I want to sit with my legs wide open and laugh so loud that the whole damn restaurant turns and looks at me.
Thank God I have music to vent my emotions. I’d be in a prison if I didn’t.

I’d love to act. I feel that it’s another naked, mysterious challenge, like jazz. It kind of intrigues me in the same way.
