Because She Wasn't Boring

"... she put on her choicest pair of earrings and a great deal of audacity and rouge and went into battle. She flirted because it was fun to flirt... she covered her face with powder and paint because she didn’t need it and she refused to be bored chiefly because she wasn’t boring. She was conscious that the things she did were the things she had always wanted to do. "
-Zelda Fitzgerald 1922


Zelda Fitzgerald was American writer, painter and dancer. She was born on 24th July, 1900 in Montgomery, USA. She attended The Margaret Booth School and Sidney Lanier High School and was quickly recognized because of her great beauty and ballet talent.
In July 1918 she met F. Scott Fitzgerald, who later became one of the most known American writers of this century. They were married on 3rd April, 1920.
