutes.

  2. Wait  

    Aren't the Monday events canceled, according to the University preparedness site?
