“Things are sweeter when they’re lost. I know—because once I wanted something and got it. It was the only thing I ever wanted badly. And when I got it, it turned to dust in my hands.”—F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Beautiful and Damned
I’m not sure why people stress about this so much. boys ain’t shit. walk up to them and talk to them. confidence is nice. there are always people saying things like, “you have to do this and not laugh too much and not be too smart or too stupid” etc and I’m like why not just say and do what you want and if they don’t dig it then too the fuck bad for them. worrying about how to talk to boys is very irrelevant. find people that are worth your time and talk to them. it will come natural.
“I am afraid of getting older … I am afraid of getting married. Spare me from cooking three meals a day—spare me from the relentless cage of routine and rote. I want to be free…. I want, I want to think, to be omniscient…. I think I would like to call myself ‘The girl who wanted to be God.’”—Sylvia Plath, written in 1949 at age 17
