Carly: Love life and it will love you back!
Carly: Live for today because tomorrow is just a promise, and promises can always be broken.
Carly: In my free time, I really enjoy hanging out with my friends. They're really cool. And I just enjoy being a normal kid.I also like going to the movies. I don't know why. It's not really an obsession, but I love watching them. And I don't watch them once. I have to watch them more than once so I can soak in every detail.
Carly: My parents are a huge deal. They're great people, they support me no matter what. And I don't find it difficult, really. I see a lot of people who have gotten into trouble because they have done some things. But that's not the way I am, that's not the way I was raised, and that's not who I'm going to become. I'm just a normal person, and this is what I enjoy doing. It's not like, "Oh, my God, I just saw myself on TV!" That's just not who I am. I enjoy doing it and then watching it with two or three of my friends, and then hanging out and goofing off afterwards. It's like going and playing soccer; it's a hobby.
