Man may have discovered fire, but women discovered how to play with it
I want someone who won't care that I'm
incapable of sitting still, that I can't grasp
the concept of cleaning, and I refuse to be
ladylike. Someone who realizes that half
of the decisions I make are usually ones I
regret, and I have the right to overreact
at any given moment. I want someone
who knows how completely insane I am,
and he wouldn't want me any other way.
I may not be someone's first choice, but I am a great choice. I don't pretend to be someone I'm not, because I'm good at being me. I might not be proud of some of the things I've done in the past, but I am proud of who I am today. I may not be perfect, but I don't need to be. Take me as I am, or watch me as I walk away.
Do not go where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
All I can do is be me, whoever that is.
“The expression ‘following suit’ is a curious one, because it has nothing to do with walking behind a matching set of clothing. If you follow suit, it means you do the same thing somebody else has just done. If all of your friends decided to jump off a bridge into the icy waters of an ocean or river, for instance, and you jumped in right after them, you would be following suit. You can see why following suit can be a dangerous thing to do, because you could end up drowning simply because somebody else thought of it first.”
