fat men on mopeds,
black kids laughing at my dancing
(the Arctic Monkeys are the love children of Evanescence and every rapper ever)

until 7am. I didn’t
know why until I found
out his brain had overloaded.
Even though I hated him a little,

Her love life sucks,
but I can literally hear them

how the hell do I even use oil pastels? my sister has a shit ton left over from when she was into art
They’re boss for smearing. Use a smudge stick or the white pastel and you can make lots of pretty colors. You can also use terpenoid and brush over them. :)
