If one could make a living making and sharing memes, Justine would have done so and with utter relish. But alas, no such job exists (at least to her knowledge), so here she is, digging the deep trenches of the Internet to back up the words she strings for posterity and public service. Her current passion for memes is relegated to pastime status, but she hopes that one day, she can sit back with a dirty martini and scroll and share memes like a beast without having to worry about next month's rent.
