i keep trying to memorize every detail of the moments i live in. in the soreness of my legs from standing so long at a concert, the chill of the night, the patterns of a tablecloth, the oily texture in my mouth after eating fried bananas. i keep trying to memorize the feelings, the quiet contentedness, the laughter, the excitement. i keep trying to memorize the people, their smiles, the way they speak, what makes them laugh. i’m constantly on the cusp of the next part of my life and that’s just so.. strange. but it makes it so much easier to find happiness no matter what’s happening to me, in a way? because i’m already kind of looking at life with those rose-colored glasses of nostalgia, simply because i know these are times i’ll never be able to live again, and these are people i might not always have, and that makes it so much easier to appreciate everything i might miss later. 

good big bro lance

so i just wanted to talk about the space mall episode for a lil bit..like…its such good evidence that lance is a really good older brother/older brother figure???

like, i mean yeah, lance probably also wants to buy the earth video games (which probably will also help with his homesickness for earth) but he’s also helping pidge out, which is really nice??

like…he’s out here just digging for change in a mall fountain for who knows who long, getting pruny feet and touching gross fountain water, straight-up dolphining a coin out of the air for that last bit of coin just for the money to buy pidge those games. it’s embarrassing, honestly, but he doesn’t mind it.

ok just imagine lance watching his little siblings/cousins, and they ask for a popsicle on a hot summer day in cuba. lance shuffles around for change but he doesn’t have anything but a few pennies in his pocket. so he like…scavenges for change? maybe even busks for a few minutes ‘til someone tosses him a few dollars just so he can buy ice cream for these kids? like, he’ll definitely be embarrassed if some cute girl walks by and laughs at him for clawing at the underside of a vending machine but he’ll keep doing it anyway because the kids are cheering him on

just…ugh, i love older brother lance stuff ok ;_;
