Lend Me Your Eyes

I'm a 25 year old actor, college graduate, artist, poet, student of life, awesome person. I love art, literature, theater, film, fashion, and music. An extrovert who's never met a stranger. --- It's hard to describe who I am in so few words as I'm constantly challenging stereotypes and trying to break the standard molds of what a woman, a daughter, a sister, an actor, a friend, etc. should be. But, hopefully this is a good start.

Only be with someone who you think you can learn from. They should be smarter than you in certain ways so that you can continue to grow and be interested. Above all, you should undoubtedly be proud that you are with them.

Art and love are the same thing: It’s the process of seeing yourself in things that are not you.

Why do we always choose the opposite of what we want? I think, because we don’t want to be dependent. When two people love each other, they don’t love in the same way. One of them is strong, the other is weaker. And the weaker is always the one who loves without reckoning, without reservation. It feels now as if I’ve awakened from some kind of dream after some other kind of life. For some reason, I always offered resistance. I fought against something. I defended myself, just as though I’d had someone else inside me saying: don’t give into anything, don’t go along with anything or you’ll die.
