Megan Chase// Brainwrecked

The results are in, and I’m a 10! . . . on a scale of the DSM-5. My brain runs with the speed of a Ferrari, yet somehow is only equipped with the brakes of a skateboard. So every time I try to stop my thoughts from speeding downhill, I have to jump off and pray I don’t get road rash (I ALWAYS end up with road rash). Some say it’s because I’m an air sign. I say it’s because I’m just in a silly goofy mood. Come spend the night with me and my innermost thoughts to find out who the man. . . or monkey. . . or muppet behind the curtain of my brainwreck truly is.
