i don’t think anyone really understands how much compliments actually mean to me like i usually brush them off with a joke and a quick “thank you” but really i remember compliments for forever so if you’ve ever complimented me or done something nice for me thank you so much wow
Only LCD Soundsystem could sing the phrase “It’s saddest night out in the U.S.A” and make me want to dance along.
I was really afraid of failing. All my life I had been precocious— I was supposed to be smart, and I was supposed to be creative. And I think hearing those things makes you scared that you’re gonna do something stupid, or do something uninteresting and no one will see you as smart and creative anymore. […]
I realized that I’d been so afraid of failing and looking bad that I just didn’t do anything. I just did nothing. And I could claim some sort of safety in doing nothing. But then I decided that was pathetic and I needed to work against my instincts and start doing things."
