Happy New Year

Happy New Year!! I know this is really belated but the past week has been lots of fun.

I can't really identify with Bo Tong and that sucks a bit because identifying with the leads is one major factor in drawing me into any drama. I'm so excited for Pretty Little Liars yipee! <3thoughtsramble

Also, he's pretty infuriating the way he treats Bo Tong, like a puppy that he owns or something. If anything, …
