a good quote though

Where did all those feelings go? People spend their whole lives looking for love. Poems and songs and entire novels are written about it. But how can you trust something that can end as suddenly as it begins?
—  Nicola Yoon, The Sun is Also a Star

Sunlight sprinkled on cheeks
like droplets of water,
just warmer, 
much warmer, 
a delightful kiss.


Clouds drifting leisurely
with squally winds,
ruffling strands of
loosely tied hair
in sync with the
floating white billows.


Warm rays,
with cooler daylight
being slowly replaced
as the sun
sporadically vanishes
behind pacing clouds,
each with a silver lining.


An unforeseen light rain
falling in very fine drops
smudging the ink on
ruled pages filled with
casually scribbled words
jotted down on
early morning strolls.


The sun still in hiding
waiting to be sought,
clandestinely peeking
through the silver edges
of fluffy floating masses
eager to mark May
with a fresh tint of yellow.

—  May, Shikha Singh
Laura was prepared for every question he might ask and is fully prepared to dominate this conversation the way she’s familiar with dominating every conversation with him. She expects her puppy to come to heel. And Emily [Browning]’s performance in the scene is very sly and very sharp in that she is slowly and patiently dismissing his concerns about her death and her infidelity so that she can just start again.

This is what I mean. My feelings of discomfort for that scene doesn’t just come from me hating Laura for being a flawed woman (because I still see you guys throwing those accusations around). My assumptions about Laura’s motivations and intentions when she showed up at Shadow’s hotel room were correct - she just wants to move on without ever having to answer for the things she’s done.

She’s an awful person, so I’m really curious to know why some people are going so hard on those who don’t like Laura. I’m really confused as to why this is even a thing.

Day 3 - favorite quote: “strength begins in understanding your own weakness” - Oz Vessalius

I can’t really say this is my favorite quote, because there are a lot of good ones (some of which I couldn’t find to get the right wording), but this one is definitely good. Oz had a lot of good quotes.

“The key to happiness is low expectations.

I expect nothing when I wake up in the morning. Like, today is gonna probably suck. You know? And if it’s halfway decent, I only can be pleased. 

If you start out every day and you’re like, “today’s gonna be awesome”, as soon as something bad happens, you’re like, “ah, today sucks! it got ruined for me!”  […] 

If my glass has any water in it in the end of the day, I’m happy. Because I start out with an empty glass. I’m like, this is an empty glass, it can only get full.”

- Rhett McLaughlin
