Today I have had an epiphany
I don't need to be told how to be swell
, or a bad girl
, or how to take a road trip
, what to wear, how to be more interesting or what to do in my spare time
It's my life
And in my life there is no place for books like
- "Swell: A Girl's Guide to the Good Life"
by Cynthia Rowley and Ilene Rosenzweig
- "Three Black Skirts: All You Need to Survive"
by Anna Johnson or
- "The Bad Girl's Guide to the Open Road"
by Cameron Tuttle
Someone else's instructions for life
are not neccesarily instructions for my
life. Or anyone else's for that matter.
is to be lived by experience, not by instruction.
And today I've ridded my life of guides to being a girl.
a boy named ben, or why i flagrantly ignore grammar conventions
