Reflecting on past relationships: “I never want to talk about relationships I’m in or that are ending or have ended. It’s hard enough to be with someone by yourself, let alone with an audience. Growing up is hard. Sometimes it makes me sad that I can’t have a private moment. Because of Twitter and Instagram, there’s a whole other element where everybody can comment on what you’re doing and no one knows the real story. That’s hard… I think I know what’s true, and I know what happened in my own life and so do the people who love me and who I love.”

On ending relationships—losing a best friend along & a romantic partner: “I think that no matter who you are or what you do or wherever in the world you are, anything ending is hard. Losing something is hard. And the only thing I can say for that is—What can I say for that? I’m realizing that life is highs and lows. I’m trying to ride them out and live somewhere in the middle. When you’re low, you think it’s never going to end. When you’re high, you’re so scared of it ending. And I’ve lived in both of those places for too long.”

On enjoying single life: “It’s been fun to really choose how I’m spending my time. I’ve had days when I’ve woken up and haven’t had to do anything other than what I want to do, and that’s been so fun. And something I’ve lost touch with over the years. To get to feel like time is mine is a really new thing for me.”

On how she spends her time in her private life: “I spend hours on the phone with my mom. She puts everything into perspective. She’s never once judged me. I also have the most amazing group of friends. They come over and we lie in bed or talk, watch TV, or read short stories to each other. We open a bottle of wine. To me, that’s the best whenever anything is going on—to have everyone come over and be together.”

On her book club, Belletrist (cofounded with BFF Karah Preiss): “As a teenager, I felt like if you liked to read, you were a nerd, and if you cared about shoes, you were a girly girl. I wanted to create a place where you could do both and be both. We’re living in a time when you can’t opt out of being smart. You have to pay attention. You have to read. You have to nourish your brain every way you can.”
