  6. Whenever I feel like a failure, I pretend it’s an artistic choice.
  7. When people don’t like me, it doesn’t make me sad. I’m like, no, I get that.

  10. Every time I see kids being kids, I want to tell them they’re doing it all wrong.
  11. Every time I see teenagers, I’m happy to be an adult.
  12. Every time I see someone else in their twenties, I want to ask them how we got here.
