You pick up a pebble on the beach – look at it – beautiful. Don’t try and get a sermon out of it – sermons and stones and god and everything be down – just enjoy it, don’t feel that you got to salve your conscience by saying that this is for the advancement of your aesthetic understanding. Enjoy the pebble. If you do that you become healthy, you become able to be a loving, helpful human being. But if you can’t do that, if you can only do things because they are somehow, you are going to get something out of it, you are a vulture.

Imagine Your OTP

Person A works as a masseuse. Person B works in the place right next to Person A as a Karate instructor. Person A despises because Person B’s Karate classes are way too fucking loud, but then until B comes in and asks for a massage. A gives B a massage, and then realises later who it is and that B is under a whole lot of stress. After that, A is way less judgemental of B, and they even go so far as to get coffee together… Which turns into something more, eventually.

No title ..... Just got in the mood to write...

I don’t care what the weather is like
I’ve got an app for that
Tell me about your day and what possessed you to wear this hat
Don’t ask me how work was
And don’t inquire about my finals
Tell me a corny ass joke or play old Jackson 5 vinyls
Small talk doesn’t satisfy my mental
Not even a little
Profess to me your darkest secrets
Show me why you fighting those demons
You don’t have to be some kind of genius
Just be frequent
Suck me in and show me a sense of deepness
Pour your past into the open
So I know exactly what to say when you feel broken
Maybe I’m just looking for reasons to make you stay
Like to two strangers locked in deep conversation at an Internet cafe
Teach me things I couldn’t even fathom in my own mind
Show me why your arrival was so perfectly timed …

I feel like young girls are told, I don’t know, that they have to be this kind of princess and fragile. It’s bullshit… I identify much more with being a warrior, a fighter…There’s nothing wrong with being afraid. It’s not the absence of fear, it’s overcoming it. Sometimes you’ve got to blast through and have faith.
