“I've learned to get really good at this - say one thing when I'm thinking about something else, act like I'm listening when I'm not, pretend to be calm and happy when I'm really freaking out. It's one of the skills you perfect as you get older”
Lauren Oliver, Delirium

Lauren Graham
“I must work harder to achieve my goal of not seeking approval from those whose approval I'm not even sure is important to me.”
Lauren Graham, Someday, Someday, Maybe
