My personal philosophy . . . I don’t have a motto, but I always . . . I always . . . I always dream. I always take risks. I try to keep my eyes open.
They can be very subtle. It can be in how we construct something or, you know, in business deals that we . . . that we’ve made or, you know, just moving in with my boyfriend. You know, it’s . . . they all affect each other. Not really any particular _____. I decided to move to London when I was 17 and just go to school there instead of sort of furthering an academic education. It’s keeping . . . That keeping your eyes opening and listening to others, and having a dialogue with others. And then that’s . . . That’s my motto. And the risk I take is . . . It can expose you to a lot that can distract or affect you. I’m a very open, sensitive person. But also you have to have that conversation and then go into isolation, take that and filter it, and then go back to being a sponge.
No. I don’t dismiss religion or faith, you know. I’m still alive on this planet, and I think that in its truest forms, you know, in some way or other I’ve lived by a sort of mix of many religions. You know I always believe in bettering who I can be and striving to a higher place from there on my time on the planet. So in some ways, I don’t know if that will affect any possibility of an afterlife in any way; but I think that’s pretty similar to foundations of Christianity, and Judaism, and you know, and Buddhism. I don’t have one God that I . . . that I look up to.
