This life is what you make it. No matter what, you’re going to mess up sometimes, it’s a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you’re going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends - they’ll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, some go. The ones that stay with you through everything - they’re your true best friends. Don’t let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they’ll come and go too. And baby, I hate to say it, most of them - actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can’t give up because if you give up, you’ll never find your soulmate. You’ll never find the half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn’t mean you’re gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don’t, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life is a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about.

I love Lupita, Tika, Viola, Janelle, Aja(HTGAWM). I love looking at them. When I was growing up, there wasn’t to much dark skin girl representation. Im 23, so that lets use lighter girls in the videos started to become a trend, and I hated my color, because I couldn’t understand why people would make fun of me cause I was darker! So everyday after school for 8th grade to 11th grade. I cried about my skin, I hated it. But I had to learn to love it, even now I still learning to love it! So I glad there are people like Lupita, Tika, Viola, Aja because I can see me in them! Especially Viola and Lupita. I see how care free they are, and they’re holding their head up high and being this beautiful dark skin woman and owning it, not being it feeling ashamed and I love that!

6 Stages of Loving You

It wasn’t unusual for Troye to pine for random strangers. He’s done it, at least every time he walks out of the house. But this one feels different. Everything about it is odd.

He’s on his way to class when he spots the green eyed fiend. His sandy hair is covered in a beanie, and he’s wearing the most spectacular smile Troye has ever seen. This gorgeous stranger holds his head up high, like he owns the fucking place.

And when he passes Troye, it isn’t anything special. Like Troye’s a pebble, and he’s a mountain. But for a fraction of a second, their eyes meet, when he crosses the street. It’s a beat longer than it needs to be, and Troye thinks about it when the nights wear on too long. When he’s studying, and his mind drifts. He finds himself doodling sparkling green in the margins of his lecture notes.
