There are few things in this world that bring me as much joy as watching movies. I come from a movie family. I’ve always loved movies. All we did growing up was basically watch movies.

I, Shelby Boyer, lover of puppy parades and follower of more canines than humans, finally got a dog.

I love birthdays. People make fun of me for how much I love birthdays. I drag my birthday out so much no one even knows when my real birthday is. Why exactly am I like this? Beats me.
I mean, you know I love being extra, so that could be part of it.
