Rest your heart, rest your legs
I wish I could have one more day with you. One more day where I could watch the hummingbirds with you, sort through your hot wheels collection together, go to the dollar store, hug you, and this one last time, I wouldn’t say no to a game of Skip Bo. I wish I had told you I loved you more often. I wish you never thanked me for coming over and spending time with you, because I was never too...

The universe has a way of evening things out; the moment you gain love, you lose another. I lost my grandpa today. Where do I start? What do I say? I could not have asked for a better grandfather. I will feel forever blessed that I got to share him with my cousins. He went the way he wanted; his heart just stopped. That’s that. He lived for his children and his grandchildren. He lived...

I’ve always considered myself the type who gets their heart broken, not the one who goes around doing the breaking. He said all relationships take this much work but I disagree. I wish I didn’t have to leave it the way we did but I hope he’ll understand that this is not easy for me either. I don’t wish heart break on my worst enemy let alone a loved one. I’ll...

What the hell is water?
This, I submit, is the freedom of a real education, of learning how to be well-adjusted. You get to consciously decide what has meaning and what doesn’t. You get to decide what to worship. Because here’s something else that’s weird but true: in the day-to-day trenches of adult life, there is actually no such thing as atheism. There is no such thing as not worshipping. Everybody...
don't count the feathers, just count the wings
Don’t you just hate it when people surprise you? Usually it restores my faith in humanity, but this time it just made this seemingly endless road a lot longer.
The Tortise and the Scorpion
Nathan, at one of the outlying tables, His feet tangled up in the disc jockey’s cables, Surveyed the room, as unseen as a ghost, While he mulled over what he might say for his toast. Though the couple had asked him for this benediction, It seemed at odds with parking him here by the kitchen. That he’d shown up at all was still a surprise. And not just to him; it was there in the eyes Of the guests...
That’s the crazy thing about it. Breaking up with someone is literally the...

This happened →
I’ve been approached with an opportunity that most people would jump at. Most people wouldn’t think twice about taking. An opportunity most people would feel so fortunate for having. Since this is the case, why am I so afraid of taking it? I’m afraid that by accepting this opportunity, I will close the door to what my heart wants to do. This isn’t the case, however....
oldschmuelsong: Veronica Mars loves sloths.
Amidst my day of paper pushing i found myself searching for cheap flights within Europe. Paris, I miss you. Paris makes up at least 70% of my tumblr posts. I would give up my first born to be laying in the Luxembourg gardens right now. After, maybe I would sit on the steps of Sacree Coeur and watch the sun set. Just an passing thought..
"that's why cliches exist; so we can fulfill them"
The last time this happened I became empowered. I adopted the “yeah? well, fuck you” strategy. My method of coping this time? cuddle up in my blankets, which still smell like him, and hibernate. I don’t want anyone else. Thanks to you I’ve been unable to: curb my hunger pangs, wear my contacts due to my eyes being perma swollen from all the crying, exercise, attend...
This is my fish.
I can no longer care for my thoughts unless they’re thoughts of you– This American Life
Don’t ever tell anybody anything. If you do, you start missing everybody....
“You know what’s upsetting?”, my friend announced. ”What?”, I responded. “The fact that I’ll never be able to be an astronaut.” “Well, do you want to be an astronaut?” I asked her. “No, but did you know that in order to become astronaut you have to have a Phd in something, anything, and then once you’re the best of...

Stay hungry, stay foolish
Vancouver then and now →
I always feel a false sense of superiority after I email the Solons. Mostly because I know I should have done it a long time ago. Life just gets away with you, and there’s not always something interesting worth reporting. I should be more diligent though, little girls grow up fast and the last thing I want is a disconnect. I left a chunk of my heart in France. By now I hope it has grown...
This is the loveliest letter I have ever recieved:
“So don’t be boring, don’t not have fun, don’t be responsible, don’t be irresponsible, embrace the gaps, touch things that look dirty, smell fresh laundry once in a while, read something in another language, dream in French, spend a day colouring with the girls, speak English once in a while, stay accessible, stay hilarious, imagine things all the time, date someone with the name Pierre, or...
