I’m not a girl that demands that much so when I want something I usually get it. When I first moved here from England which was three months ago, we found a house to buy and I got rejected on this house. Our bid was not enough, and I went into a depression like you can't believe.
Having just moved here from another country is hard enough anyway, losing and missing your friends, moving to a complete strange town, we never lived in LA before. But it made me stronger and I knew the next time I found a house that I wanted I was determined not to let it go. It was going to be mine no matter what.
If I get knocked down I get right up again. I don't lie there and wallow too much.
I have real live Bulldogs but I sleep with stuffed Bulldogs. I like to cuddle with them.
When I was little I had a polar bear and it was called Broomus. He was my bubba. One day when I was nine my mother sent it to the laundry and it fell apart. I think it had a serious mental effect on me, for a while. I used to tell Broomus everything.
