1. Allergies are weird. Especially, peanut.
2. Looking for a job? Persistence wins at everything.
3. If you refuse to quit, the end is decided. You have already won.
5. “When I think about my child-self, my little girl memories, all that little girl wanted to be was a storyteller, a poet, a person who gathers and arranges words like some people gather and arrange flowers. Words are the breakdown through which I see all of life, instead of molecules or notes or chords or colors. Words in even black and white snakes, back and forth across the page, the portals through which a little girl found a big world, and through which, now, a grown-up girl is trying to pass.”
