When I was in 3rd grade I remember feeling awkward around this girl who was my classmate because of the following reasons.

  • she wore uneven pigtails
  • her nostrils were huge
  • because her nostrils were huge, I could always see her snot.
  • she always sat near me
  • she always talked to me with her nasally voice
  • she smiled a lot; but there was always food stuck in her braces (When I had braces, the image of her in my head always reminded me to keep my teeth clean)
  • she always seemed eager

But I guess magic happens randomly at random people, because when I was browsing through facebook and I accidentally saw her page and guess what:

  • she has no more braces

I went to my old wordpress and I saw the post I made about the lines I highlighted in "Perks of Being a Wallflower". I read it about a year ago. I'm posting it here just in case I forget about the existence of my wordpress. I'm pretty sure I will-- soon enough.


  • So, what’s the point of using words nobody else knows or can say comfortably? I just don’t understand that.

p. 21

  • We accept the love we think we deserve

p. 31

  • I read a book and I think I am the people in the book


  • You see things. You keep quiet about them...

"I have always craved a closeness that I could not find here."

"Why do I only see your images and not your writing? because we dream in pictures, not in words?"

"I crave an art that passionately transcends the mundane instead of being a device for self-deception"

"And I feel like I'm slipping into my drowning pool"

- Let's go let's go together doing something extraordinary, and I started making plans, thinking we would get that far.

- I want what can't possibly happen

- Undeveloped, the whole thing, tossed into a box before we really had a chance to know what we had, and that's why we broke up

- I mean, we wanted to. I mean, he did. We both did. I wasn't sure.

- And Ialmost said Ilove you. Instead, I said nothing and you said nothing.

- ...But then you snored like nobody would pretend, I stood in the doorway watching you sleep. I waited just to see you at that kind of peace. I wanted to be beside you. I wanted you to wake up slowly or startle, or just half awaken and turnover and go back to sleep or murmur my name. I wanted to watch you forever, or sleep forever while you woke and watched me, something forever anyway. I wanted to kiss yo...
