2. There is nothing more therapeutic than going for a walk alone — bring sunglasses in case you cry

3. Listening to Top 40s hits is nothing to be ashamed of and never let someone tell u otherwise

“Back in my day…” We didn’t have to get Covid tested twice a week lol

Would you rather give up oral sex or cheese? Pardon

Whom would you like to thank? My momma and only my momma
