Confession: Some of us are guilty of wearing painted-on bikinis at some point during our wild and free college days.

As I’m sure you’ve noticed in my writing on The Frisky, I’m guilty of speaking in what I call “Gossip Girl”-ese. Example: It’s totes obvs that I like to shorten words for no real amazeballs reason.
