We may not miss them, either, for one minute in a year, but if we should there is nothing to be done about it.”
    F. Scott Fitzgerald, Tender Is the Night

    Well, get used to that feeling. That's how your whole life will feel some day.
    This is all practice.”
    Chuck Palahniuk, Invisible Monsters

    “Fuck me. I'm so tired of being me. Me beautiful. Me ugly. Blonde. Brunette. A million fucking fashion makeovers that only leave me trapped being me.

    What I need to do is fuck up so bad I can't save myself.”
