Cool for School

Today was one of those day when you have sweet child o’ mine by Guns and Roses and pour some sugar on me by Def Leppard blasting through your speakers or iPod. One of those days where big hair and your boyfriends shirt is what you feel like wearing cause frankly you couldn’t give a F***. Remind you of anything……smells like teen spirit!
