closer to the truth

You know what’s creepy as fuck? The fact that Dorian Corey says something to the effect of “you never know what skeletons people are hiding in their closet” in Paris is Burning and bitch literally had a fucking mummy in her closet.

I always had hopes of being a big star. But as you get older, you aim a little lower. Everybody wants to make an impression, some mark upon the world. Then you think, you’ve made a mark on the world if you just get through it, and a few people remember your name. Then you’ve left a mark. You don’t have to bend the whole world. I think it’s better to just enjoy it. Pay your dues, and just enjoy it. If you shoot an arrow and it goes real high, hooray for you
