    • Being a blogger would be such an easy job. I’d get to justify doing things I normally wouldn’t do because I could say it’s for my job. I could be like “I bought $1000 worth of lipstick to find the ultimate color” or “I ate only pasta for three weeks and this is what happened!” how fun would that be

    • News is so fake! Except for the news that aligns with my cultural personality. For instance, I love to shoot pop cans. No I’ve never served in war but I KNOW I’d be great in combat because of the pop cans. So any news that says me shooting pop cans is for morons is FAKE news. Ya see?

I find that Fox reporters often laugh at dumb shit the other networks cook up and that's nice but I find myself wanting more.
