I had to read Sophie’s World in middle school and the “had to” completely ruined it for me. I think I actually bought it last year to reread it, but I still haven’t gotten over that school-induced disgust.
I hate when that happens. We read Perfume in school and luckily i’d read it before, because when we read it i absolutely had no interest in it anymore

She said ‘Adam, I almost started laughing.’ And I said, ‘why?’ and she said, ‘because, as I was singing, I suddenly became aware that the song was sort of long and all of a sudden in my head I pictured Cory staring at me and like, with the finger telling me to wrap it up already, and I wanted to start laughing, but I couldn’t cause no one would’ve understood.
And I thought, Oh my God, he was in the room. He was in the room telling Amber to wrap it up. And that connection felt very, very real. He was a great man, I loved him very much.’

All I’ve ever wanted was to feel special and to feel chosen, and I just, um…I wanted to thank you guys so much for giving me that.
I want to shine and be seen as the star I am.
"I’ve been given the position of being a role model for girls, and I take it on with such pride. What I’m dealing with right now is the most unfortunate, horrendous thing in the world, but if I could take anything from it and make it positive, that’s the only thing that I can do."
