I'm Leaving On a Jet Plane…

Ok, I’m not really flying but I will be headed back down to Brooklyn to visit a special someone this weekend. Yeah I know I don’t post much any more. So shoot me! Just been distracted by a girl, and have also just been trying to relax a bit this summer before my final semester of undergrad kicks off in September. I won’t make any promises to post more often because I’m quite positive that would just be a lie anyway.
