“You’re the least crazy person I’ve ever dated.”

“You’re the least crazy person I’ve ever dated.”

One year later, I had a panic attack while snorkeling off the coast of a deserted Thai island in the Andaman Sea.

I fancied myself as Clementine in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

Too many guys think I’m a concept, or I complete them, or I’m gonna make them alive. But I’m just a fucked-up girl who’s looking for my own peace of mind. Don’t assign me yours. — Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

“Yeah, she’s crazy. But her crazy’s beautiful to me.”

“ Her day starts with a coffee
And ends with a wine.
Takes forever getting ready,
She’s never on time, for anything”

“Yeah, she’s crazy
But her crazy’s beautiful to me”

Yeah, she’s crazy
She’s crazy
Yeah, she’s crazy
But her crazy’s beautiful to me
Her crazy’s beautiful to me

My husband doesn’t call me crazy.

“Do you still think I’m the least crazy person you’ve ever dated?”
