world's best city

i’m in my prime,
not withering and old.
but i refuse to play
your wicked games any longer.

i know this tether is unbreakable,
but you make me feel like i’m interchangeable.
you drew a target on my heart,
when did this become fatal attraction?

i don’t have the strength,
the energy,
nor the patience
to be held hostage by your love.

so baby please don’t despair
when i say that
i’ve found the courage to
let you go.

you were never meant to be tied down in the first place.

—  believing i could love you was my mistake, c.j.n.

[What planted the seed for you to be politically outspoken, activists, and advocates? What are you excited about this year with World Child Cancer?]

“I think that’s how my parents raised me, you know? I think they raised me to be a citizen of the world, and to be politically conscious, and to look out for anyone who’s less fortunate, and to sort of fight for justice in whatever form. That’s just  p a r t  o f  w h o  I  a m .

I’m really excited. World Child Caner continues to grow. I think we’re going to do, I think, another t-shirt campaign soon. So, yeah. It’s just such a great thing I’ve been able to be a part of and I’m really proud of the work they do everywhere.”


Official shout-out to Mama and Papa Balfe for raising such a strong, kindhearted, intelligent, generous, amazing woman. May we all strive to be a little more like her every day 💜

I will do my best in my new town, so I hope you will live well too.

Ankha left my town, we didn’t even get to say goodbye. It was genuinely upsetting. 

anonymous asked:

I gotta ask. How do you feel about the Cubs chances in the postseason, given that they're overcoming both cursed goat magic and the Giants even year magic? It's gonna be difficult to appease the baseball gods

I know very little about baseball, but it makes perfect sense to me that in this, the year that so many things about America have stopped making sense, the commonly held laws of our national pastime do not seem to apply.

“ I tie my hands up to a chair so I don’t fall that way
Yeah yeah and I’m alright.
I took a sip of something poison but I’ll hold on tight.”
