listening to the transformers animated opening theme
My favorite gem is Pearl because, well, feeling like you mean nothing and only exist to protect someone else from dying, I've been there. I think I've grown a lot since I was in that place and have learned to value myself and that I am important, but it means a lot to me to see who I used to be in Pearl and watch her grow and learn to love herself like I did. I think she's a really well-written character with a lot of layers, and I find her really funny, too! I love Pearl.
