Any time I watch Twin Peaks season one and think about Laura Palmer: “Hey, I admire any teenage girl who could have several handsome boyfriends, be popular, be homecoming queen, be on the honor roll, cope with a demonic force, lie to her friends 24/7, get one boyfriend running drugs, drive another mad with passion, seduce her therapist, be a hardcore cocaine addict and high-class expensive escort...all while participating in the town Meals on Wheels programs.

Eh, when I was 18 I could barely manage applying to college and passing Chemistry. 

Laura was a multi-tasker.
