At university there was a girl, her name was Rachel Hollis. She took the same course as I did. Rachel was very clever, top of the class, never got anything less than an A… She once said, and I quote: “It’s just completely impossible for me to not be amazing.”
With me joining the course, her status of being top of the class was apparently being challenged and she did not like me at all for it. She would bully me every now and then, and this one time she was standing in front of me, repeating many of the things she said before about how I was a pathetic, little prat and whatever else, and as she was rambling on I noticed she was suddenly blinking fairly rapidly - I realized this was something my mother did because she wore contacts - so I said “Your contacts are becoming dry” and apparently this was the wrong thing to say because she freaked out and was shouting, trying to convince her friends that she didn’t wear contacts. I never did understand why that was so important to her. Since then my mind just hasn’t stopped, I guess.
Blood bounces quite strikingly on snow not only because of the obvious color/contrast discrepancy, but the large difference in temperatures.
How to focus your aim with a gun

"Oh, thank you very much!"
"Fashion tips? Wear whatever makes you feel good, wear things that you like the feel of, things that you like the look of. And accessories - all sorts of sparkly things.
"How to destroy a man? Well, it depends on the man, of course. You must find the most effective way to tear our his heart and fragment his mind. But also, have fun, take pride in your work - it’s an art."
"It’s difficult to say. There are always those moments that one wishes to redo or erase but everything that has happened so far in my life, they have been vital to me. I learn a lot from past events, favourable or not."
