Things Change. And Friends Leave. Life doesn't stop for anybody. We accept the love we think we deserve. Even if we don't have the power to choose where we come from, we can still choose where we go from there. In this moment I swear, We are Infinite. - The Perks of Being A Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

No offense, but everyone keeps singing that song, and it's getting so old, I hate it so much!!!! I made some really funny, but offensive theories of Elsa, and I hate it so much, like I want to blow up Disney for that.
