"People just wanted to be loved. That was the thing about words, they were clear and specific--chair, eye, stone-- but when you talked about feelings, words were just too stiff, they were this and not that, they couldn't include all the meanings. In definging, they always left something out." -Janet Fitch, White Oleander.
am reading White Oleander, and it's getting to me.
"I hadn't understood at the time. If sinners were so unhappy, why would they prefer their suffering? But now I knew why. Without my wounds, who was I? My scars were my face, my past was my life. It wasn't like I didn't know where all this remebering got you, all that hunger for beauty and astonishing cruelty and ever-present loss." -janet fitch
so i've been on summer vacation for like several hours (well, you know, not even really... I still have class tomorrow morning) and I'm already really really bored. hahaha, what am I going to do during summer? Maybe I should think a lot harder about getting a job, geez, I can already see the weeks of endless dvd watching (seeing as I don't have cable).
