"I don't believe anyone can waste their time, they're just getting prepared for the next thing"“It was pretty baller. Because ‘baller’ is the word that best describes Renaissance paintings’
“Why anyone cares about the Kardashians at all is totally beyond me.”“I. Love. Texas. ...just saying."
-"Well, I guess I can't hide my crazy...
