Response 1, Week 2 . Sydney's junkyard quotes
My favorite is the quote from Jarhead, which is a great film, "We look to the north, we wait for them- we labor in wait." This quote reminds me of all the times when my patience has failed me, when your struggling while doing nothing, like waiting for the bus or an answer to a life changing question. The Harry Potter quote is also very much applicable to life, the way we all hold back sometimes for fear of others knowing what we truly are, the anxiety that accompanies this unwillingness to show our true colors. I fear that I've played this game a lot with the people in my life, hiding behind sarcasm and wit to avoid a connection with someone, to avoid a feeling I don't want to feel.
