Well, the way it works, as I’ve learned recently, is if you reach a certain point in your career where things are going very well, public perception needs a ‘Yeah, but.’ Like, ‘Yeah, but she’s been on lots of dates apparently.’ ‘Yeah, but I hear she’s crazy.’ I think you’ll find it has a lot to do with being a woman. And I resent that. That there has to be some downside to your personality or lifestyle if you’re a woman and successful. But I’m not gonna say to my guy friends ‘No, I can’t go to lunch because people will say we’re dating.’ I just reject the idea I have to change the way I live my life.
I still love sparkles and grocery shopping and really old cats that are only nice to you half the time. I still love writing in my journal and wearing dresses all the time and staring at chandeliers.
You know when you’re really young. Like really young, and you’re playing on the playground and when other kids are mean to you, the advice most teachers give you is “always be yourself.” and that’s kind of hard to understand, even now. I think most people think their identity is what they wear or who they sit with at lunch and things like that. But I think, what makes you, you is how you treat people. So just, be nice to people.
