"I am so clearly conscious how little deserving I am."
"Listen to me carefully.
Don’t you dare love me
through the blood of the girls
who came before me.
If you can’t love me
without taking the knife
to someone else,
I’d rather you didn’t love me

Should I Save My Money or Should I Spend All Of It Buying More Books: The Struggle
"I want to say No More to the posts that chant ‘Always say yes to seeing friends’ or ‘Always stay for one more drink’ or ‘We remember the nights we stayed out past 9pm more than the nights we went to bed on time’.
Do not tell me that ‘No good story started with eating a salad’
And do not tell me I’m a party pooper for calling it a night when it gets dark.
Stop shaming the home birds,
Do not shame the introverts that love their own company,
The people that choose not to drink,
Or the people that are terrified of stepping out of their front door.
I am tired
Of hearing that I am not living
Simply because I enjoy scrabble and ‘countdown’ to tequila shots and bad decisions,
And I am tired
Of being shamed for being tired."
