I fucking love the people that no matter what happens still turn around and wake up the next day with a smile on their face, stepping up to the plate and putting one foot in front of the other no matter how heavy their legs feel. I admire the passion of people in this world who give everything they’ve got for their dreams, no matter how impossible they may seem; I admire the passion for life those people have.
The ones who have spent too many nights crying alone, but still walk with their head held high even when people try and drag them down? They’re the inspirations of this world. They’re the ones people should envy.
To the ones who are down for the count, stand up. You’re not meant to live life on your knees. There are no ways to turn back the clock in this life. Find your passion, the things you’d die for; the people you’ll love til your last days, find the things that keep you going. Find hope in hopeless situations, have faith in life and don’t give in, no matter what. Stand up for what you believe in, change your life for good. Fall head over heels in love, get your heart broken and put it back together again. Give yourself wholly to someone else. Don’t let anything or anyone get in your way.
It sounds cruel, but I’m glad that my first relationship ended the way it did: clean, hard to say, but the right thing to do at the end. While I admire and envy those who find someone right with the first go, I think I am the kind that needs to learn to appreciate. To know what I might want from a relationship, to know that thinking compromise will solve everything is useless if I don’t actually do it.
I wish I didn’t have to hurt you to learn this, but thank you. I truly want you to be happy.
If you want to do something with your life, if you really want to do it, just do it. I promise that you can. You just have to do it. And when you do, you’ll be happier for it. -Ben Davis — somethingsubtle
I need to learn how to interact with the opposite gender. How to meet a guy, talk to him, and not consider anything beyond friends. It’s not lust and it’s not desperation. It’s the fact that I have less than 10 guy friends and every time one of them talks to me, it’s such a new experience that my mind immediately considers whether he would be a good father for my children. What the hell is that? What the hell is love if my mind is doing everything my heart is supposed to do?!
Seriously, me. Stop doing that. Please?
Geez. The woes of an all-girls high school graduate.

Everybody is identical in their secret unspoken belief that way deep down they are different from everyone else. — David Foster Wallace, Infinite Jest (via honeyforthehomeless)
What do you look like?

Do you have any siblings?
Will you make me laugh and smile like an idiot?
Can you be my best friend?
What kind of dreams do you have?
How will we meet?
I don’t know who you are or when you’ll enter my life (or how long you might’ve already been in it) but I’d like to meet you, Mr. The One. Until then, I guess I’ll just have to wait and be surprised :)
Some friends are irreplaceable. No matter how much time you spent apart, how many different people you meet, your roots come back to those people. Even though you know the future is uncertain and things will change, you don’t have to fear losing them because even if you do, what they already gave you is enough to last a lifetime.
I love my friends <3
