|Ali:||I'm sitting in my apartment in running gear crying over my CV.|
|Breanna:||Add to that that the title of one of the Globe's fashion articles is "the future of fashion looks white (denim that is)" and life really is worth crying over. White denim? No.|
|Ali:||UGH. It started last summer. As a girl with hips, no. No no no no.|
|Breanna:||Everywhere I look I see people dressed all in white. White denim and white top? No. Absolutely not. You look like a tampon.|
Don’t be afraid to be a fool. Remember, you cannot be both young and wise. Young people who pretend to be wise to the ways of the world are mostly just cynics. Cynicism masquerades as wisdom, but it is the farthest thing from it. Because cynics don’t learn anything. Because cynicism is a self-imposed blindness, a rejection of the world because we are afraid it will hurt us or disappoint us. Cynics always say no. But saying yes begins things. Saying yes is how things grow. Saying yes leads to knowledge. “Yes” is for young people. So for as long as you have the strength to, say yes.
