Sage advice

(from one of my characters)

 

“You’re young.
God knows you’ve been through a lot in your short years.
Your 20s are the start of your adult life, and it’s normal to feel completely lost.
I spent my 20s in a hateful relationship, hating myself and everyone else who was happy.
I didn’t feel truly secure until my 30s.
Go explore, experiment, get lost, try to find yourself.
Your 20s are the time to do it.”

Hey girl, do you really like The Ramones?

…so illusive. It runs and it skips and it hops away from me.

Love is not conducive to rational decisions

Melancholia Competition

{In 25 words or less, what would you do if you knew the world was going to end tomorrow?}

I would watch all Von Trier’s films back-to-back because he’s a genius.
And with the world ending afterwards, I wouldn’t have to worry about nightmares.
