so better things can fall together.

and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.
- Marilyn Monroe

This life is what you make it.
Not matter what, you're going to mess up sometimes,
it's a universal truth.

But just remember, some come, some go.
The ones that stay with you through everything -
they're your true best friends.
Don't let go of them.
Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world.
- Marilyn Monroe

Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius
and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous
than absolutely boring.
