"I spent my life learning to feel less. Every day I felt less. Is that growing old, or is it something worse? You cannot protect yourself from sadness without protecting yourself from happiness." Jonathon Safran Foer My name is Mollie, and my life is very messy and full of unrequited loves, shaky hands and big, belly laughs. I write because I feel the need to make something that lasts. I'm a teenage girl, in a town I hate: the same, old story everyone knows. So, that's that.
