Book cover for The Anthropocene Reviewed
One of the strange things about adulthood is that you are your current self, but you are also all the selves you used to be, the ones you grew out of but can’t ever quite get rid of.
“I love my boys so much I fear my heart will explode. I wonder if this love will crack open my chest and split me in half. It is scary, this love.”
Amy Poehler

Jacqueline Woodson
“I know now that what is tragic isn’t the moment. It is the memory.”
Jacqueline Woodson, Another Brooklyn

Carrie Brownstein
“That’s why all those records from high school sound so good. It’s not that the songs were better—it’s that we were listening to them with our friends, drunk for the first time on liqueurs, touching sweaty palms, staring for hours at a poster on the wall, not grossed out by carpet or dirt or crumpled, oily bedsheets. These songs and albums were the best ones because of how huge adolescence felt then, and how nostalgia recasts it now.”
Carrie Brownstein, Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl: A Memoir

Rainbow Rowell
“It doesn't seem like I should have been able to get to this life from my old one, like there aren't even roads between those two places.”
Rainbow Rowell, Attachments

Carrie Brownstein
“There is something freeing in seeing yourself in a new context. People have no preconceived notion of who you are, and there is relief in knowing that you can re-create yourself.”
Carrie Brownstein, Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl
