I felt like Alan Turing's story was such an important story to tell, and it was so wonderful to write the script and other people find it and say, 'I never heard this story.' It's such an amazing story that people don't believe it.
I felt like I could take the responsibility and make the Nas movement bigger and not keep it confined to the Tri-State area, so to speak. He allowed me to do that. When we were together, we made a lot of noise, and I made him an international star.
I felt like I could write about quiet, self-contained moments and also about those moments when the world rushes in again.
I felt like I couldn't fully be myself and accepted in my family, so I would lock myself in my room on a Saturday night and watch 'Saturday Night Live,' and that was, like, the best thing that ever happened to me.
I felt like I couldn't wallow in self-pity forever. I can't beat myself up forever.
I felt like I didn't have any pizzazz, and a lot of girls say I'm out of this world, so I was like I guess I'm from Mars.
I felt like I evolved into a great singles wrestler in ECW because of the opportunities to speak and wrestle longer matches.
I felt like I got more comfortable on 'Idol' when I just started being myself and not trying to be what I thought I had to be.
I felt like I got more comfortable on Idol when I just started being myself and not trying to be what I thought I had to be.
I felt like I had experienced a lot of things in the first chapter of my life, and I wanted it to inspire and motivate people, so I just started writing.
I felt like I had kind of played it out, and I wanted to see what was next, and then came Mythbusters. You know, it's the best job I've ever had, on its worst day it's better than anything else, but it's a huge amount of responsibility, and there are days when just going into work and building something from someone else's drawing sounds like going back to heaven.
I felt like I had lost something. But not something silly, like my keys or my gum; more like my arm or my foot, something that really mattered. Like something that I could live without, but would make life much harder if it were missing. And life is hard enough. Life is hard enough with everything we're given.
I felt like I had never really heard of a story that reflected the stuff I was going through as a mom. I came up with an idea for a story about motherhood that I would want to read.
I felt like I had to be conscious of myself as a girl for the first time. I had to be more feminine. I had to look a certain way. And it's something that you want to suffer in silence, but I would go onto movie sets and they would bring out bras that were basically binders, because there were continuity problems between months.
I felt like I had two fathers. I had my real father and the father in my head.
I felt like I haven't had the typical experience of a novelist whose book becomes a movie.
I felt like I needed to come to terms with the decision I'd made to let go of my family. What do you do when you want to be loyal to your family but you feel that loyalty to them is in conflict somehow with loyalty to yourself?
I felt like I really came into my own when I became a mom. My entire world changed.
I felt like I should salute. If only I knew how.
