I hate that one side of the family…. Thank god they showed me how to NOT treat people.
Spend your free time the way you like, not the way you think you’re supposed to. Stay home on New Year’s Eve if that’s what makes you happy. Skip the committee meeting. Cross the street to avoid making aimless chitchat with random acquaintances. Read. Cook. Run. Write a story.
If a writer falls in love with you, you can never die.
