1  "She seems so cool, so focused, so quiet, yet her eyes remain fixed upon the horizon. You think you know all there is to know about her immediately upon meeting her, but everything you think you know is wrong."  Neil Gaiman, Fragile Things2  I think she's caught between who she is and who she wants to be. 


"You tried to change, didn't you? Closed your mouth more, tried to be softer, prettier, less 

volatile, less awake...You can't make homes out of human beings. Someone should have already told you that." Warsan Shire
