come as you are, express yourself any way you choose
People would say that it’s impossible to have a private pool in the city, unless you were some sort of rich mogul and had it on the roof of your penthouse or something. But it’s not illegal to have a really clean dumpster, and if you want to fill it with water, and if you want to get in it… well, that’s your prerogative. People always say they can’t do things, that they’re impossible. They just haven’t been creative enough. This pool is a triumph of imagination. That’s how you win at life, Gin. You have to imagine your way through. Never say something can’t be done. There’s always a solution, even if it’s weird.
