Most girls are mean.

I realize that’s a very general statement, but my years of research have proven it’s true. & if they’re not mean, they’re probably insane. If they’re both, umm… I have no suggestions here. Pray for them????

I like to think I’m in the insane category. At least the crazy ones are quirky! We are flawed, yes, but we keep it interesting. (Do you see how I’ve found a way to make myself sound perfect despite my insanity?)

I wasn’t always crazy. I was a mean girl in my youth. In 6th grade, I lined girls up & made them take a quiz I created to see if they could join my friend group. If they didn’t select Limited Too as their favorite clothing store, they were immediately disqualified. But I have EVOLVED.
