I grew up wanting to be doing just what I am doing and that desire came from a very exciting connection and awe that I felt while watching women like Lily Tomlin, Gilda Radner, Madeline Kahn, Ruth Gordon, Rosalind Russell, Marilyn Monroe, Shirley Temple and Carol Burnett. All of these women have a specific, self-controlled and self-loved identity. They could not be replaced by each other or with anyone else. Their power and sexuality and their different ways of expressing what it is to be an adult female were, and continue to be, my inspiration and my delight.

When you’re an introvert like me and you’ve been lonely for a while, and then you find someone who understands you, you become really attached to them. It’s a real release.


"I thought I understood it, that I could grasp it, but I didn’t, not really. Only the smudgeness of it; the pink-slippered, all-containered, semi-precious eagerness of it. I didn’t realize it would sometimes be more than whole, that the wholeness was a rather luxurious idea. Because it’s the halves that halve you in half. I didn’t know, don’t know, about the in-between bits; the gory bits of you, and the gory bits of me." - Like Crazy

What if we just paid Sandra Oh/Christina Yang to give us advice.

"It’s that thing when you’re with someone, and you love them and they know it, and they love you and you know it… but it’s a party… and you’re both talking to other people, and you’re laughing and shining… and you look across the room and catch each other’s eyes… but - but not because you’re possessive, or it’s precisely sexual… but because… that is your person in this life. And it’s funny and sad, but only because this life will end, and it’s this secret world that exists right there in public, unnoticed, that no one else knows about. It’s sort of like how they say that other dimensions exist all around us, but we don’t have the ability to perceive them. That’s - That’s what I want out of a relationship. Or just life, I guess." - Frances Ha (2012)
