Bout to get REAL real up in this blitch.


(I just tried to mash “blog” and “bitch” like a bitch blog…blitch…cuz of the expression — Ok I’m 👀🤐)

I’m a person who’s always the first to leave…at least emotionally. It’s not hard for me to decide “oh, ok. This how it is. Alright imma dip right about NOW, I wish you all the best(usually)”
