"Just be fucking honest about how you feel about people while you’re alive."
Apparently it’s not socially acceptable for a man to invite another man out just for coffee or to go out for a meal, in case it’s perceived as a date. Like it’s fine if you wanna go to the pub and drink beer and have a chat but make it non-alcoholic and suddenly you’re not straight anymore? You can go to the cinema together but ONLY if it’s an action movie. You guys can’t even just go shopping with each other. Oh masculinity, so fragile, so strange.
"Don’t ever compliment me by insulting other women. That’s not a compliment, it’s a competition none of us agreed to."
"I’ve been homesick for countries I’ve never been, and longed to be where I couldn’t be."

"Become friends with people who aren’t your age. Hang out with people whose first language isn’t the same as yours. Get to know someone who doesn’t come from your social class. This is how you see the world. This is how you grow."
