CENTRAL METAPHORS FOR MY BIOPIC

Onwards to the Independent Spirit Awards
  1. 1.
    I was a Girl Scout for three years and never earned a single badge.
  2. 2.
    My college has been holding my diploma since 2007 because I owe something to the tune of $11ish in library fees.
    Ehhh.
  3. 3.
    There is an opened but unread letter sent from a federal prison sitting on my bedside table.
    I'm pretty sure I know what it says.
  4. 4.
    I get doubled carded ordering Shirley Temples at bars.
    Babyfaced alcoholics unite and take over?
  5. 5.
