    And I'd Be Twirling 100 Hula Hoops!

    I Want To Run Away And Join The Circus.

    I do. I REALLY do. I REALLY DO. I want to be somewhere I've never been. I want to explore. I want to bump into happy messes and crash into love. I want to dive headfirst in a pool of craziness and come out gasping for air and bask in the head rush it gives me. I'm tired of being...
