It’s Day 2 of #LoveYourShelf week and today’s theme is:
Love is Love ❤️💛💚💙💜
Openly Straight by Bill Konigsberg and Unbecoming by Jenny Downham are two LGBTQ+ books that remind us that all shades of love should be recognized and celebrated today and everyday.
It doesn’t matter who you love, but that you love.
I’ve been in… a really gay mood lately, playing Jenny by Studio Killers on repeat so I finally decided to sing it myself. This has been my second time singing it aloud ever and I recorded it and actually kinda liked it??… minus forgetting the tune sometimes ahhh. Also pardon the fact I don’t have any background music; if I could play any instrument I would’ve totally done that.
‘you dont know me’ she says as she repeatedly bang her fists against the hard chest that belonged to the man that had seen her like this before.
‘you dont understand’ she excuses with her eyes closed shut and her breathing hitching every time she feels a new tear forming on her cheek.
'you dont care’ she accused while his hands gently gripped her wrists to cease her attack on his torso. his eyes were soft as he stared down at her.
'you dont love me’ she sobbed before digging her face into the chest she had just abused. her hands were trembling and her tears stained the fabric, but neither cared. he wrapped her arms around her small body, bringing her closer so he can lay a gentle kiss at the top of her head.
he shakes his head before placing a finger under her chin to force her eyes to look upon his, 'i hate that you think so low of me because if you really think that, then you really dont know me either’.

“For a minute there it was really good. It was really, really good.
Wasn’t it good? Maybe really, really good things aren’t meant to last
for too long; maybe that’s what makes them all the more sweet, the
temporariness of them.” ―Jenny Han, P.S. I Still Love You
I have a feeling Lara Jean would be a master at making French Macarons…
Don’t let it happen to you, Lara Jean. Don’t get too serious to where things can’t go back. Be in love with Peter if you want, but be careful with your heart. Things feel like they’ll be forever, but they aren’t. Love can go away, or people can, without even meaning to. Nothing is guaranteed.
