I used to think

That there arecheerleaders and there are artkids. And then I realized that’sreally silly and sometimes youfeel like a cheerleader andsometimes you feel like an artkid, and there’s a part of every-one that feels lonely or like anoutcast. The idea that feelingconfident and feeling misunder-stood are mutually exclusivereally bugs me. So a lot of whatRookie is about is just showingthat you can be both and youcan like whatever you want.
