 What redeems you as a human being? I don’t eat other people’s snacks without asking, I am a very quiet pooper, and it only took me ~10 minutes to answer this question.

Beverage of choice: Fermenting grapes.

Guilty pleasure song: I don’t feel guilty about my pleasures. “Voulez-vous danser” is a classic.

Historical Hottie: Buster Keaton! What a dreamboat.

I woke up like dis

Your nightmare date in seven words or fewer: Necking, then they discover your malignant melanoma

What redeems you as a human being? One time I made eye contact with Kristen Stewart. I sensed a lot of darkness in her soul. Maybe someone should talk to her.

    Any photos of a young Stalin you see were most likely heavily retouched. In reality he was covered with acne scars and had an asymmetrical face, but his real face was a closely guarded secret during his lifetime.

    Is Maria literally standing in front of a red flag?

    Maria is actually one of the most genuine people that I know. We studied abroad together, and she made my experience absoultely amazing. Okay, maybe she talks too much about school sometimes, but some people are into that. Love you, MC <3
