you are at the beach. you see a large shell. you pick it up and put it to your ear to hear the ocean, but instead you hear dubstep and rave music. inside the shell are hundreds of crustaceans, dancing, raving, drinking, and shooting heroin. you put down the shell.
I am a collection of dismantled almosts.
- Anne Sexton, from A Self-Portrait in Letters (Houghton Mifflin, 1977)
Your 20’s are such an important part of your life as far as figuring out who you are, the type of person you want to be, and what type of people you want to surround yourself with. I think they’ve been really important years to me. I’ve definitely learned a lot, made a lot of mistakes, but so does everyone
