    So at 3 am, I went down stairs to get water

    because I was dying of thirst. I end up finding my cousin making peanut butter cookies because apparently he was "craving them." Who the hell does that? -_- but they were good cookies, so whatever.

    "we're All Pretty Much Over It"

    My family, while it seems strange to me, is probably like many others - well, my dad's side at least. This side of the family is very financially focused (who isn't nowadays!) and tends to like to paint a pretty picture despite what's going on underneath. My grandfather (my dad...
