I know a lot of people think L.A. and they see a picture in their head, but those people obviously don't know me, because I sit on a couch every day. That's my idea of a good time - just being in a sweat suit.
I always knew I wanted to be in a band.
I'm not sorry for who I am.
People perceive punk rock in the sense of Sid Vicious, all strung-out, crazy and insane.
My mom was a huge Adam and the Ants fan. My granddad listened to a lot of Motown and Elvis and Johnny Cash. So I was kind of well-rounded.
No, I'm not a vegetarian. I do eat that way. I actually eat vegan quite a lot. I feel better when I eat that way, and I think there's been a lot of proof that's come up over the last however many years, that you can't deny, I don't think, that meat or dairy aren't all that good for us.
'Looper' was so brilliant, and it took me forever to finally see it, but the way that movie ends and the message behind that is so selfless.

To anyone that ever told you you're no good.. they're no better.
Any struggle or pain that you experience just gets you to the top, and you can't get there without making the climb. A few years later, you won't remember exactly the way the pain felt or how long it took, you'll just remember the view from the top. In fact, you might smile at the fact you had to work to get there.
Now I'm told this is life, and pain's just a simple compromise.
Seems like a lot of my generation as a whole is more concerned with being the cool kid; sarcastic, smug, or just all together impenetrable. So anyway, it's not always comfortable to be like, the dorky, happy girl at the party... but that's me.
Honesty is what brings people to change and that's what i'm trying to learn in life.
sometimes you get run down. sometimes life throws dirt in your eyes and it stings and you can't see for a few minutes. even after you get it out your eyes are all red and your vision is shitty... but eventually, whether through tears or maybe just time... you start to see even clearer than before. life is not always good. which is why music exists. why i believe God exists. and why there's always a pint of coconut milk ice cream in my freezer.
No boy is worth your teenage years!." "For me to be in love with someone means that I have to accept who I am, and not allow another person to define me. And if someone loves me in spite of all that, then that's a start.
I'm in a band. I don't go to church every Sunday. I love punk rock music. Sometimes I use swear words a lot. I respect and admire gay men and women. I'm obsessed with horror films. I know what shame feels like. And guess what old man? Jesus is still my Savior.
For me, embracing my own power is about embracing my right to be an individual.
Sometimes it takes a good fall to really know where you stand.

I believe it's important to stay young at heart, to have faith in what might seem impossible and to have goals beyond your current abilities or temporary means.
The biggest lesson I've learned is, 'It's okay.' It's okay for me to be kind to myself. It's okay to be wrong. It's okay to get mad. It's okay to be flawed. It's okay to be happy. It's okay to move on.
If you ever think about giving up, remember why you held on for so long.
I believe music is a place everyone of us can go to.

I have the ability to build myself up or break myself down. I stay positive. Strength comes from within.
I think all of us, at some point early on in our lives, knew that we wanted to create music. We are still really young and sometimes we do feel like we have to prove were as great as all the rest of the bands -old and young. But we just do what we love and people seem to be really excited about it.
Support music every day because there isn't a day music won't be there for you!
