Lost mine in Ď97. It sucked but life is such a weird experience, I think thereís a real good chance weíve been here before. Iím just moving forward and doing the things I hope donít make me look like a bitch when we meet again.

Once you have cleared out your parentís house, you look at your own house and realize how much pointless stuff you have too.
