“if only there was air! everything’s going dark. am I going to die…light?”

Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won’t either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness. Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could.
—  Louise Erdrich, The Painted Drum LP
Sometimes you’ve got to bleed to know,
You’re alive and have a soul.
—  Twenty one pilots
Don’t you ever get the feeling that all your life is going by and you are not taking advantage of it?
—  Ernest Hemingway, The Sun Also Rises
why can’t girls be girls? I believe girls should look however they want. dress however they want. and just be whoever they want. plain and simple. whoever says you have to wear your hair a certain way and do your makeup a certain way, is wrong. you are you…you are your own person…you can do whatever you want because it’s your body. your hair. your face. yours. to all the girls out there, continue to do you and if you haven’t been, than begin too. it’s the best decision I ever made for MYSELF.
