I’m Gonna Die Alone

Before we get into this post, it's important to note that I wrote this way back around the beginning of May. I wrote it because it was therapeutic.

A Dater’s Guide to Disney Princesses: Merida

Merida is the only character to come from a Pixar film to be named an official Disney Princess. Though she is not the only Pixar princess. Remember A Bug's Life?
