I can bring the glam to the water!
Dear Buoys and Boarders,
Do you know that I’ve always had a fantasy of being a ranger type? Like, put on a uniform and patrol the parks or the water, or the woods. Cuz, stuff can happen there! But I hope not a lot of bad stuff because I don’t want to have to use a gun. I just want to look cute and be all-authority and stuff. Which I can do in a nice way. Because I’m nice. And I want to wear a badge.
Plus, my uncle was a police officer. But he got in trouble when he asked a 16-year-old how she got her Mardi Gras beads, and then he told her how it’s done and her mom was really mad. So now he works security at Walmart.
Every Day I’m Rangering,

I'm just your average girl who wants a kick-ass life and... love! If I could be a superhero, that would be AWESOME! I'm currently a "phone actress" looking for a really cool career. Don't get me wrong-- I love giving a hand to dudes who need someone to chat with. Everybody needs somebody! But, my parents keep telling me I need a respectable job. Sigh.
