“Things change. And friends leave. Life doesn’t stop for anybody.”
The Perks of Being a Wallflower (2012)
This quote is tattooed on my back and it’s my favorite quote from all of literature.
When I met Stephen Chbosky at a book signing and showed him a picture of my tattoo, he stood up and gave me a hug and seemed as excited as I was. It took a lot in me not to ugly in front of him. He said he was so excited that he coudln’t remember hwo to spell the word “tattoo” (he wrote “thanks for the tattoo” when he signed my book). And when he saw me leaving, he said again, “That means a lot to me! Thanks again!”
Here’s the picture we took together:
And here’s the picture I showed him of my tattoo (it’s all red because I had just gotten it done):
