describes someone who can indeed act chill, but loves to dance, as long as it's with the right person, has maybe tried a few drugs in her day, and drinks because she likes the way it tastes. Also avoids drama at all costs while still having a good time.
That chic is acting so marla and just having a good time without creating a bunch of drama.
