Step 1: Make a mug of hot chocolate. Preferably Mexican hot chocolate, with lots of cinnamon and foam.
Step 2: Grab a cookie. Or two. Hell, this is special so you can have three if you’d like.

Step 4: Sit back, get cozy…
Step 5: And listen:

If it seems too adorable for you at first, just know that it gets surprisingly dark and 100% epic.

Bonus ways to fix your heart, at least if you are me: a surprise mixtape from Seattle Courtney, playing Egyptian Rat Screw AND Tetris with a boy for the first time in years, and Josh Arnold in general. Oh and Twilight, obviously.

Okay, fess up. This is you when you were a kid right? And you secretly speak French? …That’s why you’re called Secretly Stephy, right? You secretly speak French and tell Kafka-esque children stories?
Also, I’ve been playing Tetris Party on the Wii; do you have a Wii? You seem more like a PlayStation or xBox person.
I had the exact same haircut and I’m part French, so it’s a start. Here’s a couple pics of me as a kid:
I took French for years but am terrible (tair-eee-bleh) at speaking. When I went to Paris, all I was good for was translating menus for friends.
Jason has an x-box and we are babysitting a Wii til Christmas. I am basically an old-school Nintendo girl for life. He hooked it up to the big TV last week and I am in heaven. (“Too late now; you decided to be dead in heaven!”)

Dude, that was me every morning freshman year of highschool! I’d put on my mom’s old Saturday Night Fever record and by the time I was done getting ready for school I was pumped! My favorite was Disco Inferno. And I actually got the bonus question right in history because of “A Fifth of Beethoven”. Rock on!
oooh you got to get tetris for the wii and we can play 2 player mega team tetris building on the uber uber wide box, that some shizznit.

By “Mexican Hot Chocolate,” do you mean ABUELITA!? Man I have several tablets of ABUELITA in my cupboard.
YES DUDE. That has been my fave since middle school.
