“apathy is a disease and some days i long for it.”
Zoe Trope, Please Don't Kill the Freshman

“Don’t you love my idealism? My hypocrisy? My willingness to sound as loving and naive as possible? At least I know that I don’t know anything at all. I can admit it. Can you? Can you look yourself in the mirror in the morning and admit that you are no different from every other bundle of bones on this planet? And maybe the only things that make you different are your hands, the way you touch things, and what happens to them.”
Zoe Trope, Please Don't Kill the Freshman

“sometimes every word i write is 'love' but the letters are rearranged, the sounds are different. all the words are red.”
Zoe Trope, Please Don't Kill the Freshman
