Perks of Being a Good Friend

“We accept the love we think we deserve”

This quote stayed with me from the first day I read it from “Perks of Being a Wallflower” by Stephen Chbosky. I am excited to see it on the big screen and “feel infinite”.

Mona, my dear friend borrowed the book and when I got it back, I was so freak*n happy! Surprise, surprise, surprise! I got gifts! Small things make my day and receiving letter from friends and loved ones never fail to make my heart pump 2 more extra liters (At times, I feel that my heart is gonna burst from too much excitement).

Thank you so much Mona, if I can change my name to Aster I would. I just love the sound of it, better than A is for Apple.

“So, this is my life. And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and I’m still trying to figure out how that could be”

“It was the kind of kiss that made me know that I was never so happy in my whole life.”

“As you enter the tunnel, the wind gets sucked away, and you squint from the lights overhead. When you adjust to the lights, you can see the other side in the distance just as the sound of the radio fades to nothing because the waves just can’t reach. Then, you’re in the middle of the tunnel, and everything becomes a calm dream. As you see the opening get closer, you just can’t get there fast enough. And finally, just when you think you’ll never get there, you see the opening right in front of you. And the radio comes back even louder than you remember it. And the wind is waiting. And you fly out of the tunnel onto the bridge. And there it is. The city. A million lights and buildings and everything seems as exciting as the first time you saw it.”

“Then I turned around and walked to my room and closed my door and put my head under my pillow and let the quiet put things where they are supposed to be.”

“Sam tapped her hand on the steering wheel. Patrick held his hand outside the car and made air waves. And I just sat between them. After the song finished, I said something. I feel infinite.”
