was 20 when i started

Jay-Z, captured listening to Beyoncé giving him a toast on his 37th birthday on December 4, 2006. A year later he would propose to her during his birthday trip to Paris.

“Well, I don’t know where to start… First of all, thanks everybody for coming. A lot of you guys just got the call the other day, and I know y’all had to drop a lot of things just to come. And this wouldn’t be anything without everybody here. And y’all are here because you’re special to Jay; therefore you’re special to me. Everybody he loves, I love… [pauses] This is nothing compared to what you’ve done for me. Not only me, but for everybody here. You’ve taught me so many things. I was 20 years old when we first started dating. You taught me how to be a woman. You taught me how to live. You taught me how to be a friend. You give me so much in life. And this is not enough. It’s not enough that I can do. I just want you to be happy. Every year I am even more in love with you. And I want to spend every day of my life with you. Happy Birthday. And I thank God for you everyday.”

Bridges that Taylor Swift actually created

hey, you call me up again just to break me like a promise, so casually cruel in the name of being honest…

and you come away with a great little story of a mess of a dreamer with the nerve to adore you 

i’ve found time can heal most anything, and you just might find who you’re supposed to be…

and there you are on your knees, begging for forgiveness, begging for me, just like i always wanted, but i’m so sorry…

and the saddest fear comes creeping in, that you never loved me, or her, or anyone, or anything yeah

and for the first time, what’s past is past..

this is falling in love in the cruelest way, this is falling for you when you are world’s away…

call a cab, lose my number, you’re about to lose your girl…

and what do you do when the one who means the most to you… is the one who didn’t show…

this is a state of grace, this is the worthwhile fight, love is a ruthless game unless you play it good and right…

you took the time to memorise me, my fears, my hopes, and dreams i just like hanging out with you all the time…

two headlights shine through the sleepless night, and i will get you i’ll get you alone, your name has echoed through my mind and i just think you should think you should know that nothing safe is worth the drive and i will follow you follow you home…

we made a quite a mess babe, it’s probably better off this way, and i confess babe, in my dreams you’re touching my face, and asking me if i wanna try again with you, and i almost do…

distance, timing, breakdown, fighting, silence, train runs off its tracks, kiss me try to fix it, could you just try to listen… hang up, give up, for the life of us we can’t get back…

but i took your matches before fire could catch me so don’t look now… i’m shining like fireworks over your sad empty town…

my thoughts will echo your name until i see you again, these are the words i held back as i was leaving too soon, i was enchanted to meet you..

time turns flames to embers, you’ll have new september’s, every one of us has messed up too…

and i hope the sun shines and its a beautiful day, and something reminds you you wished you had stayed, you can plan for a change in weather and time, but i never planned on you changing your mind…

will you take a moment, promise me this, that you’ll stand by me forever, but if god forbid fate should step in, and force us into a goodbye, if you have children someday, when they point to the pictures, please tell them my name, tell them how the crowds went wild, tell them how i hope they shine..

remember when you hit the brakes too soon, 20 stitches in the hospital room, when you started crying baby i did too, when the sun came up i was looking at you, remember when you couldn’t take the heat, i walked out i said I’m setting you free but the monsters turned out to be just trees, and when the sun came up you were looking at me…

you were all i wanted, but not like this….

you’ll see me in hindsight, tangled up with you all night, burnin it down, someday when you leave me i bet these memories will follow you around..

remind me how it used to be, pictures in frames of kisses on cheeks, and say you want me….

your smile, my ghost, i fell to my knees, when you’re young you just run, but you come back to what you need…

now that I’m clean, i’m never gonna risk it…

i reached for you but you were gone, i knew i had to go back home, you search the world for something else to make you feel like what we had, and in the end in wonderland we both went mad…

PSA For All English/Literacy Teachers

Stop having kids take notes and log their pages in their independent reading book that they are reading for fun

the entire point of a book is to enjoy the story, and thats kind of defeating the point of being able to be creative and put yourself in that book if you have to stop at every page and “highlight the important parts” and “make predictions and ask questions”

Art School | Sophie Roach (Austin, TX)

Drawing and painting her way through an imaginative landscape of intricate and visual entanglements is Austin native, Sophie Roach.  Her artwork has endlessly covered  surfaces from– guitars, beer cans, Vans, to entire rooms.  And if that isn’t already insanely rad, her organic approach and laid back attitude make her not only incredibly humble, but also a super awesome collaborator.  While finishing up one mural and starting up new projects, we had the chance to ask Sophie a few questions about her art, her career, and her approach – from finding her voice, attacking a mural, to digging the quietude one might find as a mail person hah!

Okay thinking about Ugly Story being half a decade old is giving me a mini crisis?? Ugly Story the song is almost old enough to be a kindergartner

yeah fucking tell me abt it buddy i got kids messaging me on the daily like “I’ve been a fan of yours since I was 10! I’m going into college this fall!” UHHH OK THANKS BUT NO THANKS lol

“We’re going to be late for the meal.”

“We’re not going to be late babe.” Nursey says, buttoning up his shirt. “We’ll be on time.”

“On time? Derek, it starts in forty minutes and we’re not even ready to go yet!” Dex argues, shrugging on his jacket.

“We’ll make it Will.” Nursey says. He stops tying his shirt and walks over to his boyfriend “Don’t worry.” he adds, before pressing a small kiss to his nose. Dex laughs, before becoming serious again.

“Ok come on, we can’t be late.”

“We won’t be.” Nursey repeats, pulling on his jacket. “See, I’m ready to go!”

“Ok I’m almost ready to go- Where’s my tie?” Dex asks suddenly looking frantically around him.

“You don’t need a tie babe.” Nursey says “You look great.”

“I want a tie. My dad loaned me this one, he’ll expect to see me wearing it in photos. And I can’t find it and we’re going to be late, and we’re going to miss Ransom and Holster and Lardo’s last team dinner, and Bitty and Ollie and Wicks’ second last team dinner and mine and yours and Chowder’s third last team dinner and-”

“Woah Will, breath.” Nursey says calmly. He places his hands on Dex’s shoulders, and waits until his boyfriend looks at him. “We’re not going to miss the team dinner. If we’re a little late - which we won’t be - they’ll wait for us. Okay?”

After a moment, Dex nods. “Okay.”

“So what colour is this tie?” Nursey asks.

“Navy? Kind of the same colour as your jacket.” Dex says “I had it when I came over to your dorm, I’m sure of it, but I don’t know what happened it-”

“Wear mine.” Nursey says. He’s already loosening the tie around his neck, and pulling it off as he speaks.

“But…I can’t…what tie will you wear?” Dex ask.

“None. I hate ties anyway.” Nursey admits “They always feel too tight around my neck. Tie-ght, if you will.” he laughs, and Dex groans, but can’t hide his smile.

“If you’re sure…” Dex says, and Nursey starts tying the tie on him.

“Of course I’m sure.” Nursey says. He gives Dex a quick kiss before pulling away grinning. “Now come on, or you’ll make us late for the meal.” he says laughing.

“I’ll make us late?! You’re the one who was still in bed half an hour ago!” Dex argues back, laughing as well, as they leave for the meal.
