Many people believe every age marks something significant, that you should accomplish a certain something by a certain time. Your first kiss, losing your virginity, getting married. Learning to drive, knowing what you want to be, succeeding in your goals. But that’s not true. Let things just happen. Make sure you’re ready. Stay wise. Give yourself time to develop. There is no rush to live.
I’ve stopped being sorry for all my soft. I won’t apologize because I miss you, or because I said it, or because I text you first, or again. I think everyone spends too much time trying to close themselves off. I don’t want to be cool or indifferent, I want to be honest.
Las drogas agrandan pupilas. Como la oscuridad. O el amor.
—Doris Lessing, *De nuevo, el amor*.
Me he pasado el fin de semana con los auriculares puestos. Anestesia. Solo por si no estaba lo suficientemente borracho… Cuando era niño aprendí a usarlos como anestesia… escucha.
