What they said: Jeanette Walls

Author of memoir The Glass Castle.

I’ve got a lot on my mind and all of it feels like bullshit. I can’t stop thinking about my therapist, I keep feeling like I need to have a confrontation with my mom, I have to self-inspect and I sometimes I think maybe I really am done with alcohol and then other times I’m thinking about how I should stop smoking so much, and then I went online today and was reading some “change yourself” articles, you know, be different than the person you are now articles and I feel so confused. 425 more words
