Vanity Fair.

The most famous questionnare in the literary world.
1. What is your idea of perfect happiness?
Being in love. Nothing greater than that feeling of perfect harmony. And even when that feeling is fleeting, you can always remember it crystal clear.

Not being happy. Not having my friends and family around me. And death, I know it's the next great adventure but I'm sad about what I'd leave behind and undone.

Jealousy and short temper.

Unwarrented hate. Its in human nature to judge everyone we see, but to look and hate, and really hate, is amazingly unfair and unattractive.

Mary-Kate Olsen. Being herself for all 23 years when all the elements were against her. And becoming an icon.
