My cab driver talked my fucking ear off the entire drive home. Talking at me about how he doesn’t have a girlfriend, and women are crazy and don’t know what they want.

I actually got into Drama School when I was 17 and one of the main reasons I didn’t take up the place was that I simply couldn’t afford it.

It’s not impossible but it’s hard. Really hard.
