steal the only breath from my lungs
but if i had your faith
i’d be fearless
Twenty years ago, Brenda Walsh and Kelly Taylor changed high school forever. Zits, bad hair, and JCPenney all vanished overnight. Teeth began whitening, bodies started transforming, hair grew even silkier, IQs skyrocketed, and by the time the kids of Beverly Hills, 90210 were finishing college, the average American teenager was extinct. Suddenly, they all looked like J.Crew swimsuit models (The O.C.), spoke like fortysomething shrinks (Dawson’s Creek), got the grades of Yale cum laudes (Gilmore Girls), and threw spirals like NFL heroes (Friday Night Lights). And then, just as TV had finally perfected a new master race, Gossip Girl came along and made everything that much worse. [ Nylon ]
“There was a girl who came up to me the other day on the street, sort of bloomed out of the pavement in front of me like she’d apparated, and she must have been in her early twenties, and she said to me, ‘You are my childhood.’ About the nicest thing anyone has ever said to me.” -J.K. Rowling.
