Today, I'm sending in a completed draft of my dissertation, which means my actual defense is a little under a month away. Insane.
So: to celebrate the hundreds of pages of jumbled words I just sent out, some lovely ones I recently read:
"There's an intimacy in listening to somebody's lies, I've always thought-- you learn more about someone from the things they wish were true than from the things that actually really are."
(p.26, from the beautiful A Partial History of Lost Causes by Jennifer Dubois. If you are in the search of a phenomenal read, here it is.)
