if you had a friend who spoke to you in the same way you sometimes speak to yourself, how long would you allow that person to be your friend?

I want to text you. Just to remind you that I’m still here. But then I remember that you know I’m here. You just don’t care.

I once told a joke about a straight person.
They came after me in droves.
Each one singing the same:
Don’t fight fire with fire.

What they mean is: Don’t fight fire with anything.
Do not fight fire with water.
Do not fight fire with foam.
Do not evacuate the people.
Do not sound the alarms.
Do not crawl coughing and choking and spluttering to safety.
Do not barricade the door with damp towels.
Do not wave a white flag out of the window.
Do not take the plunge from several storeys up.
Do not shed a tear for your lover trapped behind a wall of flame.
Do not curse the combination of fuel, heat, and oxygen.
Do not ask why the fire fighters are not coming.

When they say: Don’t fight fire with fire.
What they mean is: Stand and burn.

2014 is half over and

  • -i lost no weight

  • -haven’t made an effort to save money
  • -still ugly
Food doesn’t taste better or worse when documented by Instagram. Laughter is as genuine over Skype as it would be sharing a sofa. Pay attention. Take in nature, hold someone’s hand, read a book. But don’t ever apologize for snapping a photo of a sunrise after a hike, or blogging about the excitement of having a crush, or updating your goodreads account. All of these things are good and should be celebrated. Smile at strangers on the sidewalk and like your friends’ selfies. It’s all good for the human spirit.

She’s just a girl, turned eighteen, she ran away to chase her dreams. They said she wouldn’t make it far, she took a chance and packed her bags, she left town and didn’t look back….so tired of wishing on the stars

i wish there wasn’t a stigma about doing things alone. you can’t go out to eat alone, you can’t see a movie alone, basically anything fun, you’re looked down on for doing alone and it’s so stupid you shouldn’t need other people to validate your decisions
