Freiheit ist immer die Freiheit der Andersdenkenden.
- Rosa Luxemburg

Confused child -> Confused adolescent -> Confused whatever-it-is-I-am-now. Hate not being in control of my surrounds, love being surprised. Sometimes on top of things, sometimes completely lost at sea. Wishing I didn't have to grow up, ambivalently anticipating the world beyond education. Interested in a lot of things, still feeling like I don't know anything at all. I thought I was supposed to be getting an education... I'm only more confused.
