But I don't think that's unlike what any kid goes through as they're growing up. But this business sort of magnifies whatever you would have turned into. I think that they're people who struggled as child actors that would have struggled no matter what they chose to do in life.

29. If there were ever a reality show about my life, it would be pretty boring. Twitter is sort of my reality show version of me. Reality TV has a demystifying element that scares me. The fun part of being in this business for me is about escaping and being able to portray different people.

I don't like to do too much self-promotion on there - when I first joined Twitter, I started following celebrities, and they self-promoted so much that I just un-followed them. So on my personal account, I really just try to share a piece of who I am with people, and be a good neighbor.

33. I have other accounts - I have an account for the television show and for the clothing line because I figure if they're interested in that aspect of my life, then they can follow those accounts.

41. We were in Brooklyn and we stopped by a neighbor's house…there were these dogs there and I guess they had puppies, she was going to keep one but said she may have to put the rest to sleep if she couldn't find homes for them, so if we knew anyone that wanted puppies to let her know. I asked what she meant by "putting them to sleep", so I asked and my mom being as subtle as possible said it means they are going to kill them. So we took home one named Pluto.

44. First, accept sadness. Realize that without losing, winning isn't so great.

The guilt that my parents gave up their dreams, friendships, and the only life they knew to make *my* triumphs a possibility. The guilt that my brother had to deal with having a famous sister. It was not easy, but thank God I had them to remind me what is important in life.

46. Baseball is, in many ways, like a boyfriend or spouse. You can love him, you *should* love him, but you need to learn that he exists without you, and you without him. You need to learn the same thing about baseball, that as much as you care, you need to be able to step back.
