“Do not try to be pretty. You weren’t meant to be pretty; you were meant to burn down the earth and graffiti the sky. Don’t let anyone ever simplify you to just “pretty.””
"I was always made to feel like I’d be successful because I always did my homework. I wish I’d spent more time putting energy into things that came from myself."
