Hi, I'm Lauren!
(or rdm, if you prefer the shorter name with the longer story)
I'm 23, a university student and a self-confessed music nerd.
Here you'll find Glee, Disney, Sherlock, fic, musicals, pretty people, pretty things and my ramblings.
Oh and I have a tendency to overshare. Don't say I didn't warn you.
