i didn’t realize that being in love with your life can be just as wonderful as being in love with another person. every relationship takes work and effort, and when i put that work and effort into my friends, family, and fans … my life changed completely. i started making choices based on what i wanted, and didn’t feel like i needed to justify them. if i wanted to cut my hair, i did it. if i wanted to move to new york, i did it. if i wanted to take a spontaneous road trip, i did it.
