"Some things don’t last forever, but some things do. Like a good song, or a good book, or a good memory you can take out and unfold in your darkest times, pressing down the corners and peering in close, hoping you still recognize the person you see there."
It’s really gross how not caring about stuff is cool. No. It’s really cool to watch for my reaction when you’re showing me your favourite TV show for the first time and it’s really cool to agonize over a text because you want it to be perfect and it’s really cool to write a long letter to someone you admire. There’s nothing in the world that’s lamer than apathy.
Whoops that was supposed to be a private response haha
no, I'm hoping to move out to burbank from miami this coming august. :(
Hey I might move out with another friend around that time! We’re staying LA based because of school but we haven’t decided on where but Burbank would totally be an option
I want to spill my heart out to someone.
But I don’t want to give it away
I started writing in college. I had a great playwriting teacher who said ‘you should write’. It almost hadn’t occurred to me that that was something I could do. I was a theater fanatic when I was in high school and –– Wendy Wasserstein? Caryl Churchill? I could count on one hand the women I knew who wrote plays. Every great American playwright was a man. And so I just sort of were like, ‘they’re men, they’re probably smarter than me, I can’t do it’. And then someone was like ‘Why did you ever think that? You can totally do it.’ But I think if you don’t have examples, it’s very hard to imagine yourself doing it.
