What is your favorite quote?(i have three)
"we're all fed such false messages about success in life, made to believe it's a point of arrival. so most of us spend our whole lives waiting to arrive. we expect that once we get there, the long story of the life we just lived will be infused with meaning. but while we're waiting our voices dry up. they forget how to ask, they forget how to listen, they forget how to tell." - off the map
"out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls. the most massive characters are seared with scars." - khalil gibran
"you're not alive yesterday. you're not alive tomorrow. you're alive at that moment. if you can grab something for that moment, you have a chance." - johnny x

What is your favorite childhood book?as a little kid i read everything i could get my hands on. my mom took us to the library every week & i checked out the maximum amount of books i could & it was still not enough. so i would read her books. i'm pretty sure i was way too young to read vc andrews' "flowers in the attic" which i absolutely loved for some twisted reason.
What are you afraid of?
sharks, fire & bridges. like terrified. i guess i'm also afraid of letting people down, especially the people i love.
