Quotes

Nho-Jann Paranhas quoted2 months ago
There you had it. Right up front. I wasn’t one of the popular girls. I read books. All the time. In between classes. During study hall. After school, before dinner, after work and studying, before bed, I read. On weekends, I read. I went babysitting. And I read. Romances. Always romances.

I looked around. After having been in class with the same kids for four long years, it was still a little weird to me being in a classroom where I didn’t know a single soul.
Nho-Jann Paranhas quoted2 months ago
The room buzzed with energy. Freshman energy. After all life was just beginning. The future was more question than answer—resting largely on the success or failure of the next four years in classrooms just like that one.

Did I stand out?

I didn’t have to be there to obtain a future.

I had my future planned. I knew what I wanted and I wasn’t going to be swayed.

It was the fall of 1977. I had my whole world lying before me
