A rare sight: Congress working a full work-week
  • 4,700 the number of days since January 1, 1978 that both chambers of Congress have been in session at the exact same time, out of 13,000-plus total days. To put that another way, Congress works a little fewer than half of all weekdays on average—and they really like taking Fridays off. source

—  20 things I’ve learned the hard way and need to remember
Currently, there are 7,260,103,550 people on this earth. That’s means 7,260,103,550 hearts, emotions, voices, faces, and characters. Out of all of those 7,260,103,550 people, I only want you. I want your heart beating next to mine. I want to lay on your chest and just fall asleep listening to the pound that makes me smile because I know you’re alive. I want to be happy with you. I want to love you like no one ever has before. From those 7,260,103,550 different, unique voices, yours is the only one I want to hear. It’s so beautiful, and just by saying hey to me when we start Skype, instantly, I smile because I’ve fallen in love with your voice. When I walk around, I see all the different faces. There’s 14,520,207,100 eyes and ears, 7,260,103,550 noses, lips, and smiles, but your face is the only one I want to wake up next to, after I’ve spent the night looking at you and thinking about just how perfect you are. And your character, your personality. I want to be around it all of the time. Your goofiness makes me laugh until I can’t breathe. The way you mock me makes me smile so wide. When I’m upset, you’re always there for me, listening carefully to each word I mumbled from behind my tears. Mostly, I love how much you love me. We argue a lot of who loves who more, but I will always truly know I love you more. I would crumble to pieces without you.
—  Just mee
I’m tired of defining my life
Based on the amount of times
I succeed and fail each day.
I’m tired of tallying
My relapses into bad habits.
I’m tired of limiting myself
To keep from feeling and loving so hard.
I’m tired of existing as though
Numbers of any kind,
Make me good or bad
Or wrong or right.
I’m putting away those concepts;
My mind will finally get its rest.
Because I am no longer,
And have never been
The sum or differences
Of these things.
I am just me.
I will just be.
