the name's lauren// lor, lo, lolita, lorena, lola, yolo, laurenface.
23 is the number of years I've endured life on this planet.
BAY AREA; born&raised.
there's no place quite like home - family first.
love that handful of true friends with all my heart <3.
have undying passions for writing, animals, running, learning, photography, psychology, reading, dancing, fashion &music.
I'm the girl who cries at everything, but laughs just as much.
I believe that expressing emotions isn't a sign of weakness, it's a sign that you're REAL and have a heart.
-- throughout the years I've learned thus far; to love all, and trust few. to pick myself back up when I get knocked down, cause life is short and I'd rather spend my time smiling than frowning. take a lesson out of every experience, whether it be a good or bad one. there's more to see than can ever be seen, always be kind no matter what. [surround yourself with people who make you laugh, who make you feel good about yourself, who are there through the happy and sad, who lend a helping hand and give advice in times of need, who count on you just as much as you count on them.]
