mindofataurus asked: Be patient. Good things are happening right now that can't be seen on the surface. One of the most essential things you need to do for yourself is to choose a goal that's important to you. Sometimes it takes opening a door to get to a new place, other times, closing one. Find a peaceful way to release the past so you can move forward. Release a grudge every day. Release some weight...
Last night was a lot of fun because I ended up at Illiano’s for dinner with two friends, then met up with another friend and her soon-to-be housemates at a bar. They’re very funny and also very Republican (they love their guns!). To be honest they were a breath of fresh air because they are really chill and unapologetic about who they are. I think I’ve been around politically...

So, my junior year is finished and I’m officially a college senior. Honestly, I’m not particularly happy or sad, but I am content. It’s nice that the end is in sight yet far enough where it’s not an all consuming worry.

Finally finished editing my screenplay (it’s 4 am - whoo!) and it’s 120 pages long. And at the risk of sounding corny it was definitely cathartic and helped me deal with a lot of conflicting feelings I’d been having about identity this semester. Just like my protagonist, we kind of worked through the kinks as we went along and it was nice to share that journey with someone (even...

Stop feeling guilty for being happy. If anyone deserves goodness it is you. Please believe me.

I learned devotion and steadfast loyalty from my mother. I’ve also seen it go incredibly under appreciated in the world. I pray that my mother knows the true magnitude of my love and appreciation. Her love - her mere existence is everything and I live to make her happy by respecting myself enough to preserve, protect and better what she created. My purpose is to thrive and make sure her...

cities-in-flight: let me tell you a bedtime story, kid. you know the one. your favorite. the one you tell yourself when you lie awake at night. it starts, of course, with adulthood. you move out in a haze of independence, at 24, 25, whatever. you find an apartment with a view of the city and a coffeeshop near the lobby. fill it with furniture that shouldn’t match but somehow does. make it so...

مآ أجمّل أنْ تصمتْ فيْ ؤجهْ منْ ينتظرْ منِك الخِصَام وما أجمل أنْ تضحك فيْ وجهْ منْ يُنتظرْ منك البكـاءْ How beautiful is it to stay silent When someone expects you to be enraged from them. And how beautiful it is to laugh When someone thinks you are going to shed tears.

paperpeopleandtowns: what i wonder is how does it end up like this? one day you’re 24, perhaps not on top of the world but at least in the middle of it, and then the next day you are 43 and receiving half hearted mother’s day cards. when do you go from being young and normal to being perceived as a hurricane and mildly psychotic by your children?

Tranquila, tranquila ragazza
This semester I did a little experiment in which I tried bringing the slow life back with me to campus. Discovered slowness is not appreciated here and next semester I’ll be back to doing me - busy, fulfilled and potentially not overlooked. Being static is not for me. Never was. Never will be.
I felt outside of myself today. Tomorrow will be better.
I fucking hate you mom.– Said no black child that is still with us

sydbelle: “I have great news. You are the star of the most poignant film ever conceived. An unprecedented epic saga, it is filmed in one continuous shot, from the first-person perspective. The sets are rich with detail, the lighting always underlines the mood perfectly, the cinematography always magnificent yet unpretentious. The supporting cast is top notch, too. There are no histrionics, no...
