to quote someone i look up to:
"well, you see, it's mostly about me. well, entirely about me, but here's the catch: i'm you. no, really, i mean it. not like that transcendentalism stuff we're learning in english class, but really, truly, i'm you. i know what it feels like when your heart beats so hard against your bone white ribs, when you sing in the shower with soap in your eyes, when you run until you get a side ache. i wrote this story about you because i am so in love with you, your broken-fence teeth and your tissue-paper scars. i love you when you're so exhausted it could topple you to the ground, so in love it could snap guitar strings, so sickly sweet it could make lips smile. this is a reckless love story. this is my shameless confession."

teenager at heart, always. secretly aspiring musician and movie star and poet. in reality, aspiring lawyer. watches too much tv and reads too many books that don't really say anything. not smart, good at bullshit. always in love. always sincere.
read me. i will rip my heart out and you can read it on these glowing internet screens. please do. think and be heard. that's all i want to do.
