my name is aly.

i find it's easiest to do things with permanent markers
and enough big paper. beer also helps.
i'm currently horribly obsessed with max bemis
& the painful splits, my subscription to GQ
and sitting in my kitchen window.

if my life were a movie it would be called
chasing amy at my best friend's wedding.
i succeed at laughing at myself most days.

i used to love this website when i was in high school.
in college, i got away from writing a little bit and i figured
i should return to what i loved about it.
new collections to follow, plz bear with me through my formatting frenzy.

leave me a review and i will love you forever.
