Manic Pixie Dream Girl

“That bubbly, shallow cinematic creature that exists solely in the fevered imaginations of sensitive writer-directors to teach broodingly soulful young men to embrace life and its infinite mysteries and adventures”.

MANDY: Random destruction makes you think of me?
LIP: Yeah, it was beautiful.

Peyton Sawyer, One Tree Hill

The thing is I don’t think of my music as depressing. It’s the opposite really. You know, it comforts me. It tells me that it’s okay to feel scared or alone and that I’m not alone in how I feel and that’s part of being alive. It’s like a rainy day you know? A rainy day makes most people sad. Okay, you’re stuck inside, it’s all gloomy, no sunny walk in the park going on but I have to say I love a rainy day. It’s an excuse to stay inside and drink hot chocolate, hang out in my room or read a book or just have a day alone. I don’t want to go on a walk in the park anyway. I don’t know what that says about me, just because I find comfort in silence and a little sadness. I don’t think that makes me a morose person. I’m just more comfortable in that place. I don’t know, maybe I’m just kidding myself
