all the little live things

where middlebrow meets highbrow meets whiskey.

It would be too easy to label “How to Build a Girl” a coming-of-age novel. While Moran does chronicle the emotional firsts and dramatic assertions of independence most of us associate with our teenage years, she also understands that, especially if you are a girl of limited financial and cultural means, you don’t “come of age,” gliding toward a true, adult version of yourself. Identity isn’t something you age into. You have to construct your adult self with the resources at your disposal, pausing occasionally to assess your progress and sometimes tearing it down to start again.

i only took this quiz cuz i knew that there was a result that ended with a grimes picture, and i would like to say that i had to skew my answers wildly to get it.   I would like to point out that my real answers lead to jennifer anniston.  

How can I begin anything new with all of yesterday in me?
