Just a few of my favorite Marilyn Monroe quotes

-
"Everybody is always tugging at you. They'd all like a sort of chunck out of you. I don't think they realize it, but it's like 'grrr do this, grr do that...' But you do want to stay intact and on two feet."
-
"I was never used to being happy, so that wasn't something I took for granted. You see, I was brought up differently from the average American child because the average American child is brought up expecting to be happy."

a few hours.
the other one is 35 days and will be 36 in 6 hours. It's more than my previous record of 20 days but it doesn't feel as good because I'm not entirely free.

4 months and 1 day. my goal is to make it 8 months this time.


Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

woah,
you know to keep your hopes up high and your head down low.

2 hours. I'm so weak. I used to be strong but no I fucked it up and had to cut tonight. Fuck.



When I'm sad I think, "I got a jar of dirt, I got a jar of dirt!"

You can do this!
Twenty-five days. Almost cut last night and then this morning but I didn't.
