Erin. 21. New Jersey. History major and Simpsons enthusiast. When I was 5, I became obsessed with the afterlife and that has led to some rather strange fascinations with Ghosts, Time Travel, History, and Astronomy. I want to be a professional ghost hunter, but for now I'm studying the 17th n' 18th centuries and anthropology / archaeology. I promise I'm not strange, but I'm really quiet. I might just tell people to visit here when they ask me who I am... I also love film, travel, writing, literature, art, mail, and anything Versailles. Central Jersey, NYC, and Chicago are my 3 homes

Me: I'll sleep early tonight and get a good 8 hours
Me: *watches entire season of tv show*
Me: *reads every book i own*
Me: *goes on quest to find the holy grail*

student: can i borrow a pencil
teacher: i don't know, CAN you?
student: yes, also colloquial irregularities occur frequently in any language and since you and the rest of our present company understood my intended meaning, being particular about the distinctions between "can" and "may" is purely pedantic and arguably pretentious

Apparently Freddy has the power to change suits really quickly.
