This is from The True Confessions of a Toriphile by Irin Carmon, a college-age journalist. Something random I read today, which seems to say a lot to me, and hopefully, many of this journal’s readers, about our jagged attempts at starting our lives:
(Tori) stood up. “I want to read what you’re writing in 10 years. I want to read what you’re writing now! You must be so excited, just starting out and starting college at the same time.” She leaned in, daintily planting a kiss on each of my cheeks. “Good luck with everything. It’s going to be fantastic. There’ll be down days–believe me, I’ve had them–but they’re just–they’re just salt!”
They are, but you need to taste it to believe it.
