Skittslets makes my day.

My name is Coin. In the "real" world I am Claire. But who's keeping track? Anyway I enjoy long walks on the beach & getting caught in the rain.

No really, I do.

I am a high school senior.

Skittery is my favourite newsie.

My parents keep asking how school was. It's like saying, "How was that drive-by shooting?" You don't care how it was, you're lucky to get out alive.
My So Called Life

You better open the door before I take a hammer to the walls around it.
I cannot let you inside my cell for fear I'll sink the ship and drag us both down.
Motion City Soundtrack

Friendship is thicker than blood.
RENT

& I won't heed the battle call
It puts my back up
Puts my back up against the wall
U2

Being grown up isn't half as fun as
Growing up
The Ataris

I wish I could buy me a spaceship
& fly
Kanye West

Everyone deserves a chance to fly
Wicked

Watch me make up my mind
Instead of my face
Sleater-Kinney

'What if she doesn’t worry about her body and eats enough for all the growing she has to do? She might rip her stockings and slam-dance on a forged ID to the Pogues, and walk home barefoot, holding her shoes, alone at dawn; she might baby-sit in a battered-women’s shelter one night a month; she might skateboard down Lombard Street with its seven hairpin turns, or fall in love with her best friend and do something about it, or lose herself for hours gazing into test tubes with her hair a mess, or climb a promontory with the girls and get drunk at the top, or sit down when the Pledge of Allegiance says stand, or hop a freight train, or take lovers without telling her last name, or run away to sea. She might revel in all the freedoms that seem so trivial to those who take them for granted; she might dream seriously the dreams that seem so obvious to those who grew up with them readily available. Who knows what she would do? Who knows what it would feel like?'
