love is how you stay alive even after you are gone

I believe you. After everything we’ve been through, I believe you.

My entire life, people have always told me that I was stupid and after a while I started to believe them and it wasn’t until I walked in this room and joined this club that I really started believing in myself. As soon as I did that, as soon as I started believing that maybe I was smart after all, I think the whole world did too.

“I’m always late, but it’s usually only by about five to 10 minutes. The assistant direct always calls me as soon as I’m, like, one second late to find out where I am, so I start making up stories. Like, ‘Oh, I had to break up this fight between two inner-city kids,’ ‘I had to rescue this dog, I’m so sorry!’ Or, ‘This old lady was walking in the street and she was blind and didn’t have a cane, so I had to help her…’”

"Spend your free time the way you like, not the way you think you’re supposed to. Stay home on New Year’s Eve if that’s what makes you happy. Skip the committee meeting. Cross the street to avoid making aimless chitchat with random acquaintances. Read. Cook. Run. Write a story."
