I think about women a lot. Girls, too. I see a strong difference between the two, in the exact same way you could imagine some catty college sophomore would intone “men” and “boys.” Women have been around, have slouched enough toward the type of person they’ll become for the next few decades for it to become a consistent posture; girls are still malleable, confused, flighty. Unlike the aforementioned sophomore, I don’t necessarily assign solely negativity towards the latter. I do, however, see “girls” as fun - a girl being someone I’ll sleep with, not take seriously in any way - whereas with a woman there’s a lot more respect involved.
These are the types of girls I find myself involved with.
These are the types of women I tend to find myself involved with.
I’m currently involved with the most womanly-woman I’ve ever been with, and she’s been on my mind ever since I’ve been away on this trip. I’ve been really honest with her since the beginning of our thing. I don’t know, I hope it works out.

It’s fucking embarrassing how badly this got me.

“I think it’s a book about a haunted theme park and it stars a magical magic guy and he’s good and evil and he’s trying to get rid of the ghosts. And I think at the end, since it’s haunted by a ghost, he tried to make the park go on fire and it did.“ — A six-year-old girl Judges a book by its cover
Wow that little girls an idiot lol

"I am free,” he said suddenly. And his joy changed, on the spot, to a crushing sense of anguish."
