    My love... I'm getting a new Nook! I am so excited. :D I'm posting from the computer, so this really sucks. We need a new book since I got locked out somehow. Oh, and I've been looking on Naplo, and it seems I have an imposter. T.T Ignore them...

    My love... I'm getting a new Nook! I am so excited. :D I'm posting from the computer, so this really sucks. We need a new book since I got locked out somehow. Oh, and I've been looking on Naplo, and it seems I have an imposter. T.T Ignore them... I love you, and I'll be on as soon as possible. But I will have to inform you that I am not returning to Naplo. I hate that place. :/ I might be on tonight! But maybe not. So don't get too excited. x3
