    I realized that jobs suck, but if you could get up at 6 a.m. and bake your own breakfast, that is very satisfying. I learned the value of giving people little delights [while working at the bagel shop]. Those small details and experiences are the reason why people like luxury cars.

    Money can’t buy you love, but it can buy you an around-the-world air ticket whenever you want. Splitting up with Mat (Collishaw) was incredibly heart breaking, but you have to deal with it. Tough shit. I went to Australia for a few months.
