    Hahah, yeah. I'm kinda embarrassed to tell it

    to most people, but I'm a lil farm girl, in a very small town. I don't dress country or anything, but a lot of people like to point out my accent. Which really sucks, even people that goes to my school tells me I have one and like 75% of them are what you call "rednecks." Haha...
