QUOTES. BECAUSE I FEEL LIKE IT, THAT'S WHY.

I AM SO BORED.

I know. I should be thrilled to know freaking end. This is my first Saturday in SIX WEEKS that I haven't had to get up for driver's ed!!!!!!! But I actually...might sorta kinda a little bit maybe miss it.

I know. I'M A FREAK!! There, I said it for you. But I miss seeing people every Saturday. And frankly, sleeping in is over-rated. DID I JUST SAY THAT??? I did, didn't I?? Well, it kind of shoots the whole day in the foot if you ask me. Getting up at 11 is not ideal after all. Who woulda thought?

Well, in honor of my random hyperness (I did not even have caffeine or chocolate) and supreme boredness, I have compiled a bunch of random quotes that I love! Some of them are humorous, some of them actually hold wisdom.

And I'm not gonna tell you what is what. BWAHAHAHHA!

Okay. I definitely got too much sleep.
