So I was walking in Target today, y’know, just shopping and all that good stuff.
So as we’re passing through the chip aisle, I see this kid that’s roughly my age begging his mom for some chips, and then his mom said something about how too much salt is bad for you, and then at the exACT SAME TIME WE WERE BOTH JUST LIKE
“But we crave that mineral.”
So then the kid slOWLY TURNS TOWARDS ME, HAS THIS SMUG ASS GRIN ON, AND THEN HE JUST KIND OF JUST MUTTERED
“I like your shoelaces.”
And I just kinda had this stupid grin on and managed to respond
“I stole them from the president.”
THEN THE LITTLE SHIT SMILES AGAIN AND HE’S LIKE
“Wanna go get some none pizza left beef later?”
AND I ALMOST CHOKED ON MY OWN SPIT
GUYS HE GAVE ME A HUG AND JUST WALKED AWAY I THINK I MADE A FRIEND
“I created the name ‘Marina and the Diamonds’ [in 2005] and I never envisaged a character, pop project, band or solo artist. I saw a simple group made up of many people who had the same hearts. A space for people with similar ideals who could not fit in to life’s pre-made mold. I was terribly awkward for a long time! I really craved to be part of one thing because I never felt too connected to anybody and now I feel I have that all around me. […] Now the diamonds exist.. they aren’t imaginary anymore.”
(only a portion of the greatness that is Jen and Liam)
I guess the thing that surprised me is that I would never expect to ever have a man this good-looking ever be my best friend. I just would never assume those things could happen, but he is. He’s the most wonderful, lovable, family-oriented, sweet, hilarious, amazing guy. He actually taught me how to be fair and to stand up for myself. It’s my biggest weakness: negotiating. I’m a wimp about standing up for myself and Liam is always fair. He’s always on time, he’s always doing his job, and he’s good about making sure that things stay fair. He’s teaching me to toughen up a little bit. That was important, I need that.
Something I always learned from Jen was to stay in the moment and be honest. Never change for the wrong reasons, just be yourself. That was something so great that I always noticed about Jen; that no matter she was just herself and honest and she enjoyed what she was doing and was happy in the moment. I think that’s why she’s a great actress because she adapts to a situation so easily.
Can we start a thing for when we go to see TFIOS...
that when we sit down in the cinema and you think the person next to you might be a fan from tumblr you simply state the normal : ‘i like your shoelaces’
If someone says this to you, you reply with the normal : 'thanks, i stole them from the president’ but you add ’ with Hazel Grace'
1. by doing this you acknowledge that you are both from tumblr and can become best friends, but most importantly… 2. you are agreeing to offer tissues and when the movie gets really emotional you can hold hands and offer emotional support/ be emotional wrecks together
