On accepting her imperfections:
Something thats been lovely about the last couple of years is that Ive finally abandoned the pursuit of perfection, which I think I was pretty stubbornly holding on to, just always trying to be the best at everything I did. I grew up enough to realize that the people I respect arent perfectionists. And I was like, Oh, thats so much more perfect.
On her conservative sense of style:
I have a goal, which is that I dont ever want to look back on something I wore and think, Oh my God, what was I thinking That feeling is much scarier than looking back and thinking, Oh, I took myself so seriously. Im so buttoned up.
On following her childhood dreams:
My childhood was stamped with this one certainty, that I knew what I wanted to be, which I realize now was very unusual. Most of my friends are still figuring it out. I only knew one other kid like me; she wanted to be a singer, and in first grade wed have sleepovers, and she dressed up like a Beatle and I dressed up like Marilyn Monroe.
