I thought I was going to school to be other people, but really, what I learned was to be myself - accepting myself, my strengths and weaknesses.

America’s a free country but you can’t stand in the oval office

"I think I’m surprisingly different in real life than what people expect or what people project on to me. I’m not actually that awkward, I don’t think. I think people see me as this sarcastic person that doesn’t care about anything. But, on the contrary, I’m pretty emotional and sensitive and I care a lot about things and people. I think in moments where the spotlight is on me — like if I’m doing a talk show — my defenses come into play and maybe that’s why people see me that way. But, I think my sarcasm is often a way for me to get through those moments. I mean, if you came over to my house, I’d make you a cup of tea and be probably really interested in you."

I was really nervous about getting my bangs trimmed because I’ve never gotten blunt bangs cut in Tally so I ended up going to the most expensive place in town, but I now realize their expensive for a reason because this is easily the best cut my bangs have ever got. They look so natural for being just cut (like they’ve had a couple weeks to grow out) and the stylist was really nice and awesome and he had this cute little square business card he gave me and I’ll think I’ll spend the 12 dollars to go to him every other month.
