Some Kids Blew The Door Off A Locker With A Dry Ice Bomb

One Of The Prissy Girls Got Pregnant But Handled Things Very Maturely

I'm not normally a fan of teen pregnancies- I grew up in an area with a lot of that and have seen all the issues it causes- but she handled things beautifully. I hope you're doing well, Tamara!
